IBM Cloud Private Storage (CPS) is available from IBM’s Global Technology Services (GTS) group. It offers a dedicated, single-tenant storage environment with management and support services layered on top. It can be deployed as an on premises-only service or expanded to IBM public cloud storage resources to yield a dedicated hybrid cloud storage environment.
