IBM Journey to Hybrid Cloud Leadership Runs on Intel Technologies

It’s an exciting time in the Intel-IBM partnership, with the announcement of IBM Cloud Satellite and IBM Cloud for Telecommunications. This latest step in our five decades of collaboration reaches beyond defining enterprise IT to co-innovate optimized, cohesive solutions for managing today’s multifaceted cloud ecosystem. 

This current phase of our IBM partnership embraces an OpenBase ecosystem driving innovation for workloads running where you need them with performance and security. Both IBM Cloud Satellite and IBM Cloud for Telecommunications are built cloud-native and optimized to run on Intel architecture across hybrid cloud configurations.

The true power of the Intel-IBM partnership is a modernized cloud stack powered by Intel architecture supporting:  

  1. IBM Cloud Satellite with the power & trust of Intel technologies 

Intel supports IBM’s strength in delivering containerized apps and data with the power and trust of Intel technologies across IBM Cloud and now IBM Cloud Satellite. While today’s broadly varied cloud ecosystem presents management challenges, Intel and IBM deliver integrated, modernized IT solutions. IBM Cloud Satellite on Intel Xeon SP architecture extends cloud services beyond public cloud to multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, and edge with consistent experience and performance. 

“IBM Cloud Satellite extends services from the public cloud to the datacenter, edge and across any cloud with speed, simplicity and consistency. When leveraged together with Intel’s performance and security focused infrastructure, clients can maximize infrastructure efficiency and application performance anywhere.”

-Jason McGee, IBM Fellow, VP and CTO, IBM Cloud Platform

  1. IBM Cloud for Telecommunications with the power & trust of Intel technologies 

IBM Cloud for Telecommunications solutions are optimized to address the specific requirements of operators and enterprise clients across the ecosystem. Derived from IBM’s hybrid cloud offering, this container-based solution helps drive value for workloads running wherever you need them.  

IBM’s container-based services are optimized for Intel technologies and ecosystem enablement. IBM and Intel collaborations on IBM Edge Application Manager and IBM Telco Network Cloud Manager drive innovation and accelerate deployments.   

IBM Cloud for Telecommunications brings faster analytics and compliance. Managing with Cloud Satellite reinforces Cloud for Telecom’s consistency, performance and security, no matter where the workload resides.  

To accelerate development and value-creation for network providers, Red Hat and Intel have created a testbed for network functions, supporting both virtualized and container network functions. The cloud network function (CNF) and virtual network function (VNF) standards-based hardware and software carry rigorous certification of performance and compatibility optimization.  

As with any great partnership, the best is yet to come. The IBM-Intel combined ecosystem is poised to explode with innovation as 5G proliferates.  

Intel Provides the Preferred Architecture

IBM Cloud Satellite extends beyond public cloud with consistent experience and performance. Intel data center technologies across IBM Cloud and IBM Cloud Satellite support IBM’s strength in delivering software & services to the growing hybrid cloud. 

IBM Cloud Satellite offers IBM Cloud services on-prem, public cloud or IBM cloud, and those services run best on Intel for consistent performance and trust. IBM solutions on Intel further advance cloud management with IBM Cloud Satellite’s cloud-native design strengthening application development, operations and scalability.  

With Intel-based IBM Cloud Satellite Infrastructure Service for on-prem workloads, clients can leverage the power and scalability of Intel Xeon processors end-to-end with fully managed infrastructure for public and private clouds. 

Intel is the preferred infrastructure partner for IBM Cloud Satellite. The power and scalability of Intel Xeon processors support IBM Cloud end-to-end with fully managed infrastructure for public and private clouds 

  • IBM Cloud Satellite brings containerized apps & data on-prem, to public cloud or hybrid/multi-cloud.   
  • Intel is the preferred partner for IBM Cloud Satellite – no matter where the workloads live.  
  • For consistent performance & trust, IBM Cloud Satellite runs best on Intel Xeon.
