Hybrid cloud gives you the best of public and private
clouds. They can help you realize the benefits of the
third platform, which is built on:
Cloud | Big Data | Mobility | Social

Every company is unique. And even their
individual needs can change in an instant based
on business opportunities. That’s why most
companies are looking towards the hybrid cloud.

Three common hybrid
cloud use cases.
The three most common hybrid cloud use cases are:
• Workload Rebalancing
, with POWER8 processor-based technology are specially
designed to support your workloads across these use cases.

Hybrid cloud allows you to rapidly and securely integrate
systems of engagement with back-end systems of record
across cloud environments — helping you innovate while

If you want your customers to be
able to use your mobile apps to make
purchases, you’ll need the ability to
quickly access customer and product
information from traditional IT systems.
This requires real-time responses.
POWER8 offers the improved I/O
and memory bandwidth to help the
integration between cloud and on
premise systems handle your needs.

Different workloads have different
requirements when it comes
to security, speed, energy and
storage. For example, gaming or
big data analytics can take up
a lot of system capacity. While
development workloads are suited
for the economics of a public
cloud. Long-term operation of an
application will often be brought
to a private cloud or datacenter.

SoftLayer® services can
help increase the ﬂexibility
and scalability of the
platform to help support
placement of workloads on
x86 or POWER8 based on
requirements or preferences.

Open Source Docker for IBM Power Systems enables
you to build once and port across public and private
clouds—providing workload optimization.
