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
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.
