IBM Delivers Hybrid Cloud for the EnterpriseAugust 31, 2011 No Comments
IBM has announced a new hybrid cloud solution based in part on technology the company got from its 2010 acquisition of Cast Iron.
IBM’s new hybrid cloud helps clients reduce the time it takes to connect, manage and secure public and private clouds. With new integration and management capabilities, organizations of all sizes will be able to gain greater visibility, control and the ability to automate their assets and computing environments, regardless of where they reside, IBM officials said
The new offering makes it easier for users to integrate and manage all of their on- and off-premise resources, and will allow a task that once took several months to be done in a few days.
“As a user of IBM WebSphere Cast Iron, we have been able to not only easily integrate our on-premise and cloud-based applications, but also provide live feeds of order data changes to our sales reps on any device, including mobile phones, tablets and laptops,” Randy Berger, IT manager for process and application development at Siemens, said in a statement. “Expanding on the Cast Iron platform will help IBM provide even better access and management for hybrid clouds.”APPLICATION INTEGRATION, CLOUD COMPUTING, News
