IBM has opened a SoftLayer data center in Toronto. The data center follows recent launches in London and Hong Kong, and is part of IBM Cloud’s broader $1.2 billion investment aimed at extending its cloud services capabilities worldwide.
The Toronto data center has capacity for more than 15,000 physical servers and is based on a POD (Performance Optimized Data Center) concept. The facility connects directly into SoftLayer’s global network via a network Point of Presence (PoP) located in Toronto.
