As part of its $1.2 billion investment to expand its cloud services, IBM today announced the opening of its first cloud center in Mexico. Located in Querétaro, near Mexico City, the new facility strengthens IBM Cloud's presence in Latin America by offering data residency within the region, even more redundancy in the Americas, and the complete SoftLayer platform, enabling customers to create their ideal fully integrated, scalable cloud computing environment in Mexico.

The new facility further extends IBM's global cloud footprint, which includes new cloud centers recently launched in FrankfurtTokyoParisMelbourneTorontoLondonTexas, VirginiaHong Kong, and more, all of which opened in the last year. With industry experts predicting that Latin America will see more than 25 percent growth in the cloud-computing business within the next three years, the Mexico cloud center gives IBM a powerful anchor in the local cloud market.

The Mexico City facility will support the region's growth by providing a local cloud center in which to keep location-sensitive data and workloads closer to Mexican and Latin American customers and end users. It also broadens data redundancy options within the Americas by enabling backups that can be replicated and seamlessly integrated in any of IBM's SoftLayer cloud centers via SoftLayer's leading private network, with free unmetered bandwidth between locations.
