IBM has launched the latest effort to bring the nature of the cloud to the on-premises data center with Cloud Private for Data. It’s an integrated data science, engineering and development platform designed to help companies gain insights from data sources such IoT, online commerce, and mobile data.
Cloud Private for Data builds on IBM Cloud Private, a private cloud platform IBM introduced in November that brought Kubernetes into the data center. Cloud Private for Data expands on that greatly, adding IBM Streams for data ingestion, IBM Data Science Experience, Information Analyzer, Information Governance Catalogue, Data Stage, Db2, and Db2 Warehouse. All run on the Kubernetes platform, allowing services to be deployed “in minutes,” IBM claimed, and to scale up or down automatically as needed.
