IBM is expanding its cloud services with the acquisition of cloud-based video streaming provider Ustream.
IBM has added a cloud video service unit to its cloud portfolio that will offer open API development, digital and visual analytics, and simplified management. IBM created the unit to meet enterprise needs for a secure and scalable cloud-based platform to manage their video services. The new cloud video service will combine technology from Ustream and from multiscreen video service provider Clearleap, which IBM acquired in December.
