Who Is Cloud Services?
Lab Services offers end-to-end capabilities to help clients gain the agility, flexibility, and efficiency benefits of enterprise-wide cloud computing. Our range of services includes formulating cloud strategic plans, defining the right balance between cloud delivery models, translating this into the relevant multiplatform architectures, and implementing the necessary server and storage infrastructure.
Executive Advisory Practice
We help organizations define their enterprise cloud transformation strategies and represent these as multiplatform cloud architectures, reflecting the optimal delivery model, workload placement, and management environment. We offer a flexible and adaptable approach that includes reviewing current IT infrastructure and workloads, assessing cloud readiness across multiple IT domains, and designing a detailed roadmap to achieve a future state hybrid cloud environment.
Power Systems Practice
We help businesses design and build hybrid cloud infrastructure based on a foundation of PowerVM or KVM virtualization. We help clients implement PowerVC as a foundation for OpenStack-based private cloud management services for Power Systems, storage, and networking. We also provide services for integrating with cloud management and orchestration platforms.
Storage and Software Defined Infrastructure Practice
We help clients migrate data from a traditional IT environment to the cloud environment, or build data disaster recovery architecture between hybrid clouds (or hybrid cloud and traditional IT environment). We bring our vast experience and industry knowledge to help you make policy decisions on archive, scale-out storage, object storage, and on and off premise options, using the IBM Spectrum family including IBM Spectrum Scale, IBM Spectrum Accelerate, and IBM Cloud Object Storage.
z Systems and LinuxONE Practice
We help clients design and deploy a hybrid cloud infrastructure for enterprise transactions, systems of records, and application workloads. We help deploy OpenStack-based cloud management services for z Systems, LinuxONE, storage, and networking. We provide services for integrating with cloud management platforms, such as VMWare vRealize Automation, IBM Cloud Management Appliance, and IBM Wave. We help our clients with the end-to-end hybrid cloud integration including all variants of the API-enabling technology such as z/OS Connect. We also help clients with new transformational projects in the area of Blockchain through consultation and deployment of the infrastructure including security.
