What is IBM Cloud Dedicated?

IBM Cloud Dedicated is a single-tenant cloud platform for building, running and managing your cloud applications. With IBM Cloud Dedicated, you get the power and simplicity of IBM Cloud — in your own isolated IBM Cloud infrastructure environment that is securely connected to both the IBM Cloud public environment and your own network. IBM Cloud Dedicated comes with the same set of Cloud Foundry runtimes available in IBM Cloud public and includes 64 GB of application memory that can be scaled higher in increments of 16 GB as needed.
