IBM has opened a new cloud center in Mumbai, the 10th such center this year and the latest in IBM’s $1.2 billion investment in Cloud Centers in every major market worldwide. The 31,000 sq ft Mumbai facility offers an array of solutions including cloud resiliency services that guarantee customers up times of 99.99 percent across any IT environment, including traditional IT, public, private, or hybrid cloud deployments.
The company has cloud centers in London, Amsterdam, Beijing, Hong Kong, Singapore, Melbourne, Toronto, Dallas and Raleigh, NC. IBM also launched IBM Cloud OpenStack Services via the IBM Cloud marketplace to enable the delivery of a secure, dedicated and highly available environment that enables greater flexibility and an open cloud.
The OpenStack services will enable greater interoperability between existing IT systems and off-premise cloud workloads and provide clients with the means to more easily deploy an OpenStack cloud, IBM said.
