How it works

Pay only for what you need and what you deploy

Use one integration capability or work with the entire collection. It's a fully modular and easy-to-consume pricing approach, so you pay for only what you need to use.

Reuse existing investments

IBM Cloud Pak® for Integration capabilities can be run on any infrastructure. Try one of our trade-up programs for a potentially lower total cost of ownership. You also get simplified billing, reporting and management.

The portability to deploy virtually anywhere, anytime

Capabilities from IBM Cloud Pak for Integration run on premises, on private and public clouds, in pre-integrated systems, can be deployed as a service on IBM Cloud, and work wherever Red Hat® OpenShift® runs.

Activate components as needed

Use only the capabilities you need, when you need them, with a fully modular approach that's designed to be easy to consume, no matter where and how you use the capabilities.

Simple pay-by-use billing

Easily purchase IBM Cloud Pak capabilities through a simpler virtual processor core (VPC) metric. A VPC is a unit of measurement that is used to determine the licensing cost of deploying certain IBM products. It's based on the number of virtual cores per unit (vCPUs) that are available to the product.

For 1 VPC of this IBM Cloud Pak offering, you can use 1 VPC of API lifecycle management, 1/3 VPC of application and data integration, 2 to 4 VPCs of enterprise messaging, 1 VPC of event streaming, and 1 VPC of secure gateway. Four VPCs of this IBM Cloud Pak offering allow you to use 1 Gbps of high-speed data transfer.
