IBM recently announced a $38M investment in a new IBM Asia Pacific Cloud Computing Data Center in Singapore, which will provide businesses with solutions and services to harness the potential of cloud computing.
The new facility will extend IBM’s globally-integrated cloud delivery network with centres in Germany, Canada and the United States; and 13 global cloud labs, of which seven are based in Asia Pacific – China, India, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Singapore.
Scheduled to launch in April, the Centre will make available IBM’s cloud services and technology portfolio via the company’s cloud delivery infrastructure. T
hese services are designed to enable clients to reap the benefits of business and IT transformation; increase flexibility and agility; accelerate time to market; reduce costs; and increase security and compliance of public cloud environments.
The first offering to be available at the IBM Asia Pacific Cloud Computing Data Centre will be from IBM’s infrastructure as a service (IaaS) cloud portfolio.
It helps enterprises reduce operational costs; eliminate capital outlays; improve cycle times for faster time-to-market; and improve quality with virtually instant, secure access to a standardized infrastructure as a service environment.
