The next big step in the evolution of the IBM Cloud portfolio is here.
IBM Bluemix is integrating SoftLayer products and services into its vast catalog of infrastructure, platform, and application services.
The SoftLayer products, services, tools, systems, and support will become a cornerstone of a unified Bluemix cloud experience that delivers the performance, flexibility, and consistency of SoftLayer infrastructure alongside the extensive catalog of cloud resources that include IBM Watson services, development runtimes, containers, database services, and more.
And now that SoftLayer is integrated into the IBM Bluemix, one can only expect the best as it will bring all the cloud together in one place with developer-centric compute models – Bluemix makes it easier to ship powerful, high-quality software every day.
But what exactly is IBM SoftLayer, now Bluemix, and what does it do?
The Bluemix cloud platform is not just about creating new apps or migrating existing ones, on-prem or off-prem implementations, or offering IaaS and PaaS cloud services. It’s designed to bring all of these aspects together to help you solve your real, complex business problems in the cloud.
If your organization requires high performance computing, or you manage very large databases, Bluemix provides leading edge, dedicated architecture and ease of provisioning specifically designed to accommodate high input/output intensity for online gaming, mobile applications and digital marketing.
For larger organizations that need a correspondingly high level of infrastructure control, it provides the ability to customize hardware, network control and control infrastructure via simple and intuitive application programming interfaces (APIs).
What makes Bluemix different and how can it help your business?
The IBM Bluemix cloud platform weaves together services, infrastructure and data to rapidly bring ideas into action. It simplifies the process of building systems that use data to understand, reason, and learn.
It also builds data rich software as apps and services become increasingly delivered through digital channels; analytics are the heart of personalization, establishing context and building systems that intuitively respond to both behavior and the environment.
Unlike some of its competitors, Bluemix also provides a unified integration and control panel for multiple cloud architectures — allowing for easy platform integration across dedicated, virtualised and cloud servers.
The Bluemix will simply drive your company’s existing IT into transformation.
