After the new offerings around the Dynamic Infrastructure announcement this week (see my earlier blog on this topic), several folks have asked specifically about the Cloud-related Storage solutions IBM offers.
In case you missed it, IBM made a major announcement around Cloud and Storage earlier this month. The focus was on new IBM "Smart Business Systems" that can be used on-premises for private-cloud configurations or by Cloud Computing companies who want to offer IT as a service. IBM Information Archive was the first solution to be announced in this area. IBM Storage expert Tony Pearson provided a couple blogs on this topic:
A "private cloud" implementation for PACS medical images is IBM Grid Medical Archive Solution (GMAS). Doctors, Radiologists, and other medical professionals can access these images over the intranet between multiple locations, such as hospitals and clinics. Spectrum Health, the largest healthcare system in Western Michigan, discusses their experience with this solution.

Also, see the IBM Storage and Cloud Website for more Cloud-related storage offerings.

Yesterday, IBM announced new offerings for helping clients build dynamic infrastructures to "address today's challenges to improve service, reduce cost and manage risk, while also laying the foundation to take advantage of future business and IT opportunities."
The announcements focused on three key areas:
A replay of the Webcast covering these announcements is available in case you missed it.

Cloud technologies and solutions were a key part of the Dynamic Infrastructure announcements that covered such things as integrated systems design with private cloud deployments, virtual system pools and management, and next-generation virtualized storage and security technologies.
Here are just a few of the Cloud-related offerings:
My favorite part the day's activities, of course, was that IBM used Twitter for a question and answer session immediately following the Webcast by using the #dyninfra hashtag. Lots of great interaction and participation by the public and IBM experts and Business Partners.
You can continue online conversation and sharing around Dynamic Infrastructure and Cloud via any of these venues:
