The US$8 million data center will allow local companies to transform their front office business operations and benefit from significant efficiencies through cloud computing and Big Data analytics.

"Our extensive experience in data centers offer private and public  institutions in Peru new ways to innovate, build smarter systems and gain competitive advantages that contribute to their business growth and sustainability," said Ricardo Fernandez, IBM Peru General Manager.

The new data center has the highest availability offered in Peru. It is the third IBM facility in the country, complementing an existing data center at the Technology Campus of La Molina and another in the district of San Isidro in Lima.

"IBM has heavily invested in strengthening its processes, tools, analytic capabilities and skills, which are key to ensure excellence in the delivery of IT services to our customers,"said Rodolfo Armellini, IBM Peru Global Technology Services Manager.

The opening of the new data center is part of IBM's commitment to Peru, where IBM has continuously operated for more than 81 years. In the past 10 years, the company has invested US$38 million in Peru – including this new data center.

IBM has made multi-million-dollar investments in Latin America since 2009, opening nine IT Services Centers in Brazil, Mexico, Costa Rica, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Uruguay, which provide 24/7 services. Globally, IBM has more than 400 data centers.
