In a rapidly evolving cloud-oriented world, it is essential that you deliver software as a service offerings both efficiently and reliably in order to be successful.
Traditional on-premise solutions have grown into monoliths that are difficult to maintain and scale. Organic growth issues with these solutions challenge organisations to investigate alternatives such as hybrid cloud or cloud-based offerings. This migration results in greater cost effectiveness by significantly reducing maintenance, dedicating focus to their core business.
Customer demand for cloud delivered capabilities is driving a transition of the IBM Security division. Using OpenStack Heat and minimal modifications to a single-tenanted security inspection appliance code base, we were able to create a scalable and flexible architecture with multi-tenancy support and global scalability.
Attendees will be guided along the journey IBM Security took to evolve a single-tenant security inspection appliance to suit a multi-tenanted cloud environment. This talk will demonstrate to listeners how OpenStack Heat can be used for their own solution migration and enhancement goals, and how the same pattern has been used for the path to cloud for other IBM Security appliances.
