IBM announces new cloud and artificial intelligence services

Thursday, 05 07 2020, Category: Technology, Country: World
Newly appointed IBM CEO Arvind Krishna helmed his first IBM Think conference this week—via streaming video, due to the ongoing global pandemic. In his keynote, he took the opportunity to reassert his belief that “hybrid cloud and AI are the two dominant forces driving digital transformation today.”

Unsurpisingly, many of the subsequent announcements at the conference hinged on hybrid cloud, enabled in large part by IBM’s $34 billion acquisition of Red Hat in 2018.

Take the technical preview of IBM Cloud Satellite. This product “extends cloud services to anywhere a client needs them, as-a-service, on-premises or at the edge,” Krishna said in his keynote address. In other words, Cloud Satellite—which is based on Kubernetes—enables IBM customers to run and manage cloud workloads from a single pane of glass on IBM’s public cloud, in their own data centers, or in edge computing locations.

The full cloud stack includes Red Hat Enterprise Linux and a federated Istio service mesh. Services such as Red Hat OpenShift, IBM’s Cloudant database, and the IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery toolchain can all operate in these “satellite” locations, managed via a central dashboard for policy, configuration management, and network traffic control.
