IBM Acquires Blue Box for OpenStack Cloud Migration

IBM has acquired Blue Box Group, a managed private cloud provider built on OpenStack. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Blue Box, which is based in Seattle, provides a private cloud as a service platform designed to enable easier deployment of workloads across hybrid cloud environments.

IBM said the acquisition reinforces its commitment to deliver flexible cloud computing models that make it easier for customers to move to data and applications across clouds and meets their needs across public, private and hybrid cloud environments. Blue Box also strengthens IBM Cloud’s existing OpenStack portfolio, with the introduction of a remotely managed OpenStack offering to provide clients with a local cloud and increased visibility, control and security.

“IBM is dedicated to helping our clients migrate to the cloud in an open, secure, data rich environment that meet their current and future business needs,” said IBM General Manager of Cloud Services Jim Comfort. “The acquisition of Blue Box accelerates IBM’s open cloud strategy making it easier for our clients to move to data and applications across clouds and adopt hybrid cloud environments."
