IBM updates cloud strategy after CIA loss

Joab Jackson | July 15, 2014
Two years after losing high-profile government work to Amazon Web Services, IBM has revamped the way it structures enterprise cloud services contracts, thanks in part to its US$2 billion acquisition of cloud services provider SoftLayer.

In addition to the customer wins, IBM is also announcing a number of new cloud services.

The company launched Watson Engagement Advisor, a service that can help businesses in marketing, sales and customer service.

A high-speed transfer technology, called Aspera, provides a way to move large amounts of data across SoftLayer data centers. A new storage service, called Elastic Storage on Cloud, provides hosted storage.

The company has also issued new services for managing IBM services as well as an adapter, called JumpGate, for moving OpenStack workloads across different cloud providers.
