What is cloud hosting?

A network of servers that act as one

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

Cloud hosting benefits

Cloud hosting solutions

Consider the following criteria when selecting a cloud hosting solution.

Dedicated hosting

Dedicated hosting offers single-tenant physical servers for workloads that prioritize raw hardware, performance and isolation.

Virtual private server (VPS) hosting

VPS hosting offers single-tenant or multitenant servers for workloads that demand maximum flexibility and scalability and that use cloud hosting.

Bare metal servers

Bare metal servers provide the raw horsepower needed for processor-intensive and disk I/O–intensive workloads.

Cloud hosting key features

Network-based power

Get faster performance, easier load balancing between multiple server environments, and safety from server hardware issues with cloud hosting on the IBM Cloud network .

Global availability

Meet your customers where they need you. Cloud hosting enables you to deploy, control and manage workloads in more than 60 data centers and six multizone regions with availability zones.

Varied pricing options

Choose multitenant or dedicated virtual servers, multitenant transient virtual servers for on-demand cloud hosting capacity at lower prices, or reserved virtual servers for guaranteed capacity.

Featured dedicated server data centers

Servers dedicated to specific individual physical computers, storage systems and networking hardware components.
