It has been some time since we have not heard big news from what was once one of the most relevant tech companies in the world and the historic rival of the Cupertino based tech giant, Apple Inc. But it looks like IBM is ready to take what has become a necessary step, if you were to take into consideration the fact that most of the big names in the world of tech have expressed their support to this relatively new domain. The OpenStack services released by IBM promise to get the tech company right back on the track, as they need to act quickly wisely in order to keep up with the tech rivals on the market.
Recently, the tech company IBM has recently released an announcement in which they have made it public that they intend to offer a series of OpenStack services. They have said that they will make these services available for all the open source deployments, whether they are public, hybrid or private.
Some analysts in the field in connection to the matter of open source have said that IBM and OpenStack planned an appropriate moment for the release of this series of services. Even if the giants of the world of technology, like Google, Apple Inc. or Facebook have already expressed their support for the open source platform, highlighting its benefits and contributing with their own products to this area, IBM might still have a chance to impose themselves in this field.
The OpenStack services which have been recently released by IBM intend to make application and data integration available through a large number of clouds. And, according to recent announcements by the tech company, IBM is ready to invest in a major way in the field of open source. The tech company has said that approximately 500 developers are working on the OpenStack services and other open source project are on the way as well.
However, these days IBM keeps its OpenStack services in the beta phase. Still, the users can access a portfolio of hybrid services, cloud monitoring tools and security as well. IBM has added that they have worked along with Intel in order to assure the security for their OpenStack services.
As for the future of these OpenStack services by IBM, the American tech company has said that Big Blue will team up with an IT companies group from Kuwait, United Business Group, to release hybrid cloud deployments.
