Earlier this month, IBM announced a new on-premises offering called IBM Cloud Private. An innovative and revolutionary Platform as a Service offering, IBM Cloud Private incorporates the best of open source tools, including Kubernetes container orchestration, with the unique IBM values that enterprises need to be confident in a secure, compliant and performant private cloud platform.
With native support for IBM Power Systems, Cloud Private further sets itself apart from the competition. This combination is critical for several reasons:
Developers can create blazing fast apps by deploying cognitive services on hardware optimized for the work at hand, for higher container density and better throughput.
Apps that integrate new cloud-native apps and services with core business data on enterprise Systems can be co-located with near-zero latency.
Data center administrators can deploy Cloud Private on their choice of Power servers including the IBM Hyperconverged Systems powered by Nutanix, LC servers and enterprise servers with PowerVM.
