IBM infrastructure as a service
Secure, rapidly-available virtual resources
IBM SmartCloud Enterprise—IBM’s enterprise-class public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS)—delivers secure and scalable hosted IT infrastructure with on-demand access to virtual server and storage resources. Well suited for development and test activities, as well as other dynamic workloads, SmartCloud Enterprise goes beyond competitive IaaS offerings with highly flexible services and IBM’s proven best-in-class security.
Powered by six state-of-the-art green IBM Smarter Data Centres with embedded security and isolation features, SmartCloud Enterprise performance is guaranteed with industry-leading IBM service-level agreements of 99.9% uptime that you can count on.
IBM SmartCloud Application Services, IBM's platform as a service offering, runs on top of and deploys virtual resources to IBM SmartCloud Enterprise. This powerful combination of infrastructure and platform services allows clients to develop, test and deploy either "born on the cloud" ("cloud-centric") applications, or legacy ("cloud-enabled") applications. In addition to speeding application development, SmartCloud Application Services also helps bridge the gap between development and operations processes, known as DevOps. Collaborative tools support the DevOps agile service delivery approach, accelerating application deployment from weeks to minutes.

"IBM is enterprise. When a technology trend comes along and IBM says it's okay, that's what makes it real for the enterprise. Cloud computing can effectively change the fundamental cost structure of IT management."
