Application Programming Interface (API)

Application programming interfaces, or APIs, simplify software development and innovation by enabling applications to exchange data and functionality easily and securely.


Cloud Computing

Cloud computing transforms IT infrastructure into a utility: It lets you ‘plug into' infrastructure via the internet, and use computing resources without installing and maintaining them on-premises.



A governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) framework helps an organization align its information technology with business objectives, while managing risk and meeting regulatory compliance requirements.


Private Cloud

Private cloud is a cloud computing environment dedicated to a single customer. It combines many of the benefits of cloud computing with the security and control of on-premises IT infrastructure.


Public Cloud

Learn what a public cloud is and what it offers compared to—or together with—private cloud and hybrid cloud computing models.


Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)

This guide explores how virtual private clouds work and discusses the features and benefits of this emerging offering that provides public cloud tenants a private cloud-like experience.


PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service)

An introduction to PaaS, a cloud-based computing model that allows development teams to build, test, deploy, manage, update, and scale applications faster and more cost-effectively.



Microservices architecture is an approach in which a single application is composed of many loosely coupled and independently deployable smaller services.


Hybrid Cloud

Hybrid cloud combines and unifies public cloud and private cloud services from multiple cloud vendors to create a single, flexible, cost-optimal IT infrastructure.
