Why Swift?

The right code running in the right place can make a huge difference in the performance and security delivered.

That’s a major reason why IBM has made a strong commitment to Swift, a new open-source programming language. And it’s why we continue to integrate Swift with our technologies, including IBM LinuxONE, the world’s most advanced Linux-only system.The ability to run Swift on LinuxONE is important because it delivers a consistent end-to-end experience for app development while opening up new paradigms and programming models for applications that span hybrid clouds.

The ability to run Swift on LinuxONE is important because it delivers a consistent end-to-end experience for app development while opening up new paradigms and programming models for applications that span hybrid clouds.

In a hybrid cloud, LinuxONE typically plays a key role as the core system-of-record because it has the processing speed, scale, availability and security to handle business-critical applications and high-value data. LinuxONE features the world’s highest levels of security and the world’s fastest commercial processors with a single system able to handle up to 30 billion RESTful web interactions a day.

With Swift for LinuxONE, developers will be able to write applications in Swift across the entire hybrid cloud – the smart phone, the cloud or the LinuxONE back-end system. This simplifies and streamlines the development process by allowing the same developers to write the full end-to-end solution.
