IT infrastructure on demand.

Bell Cloud Compute is an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solution available on multiple platforms that offers self-serve access to cloud-based computing, storage and network resources on a flexible pay-as-you-go basis.

With Bell Cloud Compute, you can move your workloads to the cloud environment that best suits your business – and you can connect to our advanced IP network for improved end-to-end performance, security and reliability.

Six reasons to choose Bell Cloud Compute

Simple, agile and cost effective, Bell Cloud Compute allows you to:


Access advanced technology and infrastructure.

Our custom cloud infrastructure is built with strategic partnerships with Cisco, Citrix and EMC, giving you access to best-in-class technology. And now with the option of accessing Amazon Web Services (AWS), IBM® Bluemix® and Microsoft Azure infrastructure services, you have even more flexibility to fit your specific workload and performance requirements.


Rapidly and easily respond to evolving business needs.

Quickly scale up or down in minutes as your computing, storage and network needs change – all through a convenient, bilingual self-serve portal.


Avoid infrastructure costs and provision exactly the capacity you need, paying only for what you use.

Eliminate the risks of over- or under-provisioning expensive equipment while keeping your infrastructure up-to-date with the latest technology. Flexible, predictable monthly billing allow you to control infrastructure costs while ensuring you have the capacity you need at all times.


Enjoy exceptional availability for your applications.

Bell’s cloud infrastructure includes comprehensive service level agreements (SLA) with a 99.9% uptime guarantee, so you can always access your data and mission-critical applications. Our SLA provides credits of up to 100% of your monthly bill, covering both the infrastructure and the self-serve portal.


Keep your data safe and secure in Canada.

Bell data centres are 100% Canadian facilities that are audited to CSAE 3416 and SSAE 16 standards and physically secured with biometric access controls, scanners, video surveillance and 24/7 on-site security staff and centralized monitoring.


Connect to our partners’ cloud platforms with Bell’s private IP network for end-to-end performance, security and reliability.

Connect your cloud infrastructure to our secure private network using Bell Cloud Connect through AWS Direct Connect, IBM® Direct Link or Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, giving you a flexible, end-to-end solution for an optimal cloud experience that bypasses the public Internet.
