IBM Releases New Private-Cloud-As-A-Service

About three months ago, IBM further diversified its OpenStack technology base by acquiring Blue Box, a vendor of hosted private clouds and the software that enables them.

Big Blue expanded on Blue Box technology Wednesday by deploying Box Panel, the cloud management console that Blue Box developed, in the 40-plus IBM SoftLayer data centers around the world.

IBM describes the upgraded and scaled offering as a "private-cloud-as-a-service," said Angel Diaz, IBM's vice president of cloud architecture and technology.

With Box Panel allowing IBM to remotely manage, update and patch private clouds while they are operating across IBM's global infrastructure, "you get elasticity, ease of use, but at the same time you get control of everything you want," Diaz told CRN.

IBM has staked a lot on a hybrid cloud strategy that leverages the interoperability of the OpenStack platform. IBM contributed about 10 percent of the code to the last OpenStack release.

"The way we differentiate is providing a consistent, geographically scalable cloud based on open standards, open source, that folks can connect with any other environment out there," Diaz said.

The benefits of OpenStack are becoming ever more apparent in the increasingly complex modern IT environment.

"No application is an island, especially in today's world," Diaz said. "A single application touches so many different providers."
