Google Close to Launching IBM i Cloud Service, Will Says  by Alex Woodie

The lack of a public cloud service for Power applications has long been an issue for many in the IBM i world. Both Linux and Windows have the ability to run their workloads on multiple different public clouds, but the IBM i community is limited to "private clouds." Hopefully, that will be changing soon. According to IBM i chief architect Steve Will, the wait may be over.

There is no official word from Google or IBM, but Will did speak openly about the continued relationship that the two companies have at this year's COMMON PowerUp conference in San Antonio, Texas. During the Future of IBM, i panel Will said, "was on the doorstep" of offering an IBM i service and that everyone should keep an eye out for an announcement.

Although this would be headline news if/when it happens, it wouldn't be a surprise. IBM and Google have been working together since 2014 when Google started using Power8 processors in its public cloud offering. The two have also been working closely through the OpenPower Foundation and through this close partnership many have speculated that Google would eventually run the IBM i operating system and IBM i workloads, giving the possibility of using a public cloud system.
