IBM launches cloud computing centre in Canada

IBM launches cloud computing centre in Canada

IBM has introduced its own cloud computing centre in Canada to help small and medium-sized firms host applications and data off-site and therefore reduce money.

The firm unveiled its new $42 million (£26.1 million) facility which will enable it to offer more capabilities in the technology market.

Canadian businesses will be able to have large parts of its on-site computer resources hosted elsewhere, ensuring that they only pay for what they have hosted, reports

Bruce Ross, president of IBM Canada, told the news provider that the move will help both IBM and companies looking for a safe hosting solution.

"This is an innovation investment in Canada that will help Canadian businesses capture the promise of new computing models to drive productivity and increase competitiveness," he said.

"IBM's breadth of global expertise in cloud computing will provide Canadian organisations with an unparalleled level of service and reliability as they drive innovative business transformation."

The International Data Corporation reported yesterday (January 31st) that the cloud computing software management industry will see revenues rise to £1.57 billion by 2015.
