IBM offers software and services designed for business partners through public or private clouds.

Posted on: November 12, 2011


  • Technology giant IBM launched a set of cloud computing tools designed to help business partners adopt cloud business models and generate new revenue streams by offering public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures, applications and services to their clients. The company is extending the IBM SmartCloud portfolio with two new public cloud services, SmartCloud Enterprise+ and SmartCloud Application Services.
  • SmartCloud Enterprise+ will provide infrastructure as a service, including enterprise-class governance, administration and management control, multiple security and isolation options built into the virtual infrastructure and network, and real business-centric service-level agreements (SLAs). Additionally, IBM intends to make SCE+ available to qualified IBM business partners for resell in the first half of 2012.
  • SmartCloud Application Services will enable enterprise applications as a cloud service using a set of secure tools, and interested ISVs can join the SmartCloud Application Service beta program.
  • IBM also announced enhancements to the existing IBM SmartCloud, including a white label option for business partners to launch branded services based on SmartCloud Enterprise.
  • In addition, IBM is launching SmartCloud Foundation, a family of private cloud solutions to help businesses design and deploy private cloud environments. The private cloud offerings will be specifically targeted to small to medium-size businesses (SMBs). SmartCloud Entry, delivered by IBM Starter Kit for Cloud, offers the building blocks to create private clouds on virtualized IBM System x and Power Systems hardware.
