IBM Opens First European Testing Site Switch And Networking Solutions

IBM has opened the IBM Bucharest Systems Laboratory, the company’s first European site for developing and testing IBM switch and networking hardware and software.

The Lab, which joins a network of IBM centers around the globe, will leverage the company’s 2010 acquisition of Blade Network Technologies and work on IBM’s products such as IBM Networking Operation System and IBM VMready software. The lab is expected to house over 125 engineers.

Located in the Bucharest Corporate Center, the new IBM lab will reside near another IBM facility, the IBM Business Analytics laboratory. That lab was established after IBM acquired Clarity Systems in 2010. Both facilities intend to work together.
