IBM unleashes the power of multicloud

Share this post:

IBM AWS Azure GCPAccording to a recent study, 98 percent of enterprises surveyed plan to use multiple hybrid clouds within three years. This may include the use of multiple cloud providers including IBM Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or traditional on-premises environments.

The IBM approach is to meet you wherever you are on your cloud journey and support your choice of cloud.

While every enterprise has unique business and IT requirements, we often find customers in one of these two scenarios:

Scenario 1

An organization is using a public cloud and wants to expand workloads and applications to other clouds. However, leaders need to know that there are minimal risks of building and managing on those clouds.

Each cloud provider or Kubernetes solution comes with its own tools and operations, so managing a multicloud Kubernetes environment can be overwhelming. Business leaders, developers, site reliability engineers (SREs) and IT operations can use a single, integrated dashboard to manage applications and resources across traditional and multicloud environments in ways that deliver visibility, governance and automation.

Scenario 2

An organization wants a provider that helps it modernize and innovate faster.

Developing game-changing applications still requires being able to modernize and make use of existing investments. IBM supports an open ecosystem with consistent management of a full application lifecycle. Because the IBM Cloud management framework is open and supports AWS, Azure and GCP, enterprises can modernize and innovate faster and with ease.

For example, IBM middleware investments are further extended with an application modernization strategy that can span public clouds. Application workloads on public clouds may also benefit from IBM middleware implementing data analytics services.

Organizations can continue deploying these products in their environments by using IBM Cloud Private on AWS, Azure or GCP. This approach offers the best of both worlds. 

Demand choice and drive innovation

Even if you already have an established cloud strategy that includes the use of a public cloud provider such as AWS, Azure, GCP or IBM Cloud, IBM will meet you where you are and ensure that you have a choice of cloud models: public, dedicated, private and managed. It’s vital that you can run your workloads and develop amazing applications on the model that fits your needs.

Learn about the solutions and samples in each architecture that provide a roadmap to build, extend and deploy an application.
