Big Blue is bullish on the Cloudant buy because it gives IBM a universal data layer that bolsters its burgeoning cloud portfolio. IBM expects Cloudant to strengthen its cloud solutions by providing developers with the tools and resources to build, test, deploy and scale cloud apps on a variety of hosting layers.

The SoftLayer Connection

Increasingly, developers have embraced NoSQL databases because of their flexibility, and JSON has become the predominant NoSQL database technology for mobile and Web app developers. Cloudant technology ensures that app developers no longer need to be experts in database management, while database administrators can focus on higher value tasks beyond day-to-day administration.

Cloudant is already an integral to IBM's MobileFirst solutions. IBM said it enables developers who use Worklight, its mobile app development software, to quickly create flexible, reliable and scalable apps that include a variety of structured and unstructured data. But Big Blue expects Cloudant to strengthen its cloud solutions by providing developers with the tools and resources to build, test, deploy and scale cloud apps on a variety of hosting layers. Cloudant runs on the IBM SoftLayer platform today and extends IBM’s recent investment in the SoftLayer cloud infrastructure.

"Cloudant’s decision to join IBM highlights that the next wave of enterprise technology innovation has moved beyond infrastructure and is now happening at the data layer," said Cloudant CEO Derek Schoettle. "Our relationship with IBM and SoftLayer has evolved significantly in recent years, with more connected devices generating data at an unprecedented rate. Cloudant's NoSQL expertise, combined with IBM’s enterprise reliability and resources, adds data layer services to the IBM portfolio that others can’t match."
