Infrastructure as a service

Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is a type of cloud computing that lets you allocate your compute, network, storage and security resources on demand. The IBM approach to IaaS lets you scale and shrink resources as needed around the world in more than 60 data centers.

Get access to the full stack of compute, down to the bare metal. Get more control. Customize hardware to your exact specifications to meet the precise demands of your workload.
