Cloud computing can potentially be a disruptive change to the way an enterprise’s IT services are delivered. We propose that examining a candidate cloud solution provider’s reference architecture should be a standard element of a CIO’s cloud vendor evaluation strategy. To that end, in this paper we will describe the proven cloud computing reference architecture that IBM employs in building private clouds for clients, private clouds that house IBM internal applications and the IBM Cloud that supports our public cloud service offerings. This same reference architecture is reflected in the design of IBM cloud appliances (bundled hardware and software for cloud implementation) and IBM cloud service management software products.
