The IBM Cloud platform
premises, or a combination
- With public cloud, the resources are made available to you over the public internet. It is a multi-tenant environment, and resources like hardware and infrastructure are managed by IBM®.
- A hybrid cloud solution is a combination of public and private, giving you the flexibility to move workloads between the two based on your business and technological needs. IBM uses Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud, the market-leading hybrid cloud container platform for hybrid solutions that enables you to build once and deploy anywhere. With IBM Cloud Satellite, you can create a hybrid environment that brings the scalability and on-demand flexibility of public cloud services to the applications and data that runs in your secure private cloud.
- Support for multicloud and hybrid multicloud solutions is also available, which makes it easy for you to work with different vendors. IBM Cloud Paks are software products for hybrid clouds that enable you to develop apps once and deploy them anywhere.
- Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is available as a public cloud service that lets you establish your own private cloud-like computing environment on shared public cloud infrastructure. With VPC, enterprises can define and control a virtual network that is logically isolated from all other public cloud tenants, creating a private, secure place on the public cloud.
With IBM’s open source technologies, such as Kubernetes, Red Hat OpenShift, and a full range of compute options, including virtual machines, containers, bare metal, and serverless, you have the control and flexibility that’s required to support workloads in your hybrid environment. You can deploy cloud-native apps while also ensuring workload portability.
Whether you need to migrate apps to the cloud, modernize your existing apps by using cloud services, ensure data resiliency against regional failure, or use new paradigms and deployment topologies to innovate and build your cloud-native apps, the platform’s open architecture is built to
accommodate your use case.
