New virtual server configurations for all your enterprise workloads

Share this post:

Greater choice and flexibility, that’s what you need in your cloud infrastructure in today’s digital era of high-intensive workloads/applications. Today, we’re excited to announce the availability of three new memory optimized public virtual server configurations, which will provide greater choices for our customers to better match their memory-intensive workloads, such as in-memory database, caching, or graphics processing.

Virtual servers offer customers who want a fast, flexible and low cost cloud server solution that can be quickly provisioned.  This makes virtual servers perfect for Dev/Test, Backup and DR workloads, and less expensive for shorter term deployments — say a month or two.

The new larger configurations we’re introducing are great for enterprises that are moving workloads to the cloud and need a fast and flexible infrastructure that is quick and easy to provision – no matter how heavy the workload.

The following memory optimized configurations round out IBM Cloud’s public virtual server offering:

Server Size Starting Hourly Price Starting Monthly Price
48 Cores X 384 GB RAM $3.115 $2,065.84
56 Cores X 448 GB RAM $3.636 $2,410.25
64 Cores X 512 GB RAM $4.150 $2,754.58

For customers looking for even lower prices, these servers are available at transient hourly prices as well.

In addition, customers can also choose from a variety of balanced public virtual servers which offer a blend of performance and scale – perfect for large database workloads requiring high / low latency I/O performance.  As well as compute optimized public virtual servers which are well suited for CPU intensive workloads.
