What is IBM Cloud?
Our goal is to provide a cloud that is easy to use, unified across multiple deployments and the world leader in supporting mission-critical workloads. As part of our ongoing work to build the cloud designed for you, we are unifying the public, private, hybrid and multi-cloud under one brand. We are the IBM Cloud. The Cloud for your business.
IBM Cloud is Designed for your Data, AI Ready and Secure to the core
IBM Cloud offers the widest array of database options, from relational to NoSQL, while ensuring strong consistency, high integrity, and no delay.
IBM Cloud powers AI-intensive workloads that demand data integrity, low-latency and parallel processing. It also offers a broad range of Watson AI and machine learning APIs to build your own applications.
Security is at the core of IBM Cloud, it is not an after thought. IBM Cloud secures the movement of data on a network of networks. Public, private, and management traffic travel across separate network interfaces, segregating and securing traffic while streamlining management. IBM Cloud meets data sovereignty and compliance regulations with nearly 60 locally owned and operated data centers (https://www.ibm.com/cloud-computing/bluemix/data-centers/?cm_sp=Blog-_-Cloud-_-datacenters) in 19 countries—more than any other cloud provider.
IBM Cloud meets you where you are
IBM Cloud offers 170+ services ranging from bare metal, containers, and serverless computing to hyper scale infrastructure, blockchain, AI/ML, and HP, all with built in security at their core.
