Rethink your IT delivery
A private cloud can add agility and efficiency to your internal non-production and production workloads. It can also function as a carrier-grade platform so you can sell cloud-based services and generate new revenue streams.
A private cloud infrastructure can help you stay competitive in a difficult economy. You can reduce capital and operating costs as well as create new revenue streams as a cloud service provider. The Corporate Executive Board has stated that many organizations plan to deliver at least 30 percent of their capacity via private cloud by 2015. But successfully implementing a private cloud infrastructure can be complex and requires a diverse set of skills.
IBM Implementation Services for Cloud offers IBM specialists to help you plan, design and implement a private cloud environment. Our offering provides three cloud configuration options, depending on your business needs:
Within each configuration, you can choose your base software. IBM Service Delivery Manager offers a comprehensive cloud infrastructure that includes network, storage, security, monitoring and service-level management. IBM SmartCloud™ Provisioning can offer a faster, lower-cost implementation along with a rich set of capabilities, such as self-healing, image management and rapid scalability.
IBM brings deep experience from thousands of private cloud engagements. We use the IBM Cloud Computing Reference Architecture, along with time-tested methodologies to help reduce risk and business disruption during implementation. We also provide access to the applications of a vast IBM Business Partner ecosystem to help you drive innovative services to market more quickly.
