IBM Cloud Satellite: Distributed Cloud Solution

Share this post:

In this blog, I will like to show and explain some of the most important elements of IBM Cloud Satellite that is a new distributed cloud solution recently added to the IBM Cloud offerings portfolio. Furthermore, I will provide resources for you to dive deeper into the solution and learn how you can further explore, exploit, and experience the benefits that the solution provides.

IBM Cloud Satellite is a new distributed cloud solution that helps you deploy and run applications consistently across all on-premises, edge computing and public cloud environments from any cloud vendor.

In this video below, Sai Vennam from our IBM Cloud team walks through an example to show how IBM Cloud Satellite can provide you a consistent, on-demand, fully managed set of IBM Cloud Services that run across any cloud environment of your choice.

Why should you use IBM Cloud Satellite?

Many organizations across industries today operate multiple environments, including on-premises, edge, and public clouds. When you build, deploy, and run applications in hybrid and multi-cloud scenarios, it can bring challenges that impact performance and user experiences, for instance:

  • Latency issues
  • Data residency laws that require data to remain “in country”
  • Lack of agility, as applications sprawl across many locations
  • Lack of visibility, as IT teams may be operating several cloud environments and need better visibility of their digital platform and applications

With IBM Cloud Satellite, you can address these challenges by having consistent cloud services across environments in an easy and simple way. This is based on a distributed cloud, defined as the distribution of public cloud services to different physical locations, while the operation and governance, and evolution of the services remain the responsibility of the public cloud provider. 

The result is better security, build-in developer services, and visibility across clouds, on-premises, and/or at the edge.
