IBM South Africa said it has expanded its cloud computing services for clients in southern Africa by adding a new IBM Cloud Data Centre and Cloud Lab in Johannesburg. The new IBM Cloud Data Centre will deliver IBM's SmartCloud enterprise-class services, which include a broad spectrum of secure managed services, to run diverse workloads across predominantly hybrid private cloud delivery methods, the company said in a statement. The Cloud Lab facility is designed to help businesses, government and research institutions, and institutes of higher learning, to design, adopt and reap benefits of cloud technologies. This is the first opportunity for enterprise clients in South Africa to benefit from hybrid private cloud solutions that offer predetermined service level agreements on a software as a service or utility computing-based model, said Werner Lindemann, VP for Global Technology Services at IBM Sub-Saharan Africa.
