A new strategic collaboration with Red Hat will more easily extend Red Hat virtualized and cloud workloads in the IBM Private Cloud, backed by the two companies' joint marketing and sales.

IBM has announced new revisions to its Cloud Object Storage pricing model, enabling its customers to gain access to improved latency for "cold" information that is normally stored very cheaply but with practical limitations on speed of access.

IBM has today announced a duo of collaborations around the cloud, plus a third one leveraging blockchain technology. "Now, customers who don't have in-house expertise to manage an OpenStack infrastructure can more confidently consume Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Red Hat Ceph Storage on IBM Private Cloud".

IBM has also signed a deal with Veritas, also around hybrid cloud, to help enterprises working with increasing data volumes better manage, optimize and protect data across hybrid cloud environments. In a morning geared towards the FS market segment, IBM announced new developer tools for Financial Services, as well as blockchain as a service on Hyperledger Fabric.

IBM and Red Hat said they will jointly sell new offerings for private cloud deployments, including workload migrations, disaster recovery, capacity expansion and data center consolidation. This new announcement sees Veritas certify the IBM Cloud Object Storage family of software and cloud services for use with the forthcoming Veritas NetBackup 8.0.

What does this mean? LG is reported to come up with this advancement first and Samsung is expected to do the same thing. We say seemingly, because they don't quite match up with the images of the S8 in various colors that leaked recently.

With this aim, IBM said NetBackup 8.0 will be certified to run on IBM Cloud for further data protection of cloud-based workloads. NetBackup 8.0 has scheduled availability of 2Q17.

Technology major IBM and China's Wanda Group have formed a partnership to provide cloud services to businesses in the world's second-largest economy. The agreement also calls for joint go-to-market and support initiatives from both companies.

IBM said the collaboration will give its enterprise clients greater reach and scale, allowing them to begin with a local implementation before eventually scaling globally with cloud capabilities. IBM's promise on this service is that it will offer customers a way to get the data they've marked for cold storage in the IBM Cloud "in hundreds of milliseconds instead of minutes".

Hybrid cloud application management company Cloudsoft is already using the service in beta and has deployed its Red Hat Enterprise Linux workloads in the IBM Private Cloud, the companies said.
