In today’s engineering environments, it’s increasingly complex to deploy and maintain the right mix of development software for globally distributed teams. The planning, installation, configuration and maintenance processes can all get easily derailed. Plus, users can be slow or unwilling to adopt the “approved” software technologies. As a result, organizations can end up struggling to realize the business benefits they desire from their software investments.
So why not just deploy software on the cloud—and gain the cloud advantages of fast setup, low infrastructure costs, high availability and rapid scalability? Soft
IBM offers a range of managed cloud solutions that provide a fast way to use IBM software, configured to customer specifications and deployed within a managed virtual private cloud environment. The solutions are hosted by IBM within a secure SoftLayer data center, providing high availability and scaling up to support thousands of users. What’s more, the services come with a brin
IBM delivers customized solutions in a secure cloud environment, without additional setup and IT maintenance costs. IBM experts provide end-to-end managed services, overseeing software configuration and implementation, as well as ongoing maintenance, disaster recovery and technical support. An IBM Customer Success Management team works with clients to help ensure success at every stage of the engagement. With add-on services, customers can also integrate with other IBM or third-party tools.
IBM managed cloud solutions are hosted within a secure SoftLayer data center, with secure access provided through a client’s own intranet. Users can access the environment, for example, through their own site-to-site virtual private network (VPN) connection, meeting their organization’s specific network security and compliance requirements. The solutions can be configured to support Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Payment Card Industry (PCI), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) standards.
What’s more, each client’s specific software solution is provisioned within a single-tenant, virtual private cloud architecture. For added security, the VPN configuration helps ensure privacy at the application, server, database and network layers.
Thanks to IBM expertise, organizations are saving significant time in the planning, the provisioning of hardware, and the install and configuration phases of software deployment. In fact, the entire process can typically be reduced from several months to just two to four weeks.
