Why IBM Cloud?
IBM is a hybrid cloud market leader, providing public and private cloud integrations across both Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) models.
The hybrid cloud model is extended via their partnership with VMware. So, if your business already has an on-premise environment, setup on VMware, it just takes a few hours to extend it to IBM Cloud and configure a hybrid setup that lets you gain Speed, Scale and Control. Apart from provisioning application development infrastructure, you can event implement a Disaster Recovery plan, or quite simply, expand your datacentre.
The PaaS model is largely powered by the Bluemix ecosystem, offering infrastructure and services to configure and deploy a powerful cloud system using the following deployment models:
- Public: Choose the runtime of your choice and build your app and APIs in minutes using over 130 unique services
- Dedicated: Provision a private, hosted Bluemix environment with an extensive catalogue of cloud services
- Local: Take advantage of cloud behind your firewall, in what IBM calls, a cloud platform delivered as a cloud service - a first of its kind!
IBM is also the founding members and premium partners of the Cloud Foundry which lets global brands build, test, deliver and scale high quality apps across Java, Node.js, PHP, Python, Ruby and Go using the latest DevOps tools and frameworks.
IBM Cloud Data Services along with the cognitive power of Watson lets you access the widest range of data analytics, machine learning and AI technologies available today and build smart apps based on them. Businesses can utilize the power of AlchemyLanguage, Visual Recognition and Natural Language Classifier to reveal actionable business insights from structured and unstructured data.
