IBM Cloud has developed a close partnership with Cloudflare by collaborating to create IBM Cloud Internet Services (CIS), a powerful suite of performance and security services now available on the IBM Cloud platform. CIS supports IBM customers looking to secure their internet-facing applications from distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, data theft and bot attacks, as well as for those customers needing to optimize their web applications, or ensure global responsiveness and the ongoing availability of their internet-facing applications.
We are excited to be expanding this partnership by waiving data transfer fees between IBM servers and Cloudflare servers for IBM Cloud Internet Services enterprise plan customers. When completed, we will announce the general availability of this great benefit. This is made possible by our strongly interconnected networks and technology as well as our commitment to drive innovation and value for our customers.
