On-premises, storage-as-a-service solutions can provide a necessary and transformational option for IT leaders.

To boost the value of their cloud investment, enterprises are looking for ways to reduce operational expense and gain the flexibility to address growing infrastructure needs

With cloud hosting services from IBM, you can manage self-provided equipment or have IBM manage IBM-provided equipment on an enterprise-grade, scalable and security-rich hybrid cloud platform. From fully managed applications to customer-managed infrastructure deployed on shared or dedicated infrastructure, you define the options, pricing and service model for each application.

Between capacity constraints and unpredictable pricing models, the public cloud isn’t suited for all workloads or data sets. IBM Cloud Private offers the benefits of a pay-per-use operating expense model with a managed, dedicated storage cloud.
