Cloud is a computing model providing web-based software, middleware and computing resources on demand. Deploying technology in the cloud prevents you from paying for idle computing resources. In addition, Cloud computing allows your users to access the latest software and infrastructure offerings to foster business innovation.
Cloud computing provides a dynamic infrastructure that makes applications and computing power available on demand. It is highly optimized to achieve more with less, using virtualization, standardization and automation. Cloud computing helps companies become more agile and responsive while significantly reducing IT costs and complexity through improved workload optimization and service delivery.
IBM and Oracle solutions capitalize on the comprehensive IBM portfolio of cloud computing offerings to provide integrated and seamless management across architectures and delivery models. Designed for enterprise-class customers, the IBM cloud computing portfolio offers:
