Is your cloud solution Ready for IBM Cloud?
The Ready for IBM Cloud program is designed to maximize value for our customers by working with Cloud Solution and Service Providers and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). You can validate your solution or service with IBM Cloud Infrastructure, Platform, and Private Cloud offerings. We have an open ecosystem and all IBM Business Partners with cloud solutions and services are encouraged to join.
The Ready for IBM Cloud initiative is designed to create wins for you, wins for our customers, and wins for IBM. By working together, we believe we create greater value for our shared customers at lower cost, which in turn benefits both Business Partners and IBM.
More details about the technical validation
The validation process involves submitting basic information about your solution, completing the checklist and conducting a solution demonstration/review. The review assumes the solution is a reference implementation (e.g., customer reference) which has been deployed in the previous 12 months.
After receiving your completed documentation, a member of the IBM Cloud team will contact you and will work with you to arrange a convenient time to review your solution. Technical details of your solution will be required to enable this formal review of the solution. The review may include a request for a brief web based demonstration of the utilization of IBM's Cloud platform services
The the IBM Cloud Architecture Center (https://developer.ibm.com/cloudarchitecture/docs/) provides general guidance on areas such as security, service management and virtualization. These are typical of the technical domain areas that will be part of the review.
Use of any IBM cloud platform will qualify you for this program. These services include IBM Cloud Infrastructure, Platform, and Private Cloud offerings.
