IBM Cloud

IBM Cloud offers comprehensive solutions. Applications and data will be stored safely in data stores and accessible from anywhere. The cloud is not just a means for data storage.

Technology:

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  • Software as a Service (SaaS)

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

This is a cloud computing offer which provides access to computation resources (e.g. servers, data storage systems, network environment). The customer uses their own platforms and applications within the infrastructure.

  • The infrastructure can be adapted to individual requirements.
  • Very quick and simple optimisation of hardware resources
  • Savings for purchasing and maintenance of your own hardware
  • More space for your own development
  • With this service, you only pay for what you actually use.

 

Platform as a Service (PaaS)

PaaS provides a platform for operating applications with tools for management, development and monitoring of applications. The offer includes a complete environment where you can create and subsequently operate your own applications. It is possible to develop in basically any programming language.

  • Tools for development, testing and hosting of applications in one environment
  • No infrastructure management, all of your energy dedicated to the development itself
  • The provider takes care of security, OS, server software and back-ups
  • Better collaboration for remotely operating teams

Software as a Service (SaaS)

SaaS is a cloud computing offer in which the provider delivers their own software solution. The applications are access via web or API interfaces; there is no local installation. All of supporting infrastructure, other software and data are placed in the service provider’s data centre.

  • The applications and software are provided on the basis of subscriptions.
  • There is no need to manage or update your software; the provider takes care of everything.
  • Customer data is safely stored in the cloud; potential failure does not result in data loss.
  • Service usage can be modified according to customer needs.
  • Thanks to minimal demands of the station, the applications can be basically accessed from anywhere in the world.
