Let’s bring the cloud where you need it - tech deep-dive

Explore the benefits of consistent and flexible public cloud services anywhere

Join our live digital event on June 17, 13:00

What's in it for you?

Run your workloads from the location of your choice to better meet legal requirements, compliance standards, data speeds and network latency needs. Want modernize applications and increase developer productivity and velocity in your organisation at the same time?

The complexities of your current infrastructure, skills needs, and organizational silos may make it challenging to prioritize where and how to start applying the technology and move with agility.

Any cloud, on-premise data center, or from the edge? Consistently deploy, manage and control your workloads across these environments with the latest addition to IBM’s hybrid cloud offerings. It provides a public cloud extension to private cloud location.

Have IBM Cloud manage the cloud where YOU want it!

Join us for an interactive "show not tell" session with a live demonstration how you can create a hybrid environment that brings the scalability and on-demand flexibility of public cloud services to the applications and data that run in your secure private cloud.

Would you like to go more in-depth with our subject matter experts (SME), then please book a 30 minutes 1-on-1 later in the afternoon.
