Streamline, simplify and reduce costs by building a more efficient cloud infrastructure

Clouds built on efficient infrastructures improve productivity while helping reduce administrative and capital costs. Many successful organizations start by consolidating and virtualizing their infrastructure – servers, storage and networking. Streamlining the infrastructure helps improve utilization and performance for more efficient cloud delivery.

IBM understands your business has unique needs. We provide cloud infrastructure solutions for multi-vendor environments with a choice of platforms best suited to run demanding workloads. We offer UNIX, x86 or mainframe systems – all with proven virtualization capabilities.

Deploy advanced cloud functionality, including full lifecycle management, automated provisioning, metering and more

Advanced cloud infrastructure solutions break down traditional IT silos and simplify information access to increase productivity and speed innovation. Through a seamless orchestration of a multi-vendor environment of servers, storage and networks, organizations can bring diverse resources under a single point of management control.

This helps achieve service levels and improves the availability and security of the service. When different groups access computing resources simultaneously, your cloud infrastructure prioritizes resources and automatically makes decisions. So when multiple business demands compete for data and network bandwidth, business services can be delivered rapidly.

The routine tasks your IT department handles don't always improve the bottom line, and in fact, can cripple productivity. But with automated cloud server technology, you can reduce application development cycles – and deliver the agility and innovation your organization needs.

Simplifying administration with self-service provisioning and automated IT service deployment frees IT from manual tasks. IT can now concentrate on projects that enhance business value.

IBM offers entry cloud solutions that are easy to deploy and use. Working with your existing infrastructure, our solutions help automate and efficiently manage virtualized systems and storage infrastructures. The best news: you can implement new applications or systems in minutes rather than weeks.
