Advanced, enterprise-ready IaaS
IBM infrastructure as a service (IaaS) delivers a range of security-rich, enterprise-class
cloud services. Based on open standards and enhanced by a large partner ecosystem,
IBM IaaS features advanced cloud management and integrated security built on decades
of IBM expertise.
IaaS for both born-on-the-cloud and born-on-the-enterprise workloads
We offer two IaaS environments: A self-service IaaS—with built-in PaaS—that is particularly suited for new born-on-the-cloud applications and agile development, and a fully managed IaaS optimized for securely running born-on-the-enterprise workloads (like SAP) on the cloud.
IBM SmartCloud Enterprise
An enterprise-class self-service public cloud IaaS with low costs and no licensing fees, SmartCloud Enterprise is particularly suited to economically scale enterprise IT infrastructure and to accelerate the development of new born-on-the-cloud applications.
SmartCloud Enterprise scales economically and meets the demands for agile. Suited for professional developers and enterprise IT, this public IaaS enables you to take advantage of IBM’s large ecosystem of cloud partners for the latest cloud innovations.
Built-in PaaS extends IBM IaaS capabilities
IBM SmartCloud Application Services is our platform as a service (PaaS) that runs on and deploys virtual resources to SmartCloud Enterprise. With a suite of application development tools, middleware and databases, IBM PaaS helps you develop new cloud apps fast, as well as migrate your legacy workloads to the cloud.
IBM SmartCloud Enterprise+
A fully managed, highly secure IaaS optimized for running born-on-the-enterprise production workloads (like SAP Applications) in the cloud, SmartCloud Enterprise+ offers SLAs up to 99.9% and many advantages of a private cloud—such as choice of dedicated servers and storage—while providing flexible scaling and beneficial cloud economics.
SmartCloud Enterprise+ is secured with multiple levels of isolation, fully managed 24/7 by IBM experts, and has been optimized for running business-critical production workloads in the cloud. Enterprise IT teams use it to manage and optimize virtualized environments and to extend their IT infrastructures to reach new opportunities in mobile, big data and analytics.
