Learn how to deploy a 3-tier web app on IBM Cloud Virtual Servers for VPC
Logical isolation. Quick provisioning. High network performance.
IBM Cloud® Virtual Server for VPC offers fast-provisioning compute capacity with the highest network speeds and most secure, software-defined networking resources available on the IBM Cloud. Built on IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and featuring powerful, 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® processors, this developer-friendly infrastructure helps drive modern workloads faster and easier with pre-set instance profiles, rapid deployment and private network control in an agile public cloud environment. Choose multi-tenant or dedicated, add GPUs, and pay-as-you-use by the hour.
How it’s used
Three-tier web applications
Three-tier web applications
Build precisely for high-traffic and dense caching server requirements. Distribute globally in public or dedicated scenarios with various load balancing options.
Application scale and availability is essential. Build and dynamically add or remove virtual server instance groups with auto scale templates and server pool control.
The IBM Cloud® VPC difference
Build a secure space in the public cloud. Accelerate high-production workloads with faster networking performance and deploy globally across multizone regions.
Frequently asked questions
IBM Cloud VPC explained
How does IBM Cloud Virtual Server for VPC work?
With IBM Cloud Virtual Server for VPC, you use the UI, CLI or API to quickly provision virtual compute capacity, also known as virtual server instances or virtual machines (VM). Your infrastructure is IBM Cloud VPC, which contains a number of storage, networking and security resources. All of this functions as your own virtual private cloud inside the availability and scalability of the IBM public cloud.
What is IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers for VPC?
IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers for VPC is a software-defined private cloud, where users can deploy to multizone regions in 10 minutes or less.
What are the benefits of choosing virtual servers on IBM Cloud VPC?
IBM Cloud Virtual Server for VPC lets you provision virtual servers across an infrastructure with the security of a private cloud and the agility of a public cloud. Your workloads and applications are logically isolated from other networks, and you can quickly provision resources with maximum scale and flexibility.
What are the network differences between virtual servers on IBM Cloud VPC and other IBM Cloud Virtual Server offerings?
IBM Cloud Virtual Server on our classic infrastructure operates on native subnet and virtual LAN (VLAN) networking to communicate within a data center and single pod. IBM Cloud Virtual Server for VPC operates with an additional network orchestration layer that eliminates the pod boundary, creating increased capacity for scaling instances.
What are my deployment options on IBM Cloud Virtual Server for VPC?
You can deploy multi-tenant virtual servers based on your workload profile requirements. Or you can deploy single-tenant dedicated hosts to carve out compute capacity for specific security permissions and workload purposes.
