IBM has announced that its hybrid cloud services are now generally available in any environment – on any cloud, on premises or at the edge – via IBM Cloud Satellite. Lumen Technologies and IBM have integrated IBM Cloud Satellite with the Lumen Edge platform to enable clients to harness hybrid cloud services in near real-time and build innovative solutions at the Edge.
IBM Cloud Satellite brings a secured, unifying layer of cloud services for clients across environments, regardless of where their data resides. This is essential to help address critical data privacy and data sovereignty requirements.
“With the Lumen platform’s broad reach, we are giving our enterprise customers access to IBM Cloud Satellite to help them drive innovation more rapidly at the edge,” said Paul Savill, SVP Enterprise Product Management and Services, Lumen. “Our enterprise customers can now extend IBM Cloud services across Lumen’s robust global network, enabling them to deploy data-heavy edge applications that demand high security and ultra-low latency. By bringing secure and open hybrid cloud capabilities to the edge, our customers can propel their businesses forward and take advantage of the emerging applications of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”
Howard Boville, Head of IBM Hybrid Cloud Platform, said: “IBM is working with clients to leverage advanced technologies like Edge computing and AI, enabling them to digitally transform with hybrid cloud while keeping data security at the forefront. With IBM Cloud Satellite, clients can securely gain the benefits of cloud services anywhere, from the core of the data centre to the farthest reaches of the network.”
IBM is also extending Watson Anywhere with the availability of IBM Cloud Pak for Data-As-a-Service with IBM Cloud Satellite.Click below to share this article
