IBM has announced that it is now letting customers move their IBM software licenses between on-premises, private and public clouds as much as they want in the latest step towards a cloud subscription-based IT world.

In a statement released today, the company said: “Clients can freely move monthly licenses between on-premises and public and private clouds as needed including on IBM SoftLayer and third party clouds.”


Of course, this should be the standard in today’s hybrid cloud world, and many other vendors already offer this kind of support.Obviously this method comes in stark contrast to the days of legacy IT, where software bought would traditionally be limited to operation on just that machine. But in 2015, with IT ever increasingly running on virtual machines and in the cloud, this approach just doesn’t work anymore.
