On Dec. 18, IBM Korea revealed that its cloud services have become one of the top contributors to local companies' overseas expansion.
According to IBM, local companies like Davich Optical Chain Store, Hancom, and SK Planet successfully penetrated global markets in the U.S., Europe, and Turkey through SoftLayer. Small and medium-sized enterprises like Enkiwi and Acroverse Creative also adopted IBM's business models and services.
The company explained that it provides high-performance cloud services through effective network services with global infrastructure.
IBM Korea made a 1.3 trillion won (US$1.2 billion) of investment this year, established new cloud data centers in Mexico, Canada, Japan, and Germany, and secured 40 cloud data centers worldwide as a result.
In addition, the server vendor recently forged a partnership with the world's largest IBX data center & co-location provider Equinix, which helps IBM Korea provide more stable services.
