Overview

IBM® MQ on Cloud is the gold standard for enterprise messaging, providing security-rich and reliable messaging on premises and across multiple clouds.

Use IBM MQ on Cloud as a managed offering. IBM will handle upgrades, patches and many of the operational management tasks, allowing you to focus on integrations with your applications.

IBM MQ on Cloud is more than ready, willing and able

Managed for you

You no longer need to maintain, monitor, upgrade and patch your systems that run IBM MQ. IBM does it for you so you’re more secure and can focus on business application innovation instead.

Migrated in minutes

IBM will migrate your message queue managers to the newest version of the IBM MQ continuous delivery stream in minutes, letting you create, access and upgrade them with one click.

Pay per workload

Pay only for what you use. Purchase capacity up front, with the option to use more in response to seasonal demand or even easily scale to respond to hourly demand.

Enabled for multicloud

Multiple clouds, platforms and orchestrations usually require multiple APIs. But for multicloud connectivity with IBM MQ on Cloud, you need only a single, standard API.

Two ways you can use IBM MQ on Cloud

Make information available in the cloud

Your company uses a mobile app on the cloud to facilitate e-commerce transactions. IBM MQ on Cloud connects the on-premises stock system with the consumer application to give users real-time information about what products are available.

Connect applications hosted in different locations

Your company hosts its core IT systems in San Francisco, but packages are processed in a depot in London. IBM MQ on Cloud reliably transmits messages from one location to another. It lets the London office encrypt "send" data about every package that needs to be tracked, and lets the San Francisco office receive and process that information more securely. Both offices can trust that information won’t be lost.
