IBM has developed new cloud storage software that provides a simple interface for clients to dynamically migrate data across multiple clouds, while keeping it confidential and secure.
IBM’s addresses concerns about data resiliency, security and service continuity via a technique which seamlessly stores and moves data across multiple clouds. The method employs a “cloud-of-clouds” approach that invokes the resilience of separate clouds to offer stronger protection against service outages and data loss than any single cloud can deliver.
“Our cloud-of-clouds invention can help clients avoid service outages and security incidents that impact the reliability and security of individual clouds,” said IBM Fellow Evangelos Eleftheriou. “We are adding multiple levels of redundancy and reliability by making cloud migration and backup easier and faster than is currently possible.”
The technology was demonstrated in June at the IBM Edge 2013 conference in Las Vegas in conjunction with the IBM Storwize platform and is available for early trial testing.
