CloudOne offers IBM Rational Jazz products in the Cloud through Software as a Service.
Cloud Computing is a model where hardware server capacity is provided to users, computers and devices over the Internet. Much like public utilities provide electricity, phone service or water, Cloud Computing provides servers, applications and databases over the “pipe” of the internet. Cloud shifts the burden of maintenance and operation of computer servers to a utility-like model so organizations can focus on what makes them unique and great.
Software as a Service, sometimes shortened to “SaaS”, is a method of software deployment where a provider offers licenses to an application or tool for use on-demand, either as a timed subscription or “pay-as-you-go”. The tool or application is usually over provided the Internet using Internet standards for security and access.
CloudOne is the only company that offers Rational Jazz tools through Cloud and Software as a Service. Together, customers can scale both hardware and software up and down as they need, and their costs scale with it. It’s the best of both worlds.
Based in suburban Chicago, Illinois, CloudOne makes IBM Rational technology easy-to-deploy and affordable for everyone - particularly for small and medium-sized organizations. Their unique Software-as-a-Service license model, coupled with cloud-based delivery of software from their own data center speeds up the deployment of Rational solutions with no up-front capital investments for hardware or software, allowing customers to “pay by the drink” on a monthly subscription model. This saves money on infrastructure, staffing and configuration costs, while facilitating the move to cutting-edge IBM Rational technology and distributed, Agile development.
Based in McLean, VA, ATS Corporation (ATSC) is a leading provider of full lifecycle IT systems solutions, mission-driven consulting services and responsive infrastructure support to federal civilian agencies, Department of Defense, public safety and national security customers, and commercial enterprises.
