Service management for hybrid clouds with Cast Iron

One important aspect of hybrid clouds is to have a common service management platform.  The ability to provision resources, monitor resources, synchronize LDAP directories, and govern and manage workload through a common interface is extremely valuable.  This can be especially challenging in hybrid cloud environments because resources are spread across private cloud on-premises resources, and public cloud resources such as IBM SmartCloud Enterprise.  To accommodate this requirement, IBM provides a common service management platform for hybrid cloud, leveraging the WebSphere CastIron to facilitate both public and private cloud resources to receive service management though a single interface.

The following image shows how both private and public cloud resources are provisioned through a common interface.
