IBM Enhances Cloud Development and Deployment Platforms

IBM announced its IBM Cloud Private platform will be made available to run on the company's enterprise Cloud Managed Services (CMS). IBM is now enabling syncing with IBM Cloud Private, a new solution based on Kubernetes containers designed to rapidly build, modernize and deploy applications in client-managed environments.

By bringing the two together, clients taking advantage of the security and production capabilities of CMS, as well as the cloud-native DevOps capabilities of IBM Cloud Private.

"We see that organizations are aggressively transforming to respond faster to changing market, customer and competitive demands," said Mark Slaga, GM for IBM Cloud Managed Services. "By combining the power of IBM Cloud Managed Services and IBM Cloud Private, customers will be able to benefit from a highly-secure and versatile environment for managing and modernizing apps and turning decades of data into competitive advantage."

Launched late last year, IBM Cloud Private is front and center of IBM's hybrid cloud strategy. With container technology, it can be installed on a wide range of enterprise systems to create a private cloud with an architecture and capabilities consistent with the public IBM Cloud. CMS brings security, disaster recovery, automated infrastructure and application management to the mix. The solution uses the power of Kubernetes container technology to add self-service platform-as-a-service capabilities.
