Cloud Private platform is coming soon to IBM CMS
|Richard Harris in Cloud Services Tuesday, June 26, 2018|
IBM's Cloud Private application platform will soon be available on the company's enterprise Cloud Managed Application Services.
IBM Cloud Private is set to run on IBM's fully managed, cloud environment. The company wants to help CMS customers extend their capabilities and maximize existing investments by synching 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-rich and production-ready cloud environment that CMS offers can now reap the benefits of the latest cloud-native DevOps capabilities of IBM Cloud Private, accelerating time to market for innovative, cloud-native applications.
IBM Cloud Private is front and center of IBM’s hybrid cloud strategy. Due to the flexibility of 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. IBM Cloud Private’s combination of innovation, flexibility, and control is particularly important to companies in regulated industries such as finance with high standards for security and reliability.
Coupled with CMS’ built-in security, disaster recovery, and automated infrastructure and application management, IBM’s clients can now have a powerful combination that helps provide the security, flexibility, and speed they need to compete in the most dynamic markets.
The solution uses Kubernetes container technology to add self-service Platform-as-a-Service capabilities to IBM’s managed CMS cloud infrastructure. In addition, IBM’s CMS clients can benefit from faster access to IBM’s analytics, data, middleware and Watson portfolios available through the IBM Cloud Private platform.
IBM Cloud Private running on CMS will be fully operational by July 2018 and will be fully supported by IBM services.
