The open-minded cloud

Red Hat® OpenShift® on IBM Cloud™ is an enterprise-grade service that helps speed up your application development cycle.

Focuses on making the Kubernetes experience easier for both developer and operations teams. Because it provides a highly available, fully managed OpenShift cluster at the click of a button, it removes the heavy lifting associated with infrastructure set-up and support. This means you can focus on developing at an application level, which, in turn, increases time to value.

Benefits of the offering include:

  • Self-service, metered billing with no long-term commitment

  • Automated provisioning
  • Updates and patching

  • 24/7 global support

The cloud that puts you in control

Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is your own network on the IBM Cloud, providing the level of security and resiliency you would get on premise.

Allows you to define and control a fully virtualised network in logically isolated parts of the IBM Cloud where you can deploy your desired cloud resources. This enterprise-grade approach to private isolation means organisations that have concerns over the security and network policies associated with public cloud can leverage the same scalability.

  • Scales dynamically to meet business requirements
  • Reduces overall IT costs by freeing up assets
  • Speeds time-to-innovation by removing constraints

The cloud that fuels innovation

IBM Cloud™ Object Storage is a flexible, low cost and scalable storage solution that accommodates vast – and growing – quantities of data.

Makes it easy to store limitless amounts of data, whether for data archiving and backup, web and mobile applications, or persistent storage analytics. Flexible storage class tiers, combined with a policy-based archive, mean you can effectively manage costs based on your data access requirements.

  • Self-service, metered billing with no long-term commitment

  • Flexible storage class tiers and low-cost archive

  • High durability and resiliency – designed for 99.99999999% durability 

  • Fast data transfer with native IBM Aspera® integration

The cloud that protects your territory

IBM Cloud™ Virtual Servers for Virtual Private Cloud give you access to all the benefits of IBM Virtual Private Cloud, including network isolation, security and flexibility.

All the benefits of IBM Virtual Private Cloud, with a simpler user experience and cost savings.

  • New IBM Cloud console

  • New VPC API and CLI

  • New billing model with sustained usage discount tiers

The cloud that holds it together

IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service enables you to securely manage the resources you need to quickly deploy, update and scale applications.

Creates a cluster of compute hosts and deploys highly available containers according to available resources. Easily integrates cognitive solutions with a variety of Watson APIs to extend the power of your applications. Includes security features to protect your cluster infrastructure, isolate your compute resources and ensure security compliance in your container deployments.

  • Secure clusters
  • Self-healing containers
  • Built-in logging and metrics service
  • Intelligent scheduling

The cloud that’s built to scale

Bare Metal Servers give you sole access to the entire server for high-performance, on-demand provisioning.

Provides flexibility and control for high-performance and data-intensive applications requiring minimal latency-related delays. Unlike a virtual server with multiple tenants, the pure bare metal server is single tenant and offered without a hypervisor, thereby eliminating the “noisy neighbour” effect and any performance “tax”. Can be acquired in a preconfigured form or custom-configured to exact specifications.

  • Big data analytic applications

  • Container-based solutions

  • SAP solutions

  • GPU-intensive solutions

  • Dedicated power for gaming

  • Web hosting

  • High degree of security control

The multi-tasking cloud

Public, dedicated, reserved and transient Virtual Servers allow you to provision and scale on demand.

A great option if you need compute resources that can be added in minutes, with access to features like image templates. Virtual servers are scalable and come with dedicated core and memory allocations. The hypervisor is fully managed by IBM Cloud, and you can perform configuration and management tasks by using both the IBM Cloud customer portal and the API.
