IBM to Deliver Cloud Computing Software with Amazon

"Pay-as-you-go" model provides access to development and production instances of IBM in Amazon EC2 environment

IBM has announced a new agreement with Amazon Web Services, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, to deliver IBM's software to clients and developers.  The new "pay-as-you-go" model provides clients with access to development and production instances of IBM DB2, Informix Dynamic Server, WebSphere Portal, Lotus Web Content Management, WebSphere sMash and Novell's SUSE Linux operating system software in the Amazon EC2 environment.

Effective immediately, IBM is making available new Amazon Machine Images at no charge for development and test purposes, enabling software developers to quickly build pre-production applications based on IBM software within Amazon EC2. The new portfolio will over time extend to include Service Management capabilities from IBM Tivoli software for Amazon EC2 to help clients better control and automate their dynamic infrastructures in the cloud.

The IBM software images for full production running in Amazon EC2 will be launched in beta in the coming months, with pricing to be announced. All developers and customers will have the operational capability to run development and production instances of IBM software for an hourly price per instance.

Additionally, customers will also be able to run their already-purchased IBM software on Amazon EC2.

The new development AMIs can be accessed by visiting the new IBM Cloud Space on developerWorks at www.ibm.com/developerworks/spaces/cloud or the IBM section of the Featured Partners page at http://aws.amazon.com/solutions/featured-partners/.

Dynatrace is an application performance management software company with products for the information technology departments and digital business owners of medium and large businesses. Building the Future of Monitoring with Artificial Intelligence Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like "How is my application doing" but no idea how to get a proper answer.
