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 data centers, SmartCloud Enterprise availability includes industry-leading IBM service-level agreements of 99.9%.
IBM SmartCloud Enterprise is part of IBM’s larger SmartCloud framework, which also includes cloud architecture for private and hybrid cloud, as well as Software as a Service (SaaS) business solutions.
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.
