(The Hosting News) – Technology provider IBM recently capped off its 30 million dollars investment in Guadalajara city, Mexico, announcing on Wednesday that it had launched a Smarter Data Center in the area.
Just how intricate is the facility? Among its capabilities is something called intelligent data analytics, a feature the company emphasizes lets the data center’s tenants “prevent and anticipate critical events from impacting systems performance.”
“Supported by long term experience in data centers, we are proud to be able to offer to Mexican companies new opportunities to innovate and achieve greater competitive advantage. We aim to support Mexico’s and our clients’ development and capabilities, seeking to provide high transformational value and contribute to our Smarter Planet agenda,” commented IBM Mexico President and GM Hugo Santana in a press release.
Other features include virtual access tools, IT 3D tools covering infrastructure and more. And while the data center comes with a rather large price tag, it’s just one in an IBM infrastructure that already includes 400 other locations worldwide.
The opening follows another announcement in June in which IBM indicated that it had launched its IT Outsourcing Services Command Center, located in Mexico City. That location plays an integral factor in the new data center’s operation as the 600 square feet facility is connected to the command center.
And IBM isn’t ending things there. The company plans to further invest in the data center with already planned expansions that will eventually account for the data center covering 600 square meters. The tech provider provides a wide range of solutions including services that pertain to IT, business, outsourcing and training.
