Who is Cloud Services?

Proven Expertise

Lab Services offers end-to-end capabilities to help clients gain the agility, flexibility, and efficiency benefits of enterprise-wide cloud computing. Our range of services includes formulating cloud strategic plans, defining the right balance between cloud delivery models, translating this into the relevant multiplatform architectures, and implementing the necessary server and storage infrastructure.

Our Services

Systems Consulting

We help organizations define their enterprise cloud transformation strategies and represent these as multiplatform cloud architectures, reflecting the optimal delivery model, workload placement, and management environment. We offer a flexible and adaptable approach that includes reviewing current IT infrastructure and workloads, assessing cloud readiness across multiple IT domains, and designing a detailed roadmap to achieve a future state hybrid cloud environment.

Power Systems

We help businesses design and build hybrid cloud infrastructure based on a foundation of PowerVM or KVM virtualization. We help clients implement PowerVC as a foundation for OpenStack-based private cloud management services for Power Systems, storage, and networking. We also provide services for integrating with cloud management and orchestration platforms.

Storage and Software Defined Infrastructure

We help clients migrate data from a traditional IT environment to the cloud environment, or build data disaster recovery architecture between hybrid clouds (or hybrid cloud and traditional IT environment). We bring our vast experience and industry knowledge to help you make policy decisions on archive, scale-out storage, object storage, and on and off premise options, using the IBM Spectrum family including IBM Spectrum Scale, IBM Spectrum Accelerate, and IBM Cloud Object Storage.

IBM Z and LinuxONE

We help clients design and deploy a hybrid cloud infrastructure for enterprise transactions, systems of records, and application workloads. We help deploy OpenStack-based cloud management services for IBM Z, LinuxONE, storage, and networking. We also provide services for z/OS Cloud provisioning and management with API-enabling technology such as z/OS Connect and z/OSMF. We provide services for integrating with cloud management platforms, such as VMWare vRealize Automation, IBM Cloud Management Appliance, and IBM Wave. We help clients scale and secure their IT infrastructure for mobile applications with their often very large and unpredictable transaction volumes via our Jumpstart services. We also provide the needed operating system, middleware, and support for security to provide a full end-to-end mobile solution.
