Classic cloud solutions & all-in-one PaaS solutions with private cloud in a box
Already familiar with the pioneering IBM PureApplication platform?
An increasing number of businesses are making the transition to the cloud. Working in the cloud offers countless benefits. And what about you? Will you opt for public, private or hybrid cloud? What are the various pros and cons and corresponding price tags? Our cloud engineers provide expert advice and assistance on all these questions and more. Yet there’s also another alternative … The largely pre-configured IBM PureApplication platform for private cloud in a box offers a flexible Platform As A Service solution with unparalleled benefits.
What exactly is private cloud in a box?
With this solution, hardware, PureApplication middleware software, hypervisors and network devices are all included in one ready-to-use box. A compact all-in-one, hybrid and hyper-converged cloud solution for optimal data storage, computing power, virtualisation and application automation.
Quick & easy to manage
The PureApp technology facilitates and expedites the installation and management of applications. Indeed, app deployment takes just a few hours!
Private cloud in a box offers the self-service features of a public cloud service on-site. Developers can install and manage application servers themselves. With template software patterns, user-friendly interfaces and clear visualisations, PureSystems makes middleware application management demonstrably simpler, faster and more cost-effective.
App developers and administrators can find plenty of useful tips & tricks in our IBM PureApplication user group!
The benefits of PureApplication private cloud in a box
Prefer not to share your shared server with other companies and don’t wish to store sensitive data on public servers? Private cloud in a box gives you your own cloud in your very own “data center’’. This means that your data is literally at your fingertips. And your middleware applications are closer to that data, promoting improved performance. After all, the physical network infrastructure is less complex, on-premise and easier to manage.
Traditional cloud servers mean continuously estimating capacity requirements. But do you know precisely how much capacity you require to process data on average and at peak times? And can you forecast that for the coming years? To prevent downtime, you’ll likely prefer to provide excessive, as opposed to insufficient, computing power and storage capacity. Even if that means paying an exorbitant amount. With private cloud in a box you only pay for the functionality that you do use in a scalable cloud server that can be readily expanded.
App deployment is considerably faster by virtue of predefined software patterns. A new app can be ready to use on your on-premise and off-premise systems in just 4 hours!
Manual tasks and human errors are maximally avoided. Clear visualisation and reporting also makes your app lifecycle management more transparent and efficient. A self-service option can even be provided, enabling your application developers and management team to deploy new versions themselves.
