IBM unveils software that brings public cloud to private datacenters

It's a move by the tech company to try and provide a consistent technology platform for building applications, so it's easier for business users to move their workloads to and from the public cloud.

IBM is now joining the fray.

"IBM Cloud Private brings rapid application development and modernization to existing IT infrastructure and positions it to be combined with the services and experience of a public cloud platform".

Though built on Kubernetes, the platform will also support Docker and Cloud Foundry, with the intention of facilitating 'integration and portability of workloads as they evolve to any cloud environment, including the public IBM Cloud'.

To tap into this market IBM is launching a new Cloud Private software platform, designed to enable companies to create on-premises cloud capabilities similar to public clouds to accelerate app development.

IBM Private Cloud also includes access to a range of management and DevOps tools such as APM, Netcool, UrbanCode, and Cloud Brokerage. The two also are leveraging Google Container Engine, a managed Kubernetes service.

"IBM Cloud Private also separates itself from other leading solutions with an extensive catalog of containerized services, including IBM WebSphere, Db2 and MQ, to support complex enterprise applications", they said in the email. In mid-October, IBM announced new services created to reduce the complexity that comes with multi-cloud deployments and drive down the costs associated with enterprises moving to the cloud.

Elder added that IBM Cloud Private plays more at the platform level in the hybrid cloud equation. That's particularly important for customers who have legacy workloads and want to move them to a more modern platform. In addition, 51.4 percent are using both public and private cloud infrastructures, and 29.2 percent expect to do the same within the next year.

The infrastructure is compatible with Cisco, Dell EMC, Intel, Lenovo, NetApp, and is optimised for IBM Z.

This is another step in IBM supporting more open-source software.

The "Security Vulnerability Advisor" scans containers across the cloud to surface potentially serious issues and weaknesses.
