What are IBM Cloud services?

Services are the building blocks of web and mobile apps. A service is simply a cloud extension that is hosted by IBM Cloud. The service provides functionality that is ready for use by your app's running code.

IBM Cloud simplifies your use of services by provisioning new instances of the service and binding those service instances to your app. IBM Cloud handles the management of the service automatically, so you can focus on building outstanding web and mobile apps. For all available services in IBM Cloud, see the IBM Cloud catalog.
