Third IBM Cloud data centre opens in Sydney
IBM has launched a new IBM Cloud data centre in Sydney as part of an international expansion of its data centre footprint.
The company’s new Sydney data centre joins two new facilities in London and one in San Jose, California, taking IBM’s total global cloud data centre footprint up to 60 across 19 countries.
With the new expansion, IBM now operates four cloud data centres in Australia — three in Sydney and one in Melbourne.
IBM said it is the only cloud provider in Australia to provide a complete set of Australian Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) certified cloud server options, ranging from bare metal to public and private virtual servers.
IBM Cloud enterprise customers can take advantage of more than 150 APIs and services, covering capabilities including cognitive computing based on Watson, blockchain, big data and the IoT.
“IBM operates cloud data centres in nearly every major market around the world, ensuring that our clients can keep their data local for a variety of reasons — including performance, security or regulatory requirements,” IBM GM for cloud infrastructure services John Considine said.
“We continue to expand our cloud capacity in response to growing demand from clients who require cloud infrastructure and cognitive services to help them compete on a global scale.”
