clod2IBM has commissioned its first cloud data centre in India at Mumbai, expanding its global cloud centre footprint, as part of efforts to bolster its presence in the country’s cloud computing market.The new 30,000ft2 centre forms part of the 15 cloud centre expansion, and a $1.2bn investment by IBM Cloud to bolster its cloud presence globally.

“With the new data centre, IBM will be able to tap into BFSI, telecom and government sectors, which haven’t been able to move to cloud in a big way due to regulatory requirements,” said Lingraju Sawkar, director, Integrated Technology Services.

He said:”This new Mumbai center represents IBM’s latest investment in creating the most extensive network of cloud facilities in the industry. “Through this new center we are able to help usher businesses into the cloud era while delivering the levels of resiliency and security that allow them to experience the benefits of this new environment while ensuring they remain protected.”
