New IBM Data Center in North Carolina Engineered to Support Cloud Computing

Today IBM (NYSE: IBM) opened a new data center designed to support new compute models like cloud computing, to help clients from around the world operate smarter businesses, organizations and cities. The new data center reduces technology infrastructure costs and complexity for clients while improving quality and speeding the deployment of services – using only half the energy required of a similar facility its size. The data center will ultimately total 100,000 square feet at IBM's Research Triangle Park (RTP) campus and is part of a $360 million investment by the corporation to build the new data center in North Carolina. IBM owns or operates more than 450 data centers worldwide. Available multimedia includes an edited package as well as footage from the Green Data Center and soundbites from VP of Cloud Services Ric Telford.
