Why Satellite now
IBM Cloud Satellite explained
How does IBM Cloud Satellite work?
With IBM Cloud Satellite, you can use a single API to create a Satellite location and then add host machines from any cloud, from your on-premises data center, or from the edge. You can then consume IBM Cloud services anywhere you need them. You can consistently deploy, manage, and control your workloads across these environments.
What are the reasons to use IBM Cloud Satellite?
You can run your workloads in the location of your choice to better meet legal requirements, compliance standards, data speeds, and network latency requirements – all while you use security-rich IBM Cloud services to modernize applications and increase development velocity.
How do I manage my applications across environments?
Satellite Config provides a global view of your applications and provides control over configuration and application deployment. Through a single dashboard, you can manage the deployment of Kubernetes resources across cloud, on-premises, and in edge environments to gain global visibility into your apps and operations.
How can I manage my network traffic?
You can control and audit the network traffic and communication flow between your locations with a built-in Satellite Link and you can use IBM Cloud monitoring and logging services to consolidate your logs, metrics and alerts.
How do I access IBM Cloud services?
Every Satellite location is connected to IBM Cloud through an encrypted TLS tunnel called Satellite Link. You can access the link in a security-rich manner with IBM Cloud services in your Satellite location. You can use IBM Cloud services with the same security and compliance processes as in IBM Cloud.
