Today, we’re announcing a partnership with IBM that brings powerful email deliverability and scalability to the IBM Cloud marketplace. With our partnership, IBM clients can integrate a simple cloud-based email engine utilizing SendGrid’s proven delivery infrastructure into their web and mobile applications.

The IBM Cloud marketplace offers clients access to more than 100 SaaS applications, IBM’s Bluemix platform-as-a-service with its suite of composable services, the powerful SoftLayer infrastructure-as-a-service and IBM’s rich intellectual capital and deep industry expertise. This single online destination with a suite of cloud services delivers a new buying experience for clients that enables line of business professionals to deploy new services faster, allows developers to build them with greater speed, and offers IT departments more creative, efficient, and lower-cost ways to deliver these services.

“Scaling is one of the most difficult challenges that a company will face because it typically requires additional resources and systems to support the growth,” said Laurence Trifon, Director, Business Development, SendGrid. “Access to cloud-based development platforms and infrastructure solutions like email delivery from SendGrid helps removes the complexity of building and maintaining fundamental services so that developers can focus on innovating their own product. We’re thrilled to extend this custom integration offering through IBM and excited to see what developers will build.”
