Today’s workloads are dynamic and power-hungry. Cloud requirements for mission-critical workloads often change overnight – causing IT priorities to shift, deadlines to tighten, and budgets to shrink. Seconds matter, especially when it comes to the bottom line. And bottom lines take brutal hits when companies haven’t properly established a powerful and flexible infrastructure. Those in the trenches are starving for more control over provisioning. IT is a delicate game of strategy to deliver the best services and tools to endusers and customers. If the proper infrastructure is there, companies can accelerate their business through IT – be it transferring data faster, delivering new applications and updates, or gaining quick insights from machine learning. If the proper infrastructure isn’t there, IT teams are forced to cut corners that eventually lead to costly fallouts. The proper foundation for a high-performing cloud begins with an infrastructure that not only improves your bottom line, but also gives your IT team the essentials to make the magic happen. IBM delivers the best foundation for an enterprise-strong infrastructure – IBM Cloud bare metal servers. We announced our first bare metal server in 2005, and since then, have become the industry’s most trusted choice for bare metal solutions with our selection of flexible, proven configurations and latest GPU technologies. The value of bare metal is in its power, security, and configurability. And that value is in IBM Cloud.
