Don’t build a dead-end cloud

Work with IBM as your trusted partner to innovate with an open cloud approach.

IBM has been a leader in the current renaissance of open technologies such as OpenStack, Cloud Foundry, Node.js and OpenWhisk. We believe diverse communities and open governance are the lifelines for successful open technology initiatives.

Today, IBM is also helping to drive an open agenda with the emerging “born on the cloud” container-based, application development ecosystem, with founding positions in the Open Container Initiative (OCI) and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
