IBM Brigs Blue Box OpenStack to Global Data Centers

Blue Box, an IBM company that delivers OpenStack-based, Private Cloud as a Service (PCaaS), is now available in any of IBM’s globally integrated cloud data centers running SoftLayer infrastructure.

The announcement comes less than 90 days after IBM's acquisition of Blue Box.

“Implementing Cloudsoft AMP on Blue Box Cloud across IBM Cloud data centers will allow us to meet the increased demand from customers for hybrid cloud solutions built on OpenStack," says Duncan Johnston-Watt, CEO, Cloudsoft Corporation. "The combination of Blue Box's best-in-class OpenStack service and IBM Cloud's global footprint and legendary private network will enable us to model, deploy and manage our customers' business critical applications and services worldwide."

“I’ve been impressed by the way the IBM and Blue Box engineering teams have collaborated to quickly bring Blue Box Cloud to a worldwide infrastructure platform,” said Jesse Proudman, CTO at Blue Box, an IBM Company. “Today, we’ve taken a big step toward our goal of delivering private clouds to customers anywhere in the world—and we’re offering deployment timelines that are unheard of within traditional private cloud.”
