Infrastructure as a Service
IBM® Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) delivers a range of security-rich, enterprise-class cloud services that can be leveraged to provide instant access for development and test teams to resources needed to accelerate software delivery. Use self-service IaaS or our fully managed IaaS to deploy and scale virtual and dedicated bare-metal infrastructure, develop applications and run your production-ready workloads.
IBM SoftLayer provides a global cloud-based infrastructure -- the perfect foundation for DevOps solutions (YouTube, 00:01:55), enabling organizations to unite each phase of the software delivery process seamlessly. The SoftLayer infrastructure allows for real-time transparency, meaning teams across all phases of development work simultaneously -- fully aware of what the others are doing. Development teams can leverage the resources they need, when they need them, and deploy bare metal dedicated or virtual servers in minutes with the performance, security, flexibility and control needed to bring software delivery to the next level.
