VMware Multi-Cloud Management

Nov 1, 2021   //   by Jean S. Bozman   //   Blog  //  No Comments

Finally, the rubber is meeting the road – and customers who are migrating enterprise applications to the Cloud are having a hard time deciding where to deploy them. Instead of selecting just one cloud service provider (CSP), large enterprises are likely to choose several of them, due to application requirements, data locality, regulations, and geographic location.

Enterprises accelerated their cloud migrations in 2021, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the move to remote offices and work-from-home (WFH). Now, many customers are struggling to blend two distinct computing styles: on-premises enterprise applications and cloud-native applications based on Kubernetes and containers.

When IBM rolled out its line of Power7 systems in 2008, it might have been difficult to imagine what Power systems would become in 2022 – or to know whether there would be a Power10 processor at all.

On Sept. 8, 2021, those questions were answered. The 7nm IBM Power10 processor was described at the Hot Chips conference, highlighting its on-chip AI inference engines.

IBM Launches Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) for Hybrid Cloud Deployments

Aug 24, 2021   //   by Jean S. Bozman   //   Blog  //  No Comments

The “as-a-service” model of delivering storage capability for the hybrid cloud is becoming more widely adopted as the world works to move beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. Storage delivered as a service really is the cloud expression of distributed storage, allowing customers to pull together data from separate “data hubs” as logical resources for the hybrid cloud.

IBM is looking to accelerate the migration of application code – no matter how it was developed – by speeding its delivery into the IBM Cloud.

The IBM Cloud Code Engine offer, announced last fall, is an open-source-based runtime environment that supports rapid deployment onto the IBM Cloud. It became generally available this spring (March, 2021).

IBM Cloud Code Engine is designed to allow developers to rapidly deploy both existing applications and new applications into the IBM Cloud.

AI Technology to Implement Secure End-To-End Elections

Apr 25, 2021   //   by Susan Eustis   //   Blog, Reports  //  No Comments

Wintergreen Research: AI provides the technology to implement secure end-to-end elections. Modern secure systems depend on new technology, new ways of conducting elections, new approaches to getting voters registered, new ways of casting votes, and new ways of getting votes counted. AI has the ability to implement secure systems that go end-to-end to protect the will of the voters and mitigate fraud by making it detectable.

Even in the teeth of the pandemic, IBM is expected to deliver its POWER10 processors in calendar 2021, continuing its drive to place a new generation of POWER microprocessor engines in the world’s cloud data centers. Cloud migrations, accelerated by the pandemic’s impact on business worldwide, are making it possible to deploy many types of CPUs and GPUs in the cloud infrastructure, which is dominated by servers based on Intel x86 processors.

IBM POWER10 is on the Near Horizon

POWER10 processors are aimed at running in the hybrid cloud, supporting AI/ML analytics applied to enterprise applications and scalable enterprise workloads (e.g. SAP, SAS). That strongly aligns the POWER10 processors with IBM’s strategic marketing priorities for hybrid cloud and AI/ML.
