"Flex is the only service available from a major cloud vendor with simplified pricing for clients whose data usage patterns are hard to predict", the company said in a news release. "Now, customers who don't have in-house expertise to manage an OpenStack infrastructure can more confidently consume Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Red Hat Ceph Storage on IBM Private Cloud".

The changes, announced at IBM Interconnect in Las Vegas, are implemented via IBM's new Cloud Storage Object Flex structure, which offers a pay-as-you-go facility that it claims could undercut AWS S3 IA by 53%, and Azure GRS Cool Tier by up to 75%.

"Companies are rapidly choosing to blend their existing infrastructure within multiple cloud environments, creating a hybrid cloud framework that continues to provide them with the speed and control they require to optimize their enterprise", said Arvind Krishna, Senior Vice President, Hybrid Cloud and Director of IBM Research.

The collaboration will see IBM become a certified provider of Red Hat's cloud products and services, allowing for Red Hat's OpenStack Platform and is Ceph Storage services to be run on the IBM Private Cloud.

Interconnect is releasing a storm of IBM news, including a collaboration with Red Hat to accelerate Hybrid Cloud Adoption via OpenStack, a further cloud data management collaboration with Veritas, new functionality in IBM Watson's Discovery capabilities and an AI-driven gaming analytics initiative with PlayFab.
