Get a glimpse into the future of our network infrastructure with three new capabilities
If you’re an application developer or a DevOps professional, chances are you want your apps up and running right away. Moreover, you don’t want to be burdened with the time and complexity involved in setting up the underlying network and security. This is why IBM Cloud is an essential choice for building your applications.
Our network infrastructure services offered on IBM Cloud are another example of how we’re making use of cloud native services to deliver a significantly improved user experience. As part of an overall initiative to build out state-of-the-art “as-a-Service” capabilities, we recently delivered significant new enhancements to our network services portfolio, including:
IBM Cloud Security Groups for instance-level firewall protection
IBM Cloud Load Balancer for intelligent traffic distribution across application servers
IBM Cloud Content Delivery Network (CDN), powered by Akamai, for efficient delivery of requested content to over 200,000 cached edge servers to end users around the globe
These new capabilities provide a glimpse into the future of our network infrastructure. We’re embracing new, cloud-native network services in addition to our traditional appliance-centric model. Our latest network as-a-service offerings—security groups, load balancer, and CDN—are simple to configure, easy to manage. They deliver high security, resiliency, and performance—with worldwide availability across our global private network backbone.
We know some organizations prefer appliances in their cloud environment for absolute control and compliance needs. We’re also adding the FortiGate Security Appliance 10Gbps to our line-up, IBM’s physical, next-generation, enterprise-class firewall. This security device provides a reliable, powerful, and consolidated way to manage and control your network, with high throughput capacity of up to 10Gbps.
Our new network infrastructure services put the power of IBM Cloud in your hands. You can now set up a new web or mobile application in a matter of few clicks.
