As organizations big and small race to the cloud, there is still a need for on-premise integration for security and access control. That’s where the hybrid cloud idea fits in, blending both public and private assets in an effort to help enterprises get the benefits of both worlds.
IBM (NYSE:IBM) is advancing the idea of the hybrid cloud with its WebSphere Cast Iron technology. For IBM the hybrid cloud is all about integrating the off-premise cloud with on-premise policy.
“Websphere Cast Iron provides a simple way to integrate off premise Software-as-a-Service applications with your on-premise applications,” Dave Lindquist, IBM Fellow and CTO of IBM Tivoli Software told InternetNews.com.
