IBM Expands OpenStack Cloud Services

IBM is rolling out an expanded suite of Cloud OpenStack Services that allow customers to integrate applications and data across hybrid clouds including public, dedicated and local cloud environments. The services can be hosted on the Softlayer infrastructure without changing code or configurations.

The OpenStack solutions are pitched as a way for customers to avoid vendor lock-in or costly customization for cloud applications.

“As a top contributor to OpenStack, IBM firmly believes that an open cloud architecture translates into significant cost savings for our clients and will rapidly expand the cloud marketplace,” said IBM Vice President of Cloud Architecture and Technology Dr. Angel Diaz. “By delivering a complete portfolio of OpenStack services to the market, we are enabling our clients with what they need to quickly move applications and data across multiple cloud environments without fear of getting locked into a single cloud environment.”
