IBM Multi Cloud Project

Multi Cloud Project

Transformative multi-cloud capabilities, built on IBM Multicloud Manager and Red Hat OpenShift

Multi-cloud is cloud computing at its most capable and agile. It is the combination of two or more clouds from different cloud providers, combining any mix of Infrastructure, Platform, or Software as a Service (IaaS, PaaS, or SaaS). Multi-cloud users are therefore afforded complete freedom of choice in creating the optimal cloud setup for their needs.

Compared with hybrid cloud, multi-cloud addresses the strategic opportunity of utilising multiple cloud infrastructures and applications to best fit business and operational demands.

The Tech Data Multi Cloud Project takes multi-cloud one step further, by delivering automated deployment and remediation tools, along with complete oversight of a users’ multi-cloud platforms, through a single console.

An award-winning multi-cloud foundation1

Tech Data Multi Cloud utilises IBM Multicloud Manager, itself running on Red Had OpenShift, to create an on-premise or cloud-based hosted software solution for customers to manage their operations, workloads, and clusters across multiple cloud environments.

Crucially, IBM Multicloud Manager enables significant automation of cloud management processes and deployments. As a result, your customers are able to reduce the time spent on repetitive, everyday tasks, and focus their attention on other, related IT projects that will further accelerate their businesses.

Easily integrated with the existing tools your customers use, our IBM Multicloud Manager sandbox not only allows you to learn, test, and develop on the platform, but also creates opportunities to innovate with IBM Cloud, develop on OpenShift, and create new business offerings - all supported by Tech Data and vendor technical resources.
