International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) is rendering Bluemix Local as the ultimate solution for enterprises to easily deploy apps across data centers and in the cloud. In the target market, Bluemix Local will battle for customer attention against Pivotal’s PivotalCF. IBM’s Bluemix Local is now widely available for business customers who need it.

International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) has figured out how to help enterprise customers overcome some of the most pressing cloud deployment challenges. The company is making it easy through Bluemix Local for customers to create apps once and roll it out on their own data centers and clouds. One of the advantages of Bluemix Local is that it is flexible and also promises regulatory compliance.

IBM will handle the workloads around the deployment of apps through its Bluemix Local platform.

Although cloud comes with benefits that businesses cannot resist, there have always been question about regulatory compliance and security when creating and rolling apps. IBM is stepping in to tell businesses that they can worry about how to increase revenue and profits and leave the app deployment heavy lifting to it.

IBM is touting its Bluemix Local as a portability solution given the simplified deployment of apps on-premise and in the cloud.

IBM’s Bluemix Local runs on multiple platforms, which means that the company hopes to capture many enterprise customers regardless of the platforms they use in their data centers.

Bluemix could beat competition

According to Forrester Research’s John Rymer, Bluemix Local could give PivotalCF, from Pivotal, a serious run for its money. Pivotal is an offshoot from EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC) and VMware, Inc. (NYSE:VMW), Rymer noted that awareness about Pivotal is weak and IBM could easily capitalize on that by leveraging its strong brand recognition. In particular, many large customers are more likely to settle for IBM than a little-known competitor such as Pivotal.

International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) has invested about $1 billion in Bluemix, which runs on top of SoftLayer. IBM paid $2 billion to bring SoftLayer under its wing.
