IBM revealed today (in beta) a new advanced virtual deployment software which enables organizations to build a cloud environment rapidly with greater ease of management than ever before. This IBM software has tremendous speed and can deploy a single virtual machine in seconds, dozens in a few minutes and hundreds or thousands at the unrivaled speed of under an hour.
“These new technologies deliver a definitive step forward in simplifying the way IT staff can manage the cloud,” said Ric Telford, vice president of Cloud Services, IBM. “They come at a critical time for businesses as the demand for computing resources and new services are becoming nearly insatiable, despite generally stagnate budgets. IBM is delivering again on our promise of leading cloud innovation with a focus on fundamentally transforming the economics of IT.”
IBM also announced three new breakthroughs for managing virtual environments in today’s press release.
