Simplified provisioning with predefined flavors: Introducing public virtual server families

Share this post:

Our public virtual server offering now comes in four distinct virtual server families: balanced, balanced local storage, compute, and memory. With this enhancement, IBM continues its effort to provide you with a first-class public cloud experience by taking the guesswork out of provisioning the right instance flavor for your workload needs.

What’s changed?

We’re making it that much easier for you to provision a public virtual server by bundling core and RAM (and storage in the case of Balanced Local Storage) together into predefined flavors. You can choose the flavor that best addresses your specific needs while also realizing new cost savings through reduced pricing.

In addition to these four families, we have several more public virtual server families on the horizon that will meet your requirements as they change.

What does this mean for you?

  • Our ordering experience has gotten that much easier
  • You will realize new cost savings when ordering a public virtual server
  • You can better match your specific need to one of our public virtual server flavors
  • For clients seeking a specific configuration not found in our flavor selections, try dedicated virtual servers (they allow custom configurations)

Although our public virtual servers have changed, everything else you’ve come to know and love about IBM Cloud will remain the sameand will continue to be available in our vast global footprint.
