IBM Launches New Cloud Computing Consulting and Implementation Services

Offers practical services to companies in public, private and hybrid cloud models

IBM has announced new cloud computing services to help businesses of all sizes take advantage of this increasingly attractive computing model. IBM is applying its industry-specific consulting expertise and established technology record to offer secure, practical services to companies in public, private and hybrid cloud models.

Industry-specific Business Consulting Services for Cloud Computing - IBM Global Business Services will use an economic model for assessing the total cost of ownership for building private clouds, and/or moving data and applications off-site in a public or hybrid cloud model.

Technology Consulting, Design and Implementation Services - IBM Global Technology Services is announcing new services to help clients install, configure and deliver cloud computing inside the data center.

Cloud Security - Spanning IBM Systems, Software, Services and IBM's Research and X-Force arms, this effort is aimed at re-architecting and re-designing technologies and processes, to infuse security and shield against threats and vulnerabilities in the cloud.

Cloud computing, or network-delivered services and software, can save customers up to 80 percent on floor space and 60 percent on power and cooling costs, and deliver triple asset utilization. While the economics are compelling to businesses of all sizes, concerns over security, data portability and reliability are causing reluctance among enterprise customers.
