The IBM Cloud Computing Reference Architecture (CCRA) is a blueprint to guide IBM development teams and field practitioners in the design of public and private clouds. It has been created from the collective experiences of hundreds of cloud client engagements and implementation of IBM-hosted clouds.

A Reference Architecture (RA) provides a blueprint of a 'to-be' model with a well defined scope, requirements it satisfies and the architectural decisions it realizes. It includes prescriptive architecture and product recommendations in the form of cloud adoption patterns. By delivering best practices in a standardized, methodical way, an RA ensures globally consistent delivery and high quality project results.
