Case Study QuickView: IBM Computing On Demand Uses Clouds to Increase Business Productivity
IBM customers increasingly require shorter time frames to acquire additional computing capacity. One option is leasing this capacity, but traditional lease terms lack the flexibility and quick response times that today's businesses need. Using existing Computing On-Demand technologies from IBM systems, IBM taken advantage of cloud computing techniques to allow customers to gain access to as much or as little additional computing capacity they need with minimal turnaround time. With clouds, IBM Computing on Demand (CoD) reduces the time to select and provision resources from weeks or days to just a matter of hours. Read this case study to see how IBM clients are able to the access additional computing capacity they need quickly and securely.
