Computer manufacturer IBM is set to provide cloud services for researchers at Swiss university ETH Zurich, it has been revealed.
The company announced plans to join forces with the science and technology institute to develop new antibiotics to be used in the development of new disease-fighting antibiotics.
News of the move comes after previous research from the World Health Organization revealed the number of antimicrobial resistant pathogens is on the increase.
For this reason, the university scientists identified almost 250 potential virulence factors using IBM's cloud computing facilities.
"Cloud computing allows [us] to reserve this computing capacity whenever researchers need it and it is available quickly," remarked lead researcher Dr Lars Malmstrom.
This news comes after the IT manufacturer announced that restaurant chain YO! Sushi would use its business analytics software in a bid to improve operations.
In addition, the eatery will be able to monitor sales trends for how individual types of food products are selling with the use of the company's services.
