IBM SOA Supports Managing a Hybrid Cloud Environment
A hybrid cloud is one that leverages existing IT data center capability while moving some functionality to the cloud. An IBM hybrid cloud computing model provides web-based software, middleware and computing resources on demand by leveraging WebSphere application server and mission critical MQ messaging. Hybrid cloud environment creates new business value by empowering internal and external communities to define and create new offerings and services in the context of changing market conditions. Middleware and SOA are a key part of flexible response to changing market conditions. By making these capabilities available in a hybrid cloud environment, companies gain immediate competitive advantage
Hybrid computing relates to leveraging workloads so that platforms are best suited to the processing being performed. Data intensive workloads like analytics are best performed on a distributed computer. Transaction intensive workloads that have many database accesses and transfer of data between siloes within an organization work well on the mainframe. Thus, hybrid computing systems are universal, permitting IT to leverage the platform that best suits a workload. Security and governance are being adapted to cloud computing environments. This leveraging of hybrid computing processing makes it possible to accommodate various workloads efficiently.
Hybrid cloud environments improve speed and dexterity by delivering new offerings and services more rapidly through new models of self-service and deployment. This is the essence of cloud. Companies that are implementing cloud capabilities are expecting a huge area of growth from cloud computing supported by IBM hybrid cloud capabilities.
IBM is positioned to deliver hybrid infrastructure with real spend to support cloud infrastructure. Hybrid cloud systems are from IBM and Hewlett Packard are able to deliver IT without boundaries by enabling new IT and business processes that break down traditional silos and simplify access to information in order to deliver better business outcomes. http://www.ibm.com/cloud-computing/us/en/?csr=agus_brepcloud-20120101&cm=k&cr=google&ct=EPCLOUD1&S_TACT=EPCLOUD1&ck=hybrid_cloud_computing&cmp=USRB&mkwid=sF6RBLVTA_17595637547_432hpc8503
