IBM Cloud™ Private is a scalable cloud platform that runs on users’ infrastructure. It’s built on open source frameworks, like containers, Kubernetes, and Cloud Foundry. In addition, it offers common services for self-service deployment, monitoring, logging and security, and a portfolio of middleware, data and analytics.
Key Features and Benefits
Helps ensure security for data in transit and data at rest across all platform services. All services expose network endpoints via TLS and encrypt data at rest.
Kubernetes container orchestration
Brings orchestration primitives to support, enabling users to run Kubernetes containers in production.
Private Docker image registry
Integrates with the Docker registry V2 API to provide a local registry service that functions similarly to the cloud-based registry service Docker Hub.
A unified installer
Uses an Ansible-based installer to rapidly set up a Kubernetes-based cluster that contains master, worker, proxy, and optional management and Vulnerability Advisor nodes.
Provides recommendations for users’ cloud journeys by turning information about their environments and applications into insights.
Monitoring and alerts
Configures Prometheus collectors for custom metrics. Custom metrics help provide insights and building blocks for customer alerts and dashboards.
