IBM IT infrastructure fuels hybrid cloud

The global pandemic and ensuing economic disruption have accelerated plans for nearly every organization to digitize their business and operations. Our clients are increasing their investments in AI and cloud while moving swiftly to reduce costs and address security with approaches like confidential computing and resiliency.

IBM’s hybrid cloud approach coupled with Red Hat is at the epicenter of this swift and massive transformation. Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform, gives organizations the flexibility to choose where to deploy workloads. It also balances the need to keep workloads close to the data on premises or in a private cloud, while also taking advantage of the agility and flexibility of a public cloud such as IBM Cloud.

Across IBM IT infrastructure, we’re seeing three key use cases for hybrid cloud adoption:

As part of this effort, this week we announced new and upcoming hybrid cloud container offerings for IBM ZIBM LinuxONEIBM Power Systems and IBM Storage that give our clients even more flexibility to choose where best to deploy applications in the hybrid cloud, including:

In addition, earlier this week, we announced new Red Hat OpenShift capabilities and support for IBM Storage. Some of the enhancements include the IBM Storage Suite for IBM Cloud Paks expanded support for container-native data access on OpenShift and CoreOS with IBM Spectrum Scale. Furthermore, IBM Cloud Object Storage adds support for the Open Source s3fs file-to-object storage interface bundled with Red Hat OpenShift.

For more than twenty years, IBM has worked closely with Red Hat to bring application portability to our clients at every major technology reinvention from Java to Linux; driven by our shared values to provide a flexible, open, hybrid and secured enterprise platform for mission-critical workloads. Together, we are focused on delivering hybrid cloud innovation and differentiation to clients globally.

By working with Red Hat to maximize the value of Red Hat OpenShift on our platforms, we are redefining how organizations create and deliver value, work, compete and transact—all supported by the strengths of the IBM IT infrastructure portfolio: industry expertise in mission-critical business processes; proven security, compliance and governance; the ability to build and run anywhere with consistency; helping clients to automate, predict and modernize workflows and leverage the world’s innovations from confidential computing, to the bleeding edge of security innovation and more. These are all key attributes that will be critical to succeed in the era of hybrid cloud.

This is an exciting next step in our journey to leverage our unique capabilities and help our clients realize the potential of a hybrid cloud business model for their most critical work.
