Standardized, best-practices-based facilities

Each IBM Cloud data center features one or more pods, supporting up to 5,000 servers. Space, power, network, personnel and internal infrastructure are optimized across all locations.

Redundant, best-in-class infrastructure

Built with industry-leading hardware and equipment, and outfitted with multiple power feeds, fiber links, dedicated generators and battery backup. Redundant n+1 power and cooling resources are regularly inspected to guarantee stability.

Better power, bandwidth, and server support

IBM Cloud servers feature high-bandwidth racks with ample power, simplified system deployment and faster issue resolution. Each rack has 40 Gbps of connectivity — 20 Gbps to the private network, 20 Gbps to the public network.

24/7 on-site security, rigorous controls

All locations are secured, with server-room access limited to certified employees. Controls are vetted by third-party auditors and detailed reports are provided for your own security.

IBM Cloud federal data centers

Cloud infrastructure built to government specs

When you’re a US government agency, your servers, data center facilities and networks must adhere to strict regulations. IBM Cloud provides cloud infrastructure and government compliance that meets these unique requirements.

  • Reserved for government workloads only
  • Built to meet FedRAMP and FISMA privacy and security standards
  • Connected to each other through an independent, high-speed private network

IBM Cloud public regions

Focus on your app, not the infrastructure hosting it

Develop your apps in a cloud without borders, then connect your dedicated services to the public services available on the IBM Cloud. Deploy your apps to different regions for latency or security consideration, with the option to deploy to one region or across multiple regions.

  • Build and extend web and mobile apps
  • Processing power to deliver continuous application changes
  • Fit-for-purpose programming models and services
  • Manageability of services and apps
  • Optimized and elastic workloads
