Organisations who are looking to work faster and with greater agility often look to a private cloud as a solution. Not only can a private cloud improve data security, but it can also make better use of your existing IT resources. Unless you’re using Platform as a Service (PaaS), you’re not getting the full value out of your private cloud implementation. IBM’s Private Modular Cloud removes the bottlenecks that result from manual setups of middleware provisioning. With full automation across infrastructure and middleware, now you can provision in just minutes, while vastly reducing IT workloads, errors and costs. That’s the power of an integrated cloud environment based on PaaS.

IBM Private Modular Cloud features
Traditional methods for setting up an automated private cloud using PaaS can take up to six weeks, but IBM can have yours deployed in less than a day. We provide automation tools, proven methodologies and best practices to give you:
- Quick Provisioning with 200+ Patterns
- Rapid scalability
Start now with smaller cloud blocks, then scale up as needed to as many as 10,000 VMs.
- Simplified maintenance
Apply patches and upgrades to middleware in minutes and achieve up to 80% reduction in deployment efforts.
Pattern is defined as code for a specific operating system, database, middleware or solution that enables automated provisioning and de-provisioning of each of those platform elements.
Patterns are available for a wide range of vendor products: Apache, BEA, Oracle, Sun, IBM Lotus®, IBM WebSphere®, and IBM Tivoli® software, to name a few.
