To expand business more data centres will be created
IBM Planning to expand its cloud computing signature across Brazil by supporting infrastructure through its several data centres which will create multiple regions. Right now IBM operates just one dada canter out of Sao Paulo, but it assured that the company will expand to the multi-zone region (MZR) within a year. This will help the customer to replicate their servers automatically across different data centres in the same geographical area.
IBM also informed that 80% of the companies in South America run their critical operations without the cloud. The company did not clarify its idea of building more data centres in Brazil to increase multi-zone regions. It also has 6 MZRs around the world, which are connected to three data centres which operate in the US, Europe, Japan and Australia.
The hybrid solutions will we provided
IBMs multi-zone region in South America is going to be a hybrid and the concept will include its own system with customers and other service providers. Ana Paula Assis, GM of IBM Latin America said, “The cloud market is being redefined as a hybrid.”
The multi-zone is the term used by IBM to describe its computing grid that abstracts multiple data centres into a single virtual service. The service will support failover backup system in disaster recovery and bring balance to computing loads by using different data centres to its customers business. The three independent zones would be made available to Sao Paulo MZR and each will have its own cooling, networking and power
It will support the AI system of IBM Watson, blockchain, internet-of-things and data analytics with normal cloud services. It also backs the open-source Kubernetes platform. The two clients of IBM the international food giant BRF and Brazilian legal software supplier Elaw are aggressively rooting for such type of cloud services in South America.
