IBM Canada Ltd. this week introduced the first cloud delivery centre in Canada in order to address the growing demand from enterprises to reduce costs, increase efficiencies and access new technologies such as analytics and mobile computing.

With the new $42 million IBM Compute Cloud Centre, Canadian businesses can securely develop, host and test applications while paying only for the computational power they use, the company said in a release. It added that confidential information is protected and kept securely resident in Canada in accordance with Canadian privacy laws.

“This is an innovation investment in Canada that will help Canadian businesses capture the promise of new computing models to drive productivity and increase competitiveness,” said Bruce Ross, president of IBM Canada.
