Deploy locally and scale globally to maximize choice and control

Deploy workloads in over 60 data centers, and now into 6 regions and 18 availability zones globally. Built to meet your needs for local access, low latency and certified security, IBM Cloud offers the most choice to decide where and how your data and workloads should run. Our availability zone design provides an easier and more effective way to design and operate applications and databases, making them highly available, fault tolerant and scalable.

Better power, bandwidth and performance

IBM Cloud servers see high bandwidth and low latency due to availability zone connectivity and data replication across availability zones in the regional network. And run on IBM Cloud bare metal for single tenancy’s high-performance benefit.

Security icon

24/7 on-site security, with 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.
