IBM opens cloud data center in the Nordics

IBM (NYSE: IBM) has opened a new cloud data center in Fetsund, 30 km outside Oslo, Norway, the company said.

The IBM Cloud data center will support growing cloud adoption in the Nordics, giving customers throughout the region local access to a portfolio of IBM cloud services for running mission critical enterprise workloads.

EVRY, a Nordic IT services company, is leveraging these capabilities to accelerate its transformation and deliver business value to its clients, which was part of a strategic partnership announced last year. This includes establishing a private cloud solution enabling their clients to further drive innovation.

The facility in Norway is IBM´s 48th global cloud data center and the 12th in Europe. It is part of the company´s global data center network, enabling businesses, from large enterprises to start-ups, to digitalize business and operations, and drive innovation.
