IBM announced in a brief press release its intention to open a data center IBM SoftLayer Cloud in Paris. This should see the light of day during the second quarter of 2014.

In mid-January, the American group, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary this year, announced that it would once again invest $ 1.2 billion globally to “strengthen its borrowing in the cloud”. In all, it should open about fifteen data centers around the world in order to reach a final goal of 40 sites.

This strategy is part of a strategy to strengthen the firm in the data storage sector while it claims to have already invested $ 7 billion since 2007 in the cloud computing. She estimates this market at 200 billion dollars by 2020 (IBM Market Intelligence).
