Hybrid Cloud

The remarkable work of women scientists and researchers at IBM Research

During the month of March, IBM Research put the spotlight on a number of women scientists and engineers, and asked them about their professional and personal motivations, journeys and experiences as women — and particularly, as women in STEM. They represent the breadth of career experiences at IBM Research, across disciplines, geographies, ethnicities, tenures and backgrounds, who share a passion for science and tech, as well as a commitment to help all women rise to meet their aspirations.

Mono2Micro AI speeds up app ‘refactoring’ before cloud move

To help the developers that update legacy applications, our team has created Mono2Micro (monolith-to-microservice) – an AI assistant that modernizes legacy applications to help move them to the cloud as microservices. Our tool simplifies and speeds up the often error-prone “application refactoring” process of partitioning and preserving the original semantics of the legacy, monolith applications.

IBM’s innovation: Topping the US patent list for 28 years running

A patent is evidence of an invention, protecting it through legal documentation, and importantly, published for all to read. The number of patents IBM produces each year – and in 2020, it was more than 9,130 US patents – demonstrates our continuous, never-ending commitment to research and innovation.

Using iter8 and Kiali to evolve your cloud applications while gaining insights into their behavior

IBM Research has partnered with Red Hat to bring iter8 into Kiali. Iter8 lets developers automate the progressive rollout of new microservice versions. From Kiali, developers can launch these rollouts interactively, watch their progress while iter8 shifts user traffic to the best microservice version, gain real-time insights into how competing versions (two or more) perform, and uncover trends on service metrics across versions.

IBM breakthroughs could help bring AI training from cloud to edge

Our latest breakthrough in AI training, detailed in a paper presented at this year’s NeurIPS conference, is expected to dramatically cut AI training time and cost. So considerably in fact that it could help completely erase the blurry border between cloud and edge — offering a key technological upgrade for hybrid cloud infrastructures.

Improving resource efficiency for Kubernetes clusters via load-aware scheduling

Unfortunately, there are no default scheduler plugins in Kubernetes to consider the actual load in clusters for scheduling. To achieve that goal, we developed a way to optimize resource allocation through load-aware scheduling and submitted our "Trimaran: Real Load Aware Scheduling" Kubernetes enhancement proposal, with the hope of soon merging this feature into the Kubernetes scheduler plugin.
