Cloud giant IBM has announced that they will be expanding their cloud capabilities by launching 18 new availability zones across the Asia Pacific, Europe and North America. With this launch, IBM aims to provide fault-tolerant data center services to businesses in the midst of high demand for cloud solutions.
According to IBM, cloud-based data centers are gaining prominence as a result of the business advantage given to organizations. They say that organizations of all sizes are making the most out of this benefit provided by the cloud.
By launching new availability zones, IBM say that they will be providing cloud-based data center services to organizations such as oil & gas firm ExxonMobil, eye-health company Bausch + Lomb and Australian bank Westpac. They say that these organizations, and many others, will be able to draw strength from fault-tolerant hubs launched by IBM.
Speaking about the launch, David Kenny, Senior Vice President, IBM Watson & Cloud Platform, commented:
The world’s biggest companies work with IBM to migrate them to the cloud because we know their technology and unique business needs as they bridge their past with the future.
Our continued cloud investment and growing client roster reflect that companies are increasingly seeking hybrid cloud environments that offer cutting edge tools including AI, analytics, IoT and blockchain to maximize their benefits.
