Cloud computing has become a strong alternative to in house data centers for a large percentage of all enterprise needs. Most enterprises are adopting some form of could computing, with some estimates that as high as 90 % are putting workloads into a public cloud infrastructure. The whitepaper, Empowering Cloud Utilization with Cloud Bursting is an excellent summary of various options for enterprises that are planning for using a public cloud infrastructure.
Today IBM that it is opening a new Cloud Data Center in Johannesburg, South Africa. The new cloud center is the result of a close collaboration with Gijima and Vodacom and is designed to support cloud adoption and customer demand across the continent. IBM will provide clients with a complete portfolio of cloud services for running enterprise and as a service workloads.
