IBM to Extend Its Mainframe Based Cloud Capabilities to CSC Inc Clients

With this collaboration, the CSC clients would be able to benefit from the mainframe infrastructure for the cloud based offerings of IBM Corporation.

CSC and IBM agreementGreatResponder.com  A new collaboration agreement to strengthen the partnership in the domain of cloud computing services and infrastructure sharing, IBM and CSC signed a partnership program. In this new agreement, the CSC clients would be able to leverage the IBM’s mainframe based infrastructure to use multiple cloud based services. The high end cloud infrastructure of IBM well known as IBM Cloud for Z, will help the CSC clients in making the transition to the cloud.

IBM will offer its fully managed cloud based services for Z system, which will create a great value for the clients of CSC Inc.

While elaborating the nature of the services extended by the IBM, it was informed that the collaborative offerings will include software, mainframe hardware, monitoring services, governance and the IBM support. With this agreement, a huge cut in the operational cost for the CSC is being anticipated in the market.

The executive vice president and the general managers of global infrastructure service division at CSC Inc, Mr. Stephen Hilton, in his official statement said, “Many clients are looking for ways to make historically fixed cost more variable to migrate from legacy platforms to modernized applications and to a cloud enabled infrastructure. This new cloud-based service expands our cloud offering and is a natural evolution of our long-standing alliance with IBM.”

It is very important to note that the CSC has been trying to pursue its vision to become a service-enabled enterprise. This partnership with IBM for the highly secure, reliable and reputed cloud infrastructure use would enable the company to be able to pursue its technological vision more easily.

The company wants to achieve flexibility, and greater security of the valuable data and processes of its client while transitioning their processes to the cloud. This need was easily fulfilled by the materialization of this partnership of cloud collaboration.

While talking about the secure cloud infrastructure, IBM said in its official statement, “Since Cloud for z runs on IBM’s enterprise mainframes, the service will also provide CSC clients with greater computing security to reduce operating risks and cut the costs of their computing and IT operations by using a shared infrastructure for the software, server, disk, and the tape requirements”.

This is a win-win deal for both of the partners of this agreement.

IBM to Launch Blockchain Cloud Capabilities in LinuxOne Server

Super secure business to business blockchain cloud capabilities would enable the businesses to test privacy, performance and interoperability in a secure environment.

IBM LinuxOne ServerGreatResponder.com  It was announced by the IBM Corporation that its LinuxOne Servers would be capable of implementing the blockchain technology to achieve high security, robustness and reliability of the operations in a secure environment. The capability is being launched in beta version for review and customer feedback, but it will be commercially launched very soon.

With this launch of latest technology, the customers would be able to check the performance, interoperability and privacy of the database in a highly secure and independent environment. It is very important to note that the blockchain projects are based on a highly secure, reliable, robust and encrypted database infrastructure, which is created based on the distributed database system. The entire database consists of many independent and isolated data structures that build up the database in robust and reliable design.

The  IBM Fellow for the Enterprise Solutions, Donna Dillenberger, in the statement said, “Blockchain will change the way we transfer high value goods, digital assets and financial instruments. To accelerate blockchain adoption, clients must trust the infrastructure and the system that blockchain is running on. With IBM Blockchain, we are expanding access to the emerging technology — not only by making it easy to get up and running on the IBM Cloud, but also by using the most secure infrastructure.”

It was further elaborated that the current launch of the capabilities is in Beta version. The full version of the cloud computing block chain capabilities would be launched very shortly. With the official launch, the customers who use the blockchain projects for highly mission critical procedures and tasks would be able to run their projects in highly secure, encrypted, robust and reliable environment.

It is very important to note that this capability is being introduced in the LinuxOne Server of IBM. This service is designed for highly secure and mission critical projects for those companies that undergo high security and classified projects in the domain of governments and security agencies.

While talking about the latest capabilities of IBM servers, the CEO of EverLedger, a reputed client of IBM, said in his official statement, “When you are in the business of provenance, secured records, access and transparency are everything. There is no compromise when it comes to security and one cannot underestimate the expertise required to enable this. Having the opportunity to build, test, scale and refine Everledger on IBM Blockchain, underpinned by a security-rich infrastructure, is a game changer.”

IBM Launches Quantum Computing Service for Cloud Users

The Quantum Experience that is quantum computing platform of IBM is available now to the general public through the cloud platform of the company to access and run experiment on it.

IBM QuantemGreatResponder.com  IBM announces the launch of IBM Quantum Experience a platform that will be delivered to any desktop and mobile device. It will drive IBM’s hard work to redefine its view in the business. The company trusts that quantum computing is the future of computing and has the possibilities to resolve certain troubles that are not possible to resolve on today’s supercomputers.

Qubits are a quantum bit, the fundamental unit of quantum computing, different from classical computing. Qubits can be zero or one or both. The chance for superposition, being both a one and a zero, means that quantum computers can execute some workloads significantly more rapidly than classical computers.

“Quantum computers are very different from today’s computers, not only in what they look like and are made of, but more importantly in what they can do. Quantum computing is becoming a reality and it will extend the computation far beyond what is imaginable with today’s computers,” said Arvind Krishna, SVP at IBM Research. “This moment represents the birth of quantum cloud computing.”

IBM is permitting concerned clients to access a 5 qubit quantum computer, it’s called IBM Quantum Experience. The real hardware is in the IBM Research Lab in New York State. IBM is given a programming interface and the capability to run trial programs on a real quantum computer. IBM has produced its own quantum chip running at 5 qubits.  It is estimated that it could take a machine running between 50 and 100 qubits to surpass the potentials of today’s fastest supercomputers.

“By giving hands-on access to IBM’s experimental quantum systems, the IBM Quantum Experience will make it easier for researchers and the scientific community to accelerate innovations in the quantum field, and help discover new applications for this technology.”

IBM’s step to present the service is attractive because it permits common people to try out infrastructure that has usually been limited to highly confined research labs. Though researchers expand more powerful quantum computers, IBM wishes to know which applications and algorithms will be significant and useful to businesses, using what’s accessible now. IBM planned an arrangement system that allows tests run in sequence. After a job is executed, the service sends out the outcome of the trial in an email.
