CloudBurst (IBM CloudBurst)
CloudBurst is a “ready-to-go” solution from IBM that’s designed to provide resource monitoring, cost management and services availability in a cloud. IBM CloudBurst is a key component in the company’s lineup of cloud computing solutions, which also includes IBM Smart Business Storage Cloud, IBM Smart Desktop Cloud and IBMSmartCloud Enterprise.
CloudBurst can also refer to IBM’s WebSphere CloudBurst Appliance, a hardware appliance designed to speed application creation and deployment to cloud and virtualization environments. The CloudBurst appliance provides access to IBM middleware virtual images and patterns to facilitate cloud deployment, and can be securely deployed and managed in a private cloud. IBM recently rebranded the CloudBurst Appliance as IBM Workload Deployer.
