Share this post:

IBM is excited to announce 50% off list price for 60 days on selected virtual server and bare metal server offerings.  This is your chance to try out a wide variety of IBM Cloud infrastructure offerings – from our fast, flexible and easily provisioned virtual servers to our high performance, totally customizable bare metal servers running Intel®’s Xeon® Scalable processors – perfect for driving today’s HPC and cognitive / analytics workloads to new performance levels.

With Intel Xeon technology, applications run up to 63% faster than previous generation processors.  According to Intel, the new processor technology can accelerate insights up to 2.3 times faster for financial services workloads, up to 1.5 times faster for manufacturing workloads and up to 1.7 times faster for life sciences workloads.

Take IBM Cloud virtual and bare metal servers out for a spin today – run your latest dev/test workload, or migrate an old, poor performing production workload over to the latest high performance bare metal server.

In addition, IBM Cloud has added its full line of NVIDIA® GPU’s as well as its Intel Optane™ SSD to the promotion mix.  The NVIDIA® Tesla® K80, P100 and V100 all deliver the computational horsepower needed for complex data analytics and scientific computing applications, while the NVIDIA® Tesla® M60 delivers higher performance for virtualized workstations, desktops, and applications.  In addition, the Intel® Optane™ SSD DC 4800X offers a premium, non-volatile memory media with an industry-leading combination of high throughput, low latency, high QoS and ultra-high endurance.

And only IBM offers a global private network that’s no charge to our customers.
