Give one of our virtual or bare metal servers a try and save big

Share this post:

We’re excited to announce 50 percent off our list price for 60 days on selected virtual server and bare metal server offerings. This is your chance to try 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. They’re perfect for driving today’s HPC and cognitive/analytics workloads to new performance levels.

With Intel Xeon technology, applications run up to 63 percent faster than previous generation processors. According to Intel, the new processor technology accelerates 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.

The time is now. Take IBM Cloud virtual and bare metal servers out for a spin today. Run your latest dev/test workload or migrate an old, poorly performing production workload over to the latest high performance bare metal server.

But wait—there’s more.

We’ve also added the full line of NVIDIA GPUs and Intel Optane™ SSD to the promotion mix.  NVIDIA K80, P100, and V100 all deliver the computational horsepower needed for complex data analytics and scientific computing applications, while NVIDIA M60 delivers the industry’s highest performance for virtualized workstations, desktops, and applications. 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 with no additional charges to our customers.
