IBM offers Indian enterprises building blocks to create private clouds
The solution will allow enterprises start transition to a cloud-based infrastructure and reap benefits of the model.
IBM India today announced the launch of the IBM Smart Cloud Entry, to enable organizations quickly deploy self-service provisioning of virtualized workloads.
The solution, according to IBM will allow enterprises start the transition to a cloud-based infrastructure and reap the benefits of a cloud delivery model.
“With the IBM Smart Cloud Entry, we will enable customers to transition smoothly to a cloud-based infrastructure through an easy-to-use web-based interface. The solution is competitively positioned for Indian enterprises to easily tap in to the benefits of cloud,” said Rahul Bindal, Vice President, Growth Initiatives, Systems and Technology Group, IBM India /South Asia.
According to IBM, users can now request and provision an environment quickly through an easy-to-use web-based interface, while IT managers can monitor and manage this environment for improved efficiency and utilization of the data center. This enables scalability by allowing additional servers or blades to be added to the cloud infrastructure. It also includes basic workload metering to support a pay-per-use business model.
The IBM Smart Cloud Entry is part of the SmartCloud Foundation portfolio which contains a core set of private-cloud functions distilled from thousands of IBM client engagements and millions of cloud-based transactions IBM manages every day.
The portfolio is designed to help both entry-level firms and more sophisticated clients quickly adopt private clouds from scratch or transform their current virtualized systems into highly efficient cloud infrastructures.
A new report from The Economist Intelligence Unit and IBM has found that among 572 business leaders surveyed, almost three-fourths indicate their companies have piloted, adopted or substantially implemented cloud in their organizations, and 90 percent expect to have done so in three years. The number of respondents whose companies have substantially implemented cloud is expected to grow from 13 percent today to 41 percent in three years.
