IBM Opens Cloud Data Center in Norway - its First in Nordics

IBM inaugurated a cloud data center in Fetsund, 30 km outside Oslo, Norway. The facility is IBM’s 48th global cloud data center and the 12th in Europe.

The IBM Cloud data center will support growing cloud adoption in the Nordics, providing the complete portfolio of IBM cloud services for running mission critical enterprise workloads, including IBM Bluemix, Watson and analytics capabilities.

EVRY, a leading Nordic IT services company, is already 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.

“We are committed to providing global and local clients the fastest and easiest onramp to the IBM Cloud to accelerate their digital transformation,” said Robert LeBlanc, senior vice president of IBM Cloud. “This investment will provide Nordic customers, especially those in regulated industries, with more flexibility to manage and gain insight into data within the region.”
