IBM De­vel­ops New Cloud Stor­age So­lu­tion

New Patent-Pend­ing So­lu­tion Se­curely Mi­grates Data Across Mul­ti­ple Clouds

HWM (Malaysia) - - REPORT -

In­terCloud, IBM’s patent-pend­ing soft­ware, is aimed at pro­vid­ing users with a sim­pler way to man­age cloud stor­age. The new in­ven­tion over­comes the con­cerns of data re­siliency, se­cu­rity and ser­vice con­ti­nu­ity. This al­lows users to seam­lessly store and move data across mul­ti­ple clouds.

“Our cloud-of-clouds in­ven­tion can help clients avoid ser­vice out­ages and se­cu­rity in­ci­dents that im­pact the re­li­a­bil­ity and se­cu­rity of in­di­vid­ual clouds. We are adding mul­ti­ple lev­els of re­dun­dancy and re­li­a­bil­ity by mak­ing cloud mi­gra­tion and backup eas­ier and faster than is cur­rently pos­si­ble,” said Evan­ge­los Eleft­he­riou from IBM.

IBM sci­en­tists have de­vel­oped a soft­ware toolkit known as In­terCloud Stor­age (ICS­tore). This al­lows stor­age sys­tems to ac­cess and use third­party pri­vate and pub­lic clouds for data mi­gra­tion, backup or even file shar­ing. ICS­tore ex­plic­itly ad­dresses the chal­lenges of space ef­fi­ciency, data syn­chro­niza­tion, and meta­data co­or­di­na­tion when stor­ing data re­dun­dantly on ob­ject stor­age.

The de­fault stor­age provider, SoftLayer, an IBM com­pany, uti­lizes ICS­tore to en­able clients to over­come lim­its in their cloud stor­age ca­pac­ity by dy­nam­i­cally rout­ing to an al­ter­na­tive stor­age sys­tem, such as eas­ily mi­grat­ing from a re­mote pub­lic-cloud to on-premise pri­vate-cloud, op­ti­miz­ing the over­all ef­fi­ciency of data stor­age man­age­ment.

IBM is the global leader in cloud with an un­matched port­fo­lio of open cloud so­lu­tions that help clients build, rent or tap into cloud ca­pa­bil­i­ties To­day, IBM has more than 100 cloud SaaS so­lu­tions, 37,000 ex­perts with deep in­dus­try knowl­edge help­ing clients trans­form, and a net­work of more than 25 global cloud de­liv­ery cen­ters.
