    [EN] SoftLayer em Montreal(ish)

    IBM has opened a SoftLayer data center in Drummondville, an hour outside of Montreal, Canada. The new data center follows a recent Toronto data center opened in August of last year.

    The facility is the latest as part of a $1.2 billion ongoing investment in its cloud business. The Drummondville data center is similar in scope and size to the recent Toronto facility, with room for more than 8,000 servers. While Toronto has long been publicly disclosed as one of the planned data centers, this facility is a recent addition to list of planned expansions.

    This is the fifth SoftLayer data center center launched in four months. The others are in France, Germany, Mexico and Japan. Other data centers expected in 2015 will be in Milan, Italy and Chennai India. At the time of acquisition SoftLayer had 13 data centers. Under IBM that total has more than doubled in short order.

    The data center expands customer capabilities when it comes building private, public or hybrid clouds, with the ability for in-country data redundancy in both Montreal and Toronto. Drummondville is an hour and a half away and is actually in a different seismic and climatic zone than Montreal.

    “The local presence of SoftLayer’s cloud center not only demonstrates the company’s significant investment in Québec, but also its unique ability to meet the needs of Canadian customers to quickly leverage untapped business models and services with cloud,” said Denis Desbiens, IBM Vice President, Quebec in a release

    The full suite of services is available including bare metal, virtual servers, storage, security services and networking. These services can be deployed on-demand with full remote access and control through a customer Web portal or API. Services also are available in French.

    “As the second-largest city in Canada, Montréal is a vital center of commerce and technology,” said Marc Jones, SoftLayer’s CTO, in a release. “Canada is an important market for IBM Cloud services and this new facility will provide regional customers with the security, resiliency, and scalability for placing demanding workloads in the cloud.”

    Montreal and the surrounding area features relatively low-cost clean hydro power. Montreal has great connectivity to New York, Toronto, and Europe.

    Last month, Cogeco said it was opening a 100,000 square foot data center in Montreal.

    O "nosso" é um tipo de 6,000 creches da Dilma. Sempre aparece no material de propaganda da IBM e ficará pronto em breve, após nevar no inferno.

    Eles anunciaram as primeiras vagas pra lá tem menos de 1 mês... 3 no total. Ainda falta muito. Essa negada tem que ser entrevistada, treinada...
    A título de curiosidade eu apliquei prum job desses lá em julho do ano passado. Até agora não contrataram para a posição.

    IBM opens Sydney SoftLayer data centre - Several months late to launch

    By Andrew Colley on Mar 11, 2015

    IBM is chasing Microsoft Azure by launching a second Australian point-of-presence (PoP) for its SoftLayer cloud business.

    The company opened its Melbourne facility - at a Digital Realty-owned site in Deer Park - last August as part of a $1.2 billion investment in cloud globally.

    At the time of the Melbourne announcement, IBM said it would also open a Sydney facility by October.

    IBM did not respond to request for detail on the delayed launch of the Sydney centre.

    It also declined to confirm which co-location provider it had partnered with in the city, beyond that it was “leasing space within an existing facility”.

    Multiple industry sources have told iTnews IBM has partnered with Global Switch to house its SoftLayer infrastructure in Ultimo.

    Like its Melbourne counterpart, the Sydney facility will host SoftLayer’s infrastructure-as-a-service offerings including bare metal servers, virtual servers, storage, security services and networking. SoftLayer has built its facilities around the world according to a standard “pod” design.

    The two facilities are among 40 that IBM plans to include in a cloud footprint spanning 15 countries in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia at a cost of $1.2 billion. It aimed to establish 15 of those new data centre sites last year.

    IBM acquired SoftLayer 18 months ago in a deal valued at $US2 billion.
