IBM is the latest tech giant to open data centres in the Middle East to connect with companies and governments subject to strict data residency regulations. The company will use the facilities to provide managed services to enterprises based in Dubai and Abu Dhabi and help accelerate their journeys to hybrid cloud. “Through our data centres, we are helping organisations accelerate their move to hybrid cloud and interconnect different clouds … creating unified systems designed for increased consistency, automation and predictability,” said Hossam Seif El Din, vice president, enterprise and commercial at IBM MEA. The company joins cloud rivals AWS, Microsoft, Oracle and Alibaba Cloud in launching facilities in the Middle East.
