IBM recently announced a new IBM Cloud Private software platform to help companies unlock billions of dollars in technology investment, directly coursed to core data, applications, and cloud-native tools.
Simply put, IBM Cloud Private will enable companies to create cloud capabilities similar to public cloud facilities, on private premises. Whether it involves accelerating app development, or using cloud-focused tools, the platformworks on open source Kubernetes-based container application. Additionally, it supports both Docker containers and Cloud Foundry. These facilitiate integration and portability of workloads towards any cloud environment.
Plus, IBM also announced new container-optimized versions of core enterprise software, like IBM WebSphere Liberty, Db2 and MQ. A good example of implementing IBM Cloud Private involves airlines. FOr example, they might employ the tech towards building a core application that tracks frequent flyer miles into a private cloud environment. Then, they will connect it to a new mobile app in the public cloud.
IBM Cloud Private acts as another huge step in IBM’s support for organizations to create, deploy, and manage apps in a preferred cloud environment. IBM and Google even announced an effort to create and open source the Grafeas project. Primarily, this will allow developers to handle the security of containers. Last month, IBM also released Open Liberty, a new lightweight, open-source version of its WebSphere Liberty Java application server. For this one, it makes it easier for devs to prepare apps for any cloud environment.
