IBM Cloud Managed Services synchs with IBM Cloud Private for Next-Gen Application Development
June 21, 2018

IBM announced that for the first time IBM Cloud Private application platform will be made available to run on the company's enterprise Cloud Managed Services (CMS).

IBM is now enabling its CMS customers to help extend their capabilities and maximise 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.

"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. "To support them in their journeys, IBM is continuously innovating and adapting its cloud offerings. 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. Thanks 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 the power of 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.
