IBM Pushes Into the Cloud With Cloud Implementation Services

Free registration required

Executive Summary

IBM's implementation service offering for private cloud computing provides a strong entry point for larger organizations. But smaller enterprises may want to look elsewhere for scalable, flexible testing resources. While there is more interest than action in the cloud computing market, IBM is clearly staking out a position with this announcement. Interest in cloud computing is growing very rapidly, but enterprises are taking an understandably cautious approach. IBM's offering provides customers with an "on ramp" to cloud computing by transforming their test environments into a cloud. This first cloud appliance is an entry point for IBM. If this offering succeeds, IBM is likely to introduce other private and public cloud-based services offerings.
