Cloud computing gathers in China
IBM will establish the first Cloud Computing Center for software companies in China, in Wuxi. The center will let emerging Chinese software companies tap into a virtual computing environment to support their development activities.
Cloud computing links together large pools of computing systems to provide information technology services. With cloud computing, corporate data centers operate more like the Internet, sharing and accessing virtual resources.
“Cloud computing is helping to foster the growth of new software companies in China,” said Steve Mills, Senior Vice President and Group Executive, IBM Software Group. “Like many new software companies seeking growth opportunities both locally and abroad, these Chinese software companies will rely on technical infrastructures built on open standards and delivered as a service. This open approach to computing will help them deliver innovation and pursue global market opportunities.”
IBM has a significant research and development presence in China, with more than 3,200 IBM engineers and scientists in Beijing and Shanghai.
