What is cloud hosting?

A network of servers that act as one

IBM Cloud® hosting services provide a network of connected virtual and physical cloud servers to host your applications, solutions and websites. Unlike traditional hosting on a single server, IBM Cloud hosting offers a much broader cache of IT resources to ensure your mission-critical solutions are more available, more reliable and more scalable.
