Ultimate Virtual Server Buying Guide

Get tips and strategies for a more informed virtual compute decision-making process.


Reduce labor for thin IT departments

For small or overburdened IT departments, alleviate ongoing maintenance responsibilities associated with on-premises data centers or dedicated, non-virtual servers.

Grow when you’re ready

Develop VPS solutions on demand. Keep costs to a minimum with hourly and monthly pricing. Save time by reserving virtual servers in advance, or pay as you use for temporary capacity.

Rely on our global network

The closer data is to your users, the fewer the hassles. The IBM global network of data centers and POP locations help ensure low latency, superior security and timely service delivery.

Expand your configuration options

A wide range of standard options is available, including BYO capabilities, fixed configurations, single and multitenant servers, versatile storage, and extensive memory.
