September 24, 2008 - IBM opened four new cloud computing centers in emerging markets.

 

The new centers are in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Bangalore, India, Seoul, Korea and Hanoi, Vietnam, where there is an increasing demand for Internet-based computing models and skills to help companies compete in highly competitive environments. IBM now has 13 cloud computing centers.
