Who Is Cloud Services?
In today’s digital economy, leading businesses understand that customer experience has become the most important source of competitive advantage. With this in mind, IBM has created a collection of fully integrated services to help your business use the eruption of data across all digital channels to understand its customers and anticipate their needs.
Lab Services capabilities to help clients master hybrid cloud include capabilities to evolve their IT infrastructure with services for cloud strategy and design, optimal server and storage provisioning, workload placement, cloud management, and orchestration
Executive Advisory Practice
We offer a flexible and adaptable approach to accelerate adoption of hybrid cloud capabilities in support of defined business and IT objectives. This includes reviewing current IT infrastructure and workloads, assessing cloud readiness across multiple IT domains, and defining a detailed roadmap to achieve a future state hybrid cloud environment.
Power Systems Practice
We help businesses design and deploy a hybrid cloud infrastructure based on a foundation of PowerVM® or PowerKVM virtualization. We help clients deploy PowerVC 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, such as VMware vRealize Automation and IBM Cloud Orchestrator.
We help users 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 decision on archive, scale-out storage, object storage, and on and off premises options, using the IBM Spectrum family including IBM Spectrum Scale™, IBM Spectrum Accelerate™, and Cleversafe.
