Bausch + Lomb, ExxonMobil, Westpac Shift Central Workloads to IBM Cloud
International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) provides information technology (IT) products and services worldwide. The Dow 30 component has announced a huge expansion of its cloud abilities. The expansion will aim to unveil 18 new availability zone for the IBM cloud across the areas of North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. With the launch, the companies ExxonMobil, Bausch + Lomb and Westpac will be moving their central workloads to the IBM cloud.
The 18 new availability zones will be located in high demand locations such as Germany, UK, Tokyo, Sydney, Washington, D.C., and Dallas, Texas. Even though IBM currently operates in almost 60 locations, it will now possess even more volume and capability in the areas previously listed. Along with the greater location capabilities, clients will also be able to take advantage of multizone Kubernetes clusters across the availability zones through the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service. The service has simplified how the experience is deployed and managed.
The scope of IBM’s cloud footprint comes at a critical time, with clients looking to achieve better control of their data with data regulations facing tighter regulations.
“The world’s biggest companies work with IBM to migrate them to the cloud because we know their technology and unique business needs as they bridge their past with the future. Our continued cloud investment and growing client roster reflect that companies are increasingly seeking hybrid cloud environments that offer cutting-edge tools including AI, analytics, IoT and blockchain to maximize their benefits.”
