IBM is opening four new IBM Cloud data centers across the United States to support growing enterprise demand for cloud infrastructure that can provide access to services such as IoT, blockchain, quantum computing and cognitive. The new cloud centers are based in Dallas, Texas and Washington, D.C.
The new U.S. facilities are intended to help enable companies to digitize business and operations and drive cognitive innovation through the IBM Cloud. The new cloud centers take advantage of IBM’s cognitive services with Watson on the IBM Cloud.
IBM Cloud’s global network, which spans 19 countries and six continents, includes 55 cloud data centers in local markets so clients can run data and applications locally to meet performance and regulatory needs. With the new US facilities, IBM now maintains 22 cloud centers within the United States.
Each of the four new facilities now open in the U.S. has the capacity for thousands of physical servers and offers a full range of cloud infrastructure services, including bare metal servers, virtual servers, storage, security services and networking. IBM said it also offers the latest NVIDIA GPU accelerators – including the Tesla P100, Tesla K80 and the Tesla M60 – to help run compute-heavy workloads such as AI, deep learning and high performance data analytics.
