What is IBM Cloud Private?

IBM Cloud Private (ICP) helps developers easily build and deploy new, containerized applications and enables administrators to provide top notch availability, performance, and security in an on-premises private cloud. ICP brings together the best open source languages, frameworks, and runtimes with enterprise-grade implementation, applications, and services so enterprises can accelerate transformation and innovation with cloud-native applications and microservices

Delivered with Kubernetes for container orchestration, ICP provides a private image repository, a management console, monitoring frameworks, and a centralized location from which to deploy, manage, monitor, and scale applications. ICP extends beyond the data center with seamless integration, workload mobility, and management outside for multiple public clouds, including the IBM Cloud.

Purpose-built to help enterprises modernize their existing applications, ICP runs on existing data center infrastructure including Power Systems and strikes the perfect balance between agility and control, innovation and security, investment and investment protection.

How does IBM Cloud Private work?

  • Integrates with your choice of IaaS layer, provided by VMware or OpenStack
  • Provides container cluster management and orchestration with Kubernetes
  • Ships with popular open source management, configuration and automation tools
  • Multi-cloud management and integration
