Enabling enterprise-class workloads in the cloud
Enterprise-level workloads - such as SAP and Oracle workloads - require infrastructure with high availability, clustering, or physical server appliances, features which are often not a part of a cloud offering. As a result, businesses are forced to run enterprise workloads in their legacy environments, and cannot take advantage of the cloud's flexibility, elasticity, and low cost. IBM Cloud Managed Services (CMS) cloud implements shared storage, clustering support, and private networks. These features effectively enable a large number of SAP and Oracle workloads to run in both virtualized and non-virtualized cloud environments. In this paper, we discuss a diverse set of enterprise applications implemented in the IBM CMS cloud.
