For security, privacy, or performance reasons, many enterprises need their own cloud environment. With Bluemix Dedicated you can have your own cloud, with physically isolated hardware, ready as soon as you are.
Feels like home
Bluemix Dedicated is designed to feel like another node on your network. Using either VPN or Direct Link technology, your Bluemix environment is securely connected to your enterprise.
Apps and data where you need them
Bluemix Dedicated is available in over 25 IBM Cloud data centers around the world. That means you can keep your data in country and put your compute and services where they best serve your users.
Dedicated to you
Bluemix Dedicated provides physically isolated hardware in an IBM data center. Single-tenant and provisioned on a combination of bare metal and virtual machines, your Bluemix environment is created just for you. With the syndicated catalog, you can power your apps and services with a combination of dedicated compute and services, as well as services from the public Bluemix catalog.
Bluemix Dedicated is priced based on the amount of allocated capacity in your environment. We enable you to start small, with the amount of compute that makes sense for your organization. As you grow, adding capacity is easy. Every service available in dedicated is also available in public, so you can test and validate services before you make the investment to bring them into your dedicated environment.
Bluemix Dedicated is available in more than 25 IBM Cloud data centers around the world and that number is constantly increasing. This reach provides your IT teams with the flexibility to optimize the location of your apps and data based on performance and regulatory considerations.
IBM provides multiple mechanisms to securely connect Bluemix Dedicated with your data center. With VPN, we create encrypted tunnels over the public internet, a connection that addresses many common use cases associated with access and data transfer. For the most demanding workloads, we also offer Direct Link. Direct Link offers secure, high-performance connectivity that leverages partners to provide network communication that never goes over the public internet.
Boost productivity with Bluemix Dedicated and the first ever GitHub Enterprise offered as a cloud-hosted, managed service. Bluemix manages things like infrastructure provisioning and scaling, health monitoring and fail-over setup, upgrades, security monitoring, and automated backups.
Hybrid deployments connect your dedicated cloud to public and local environments
The admin console puts your team in control. Collaborate with the Bluemix team on updates and platform health, and focus your time onboarding users, managing your catalog, deep-diving on problem resolution, and facilitating connectivity with existing systems.
The Bluemix catalog is the single palette your developers can use to construct and extend apps and services. It brings together approved services across your public, dedicated, and local deployments. You can even publish and manage access to your own services through the Bluemix catalog.
