“Security is a word that’s used to cover many aspects of IT, and it’s a top concern for organizations today, but there’s another important word related to the vendors of IT security products and solutions that safeguard your business: trust.
Securing your business data and applications from malicious access or tampering rests on trust in your security solution and services vendor.”

Although I published a related blog a while ago to bring facts about IBM Redbooks, I am writing again to re-iterate those facts, and to ask you for continuous support and feedback on all the content already published and the content to be released this year. IBM Redbooks continues to deliver sought after technical content, solution examples, usability and integration, and details on how to implement or consume IBM offerings in many areas including cloud, cognitive, analytics, blockchain, high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, high availability, disaster recovery, and others.
IBM Redbooks (Redbooks Redpapers, Redguides, and others), are developed often by way of a residency program and by teams of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in partnership with architects and developers who own the solution. Furthermore, the residency teams execute yet another testing round, and provide direct feedback to product and solution owners, and to the IBM Knowledge Center focal points (IBM online manuals).
IBM Redbooks residency teams combine their knowledge, compound their synergies, and put passion on the technical content delivered in the publications always keeping in mind you the reader, and how you can benefit from the written content.
The following link provides the details of the 5 Things to Know about IBM Redbooks blog:
The blog has been written and published in Spanish: 5 Cosas Que Debes Saber Acerca de IBM Redbooks: https://ibm.co/2uM9TWm
Your feedback is important to improve the quality of IBM Redbooks, demonstrates IBM Redbooks contribute to the success of your technical projects, and helps the IBM Redbooks Team gather funding to continue bringing you IBM Redbooks content.

There are several new technologies these days that companies are struggling to adopt and incorporate into their businesses. One that has been around several years, but is still changing, is the adoption of cloud. IBM has some great tools for creating an on-prem cloud and for managing the cloud (both on-prem and public), but has yet to offer a public cloud for operating systems on Power. That is now changing, has become available, and is IBM’s public cloud for AIX and IBM i.
IBM Power Systems Virtual Server on IBM Cloud is an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) offering that you can use to deploy a virtual server, also known as a logical partition (LPAR), in a matter of minutes. You can quickly deploy Power Systems Virtual Servers to meet your specific business needs.
Before you create a virtual server, you must understand the difference in terminology between a Power Systems Virtual Server service and a Power Systems Virtual Server instance. Think of the Power Systems Virtual Server service as a container for all Power Systems Virtual Server instances at a specific geographic location. The Power Systems Virtual Server service is available from the Resource list in the IBM Cloud UI. The service can contain multiple Power Systems Virtual Server instance.
For example, you can have two Power Systems Virtual Server services, one in Dallas and another in Washington DC. Each service can contain multiple Power Systems Virtual Server instances.
This offering opens the door for opportunities to deploy applications and workloads for AIX and IBM i on the cloud.

Have a nice weekend.
