IBM has announced plans to invest £2 million into a new Collocation data centre at its Greenock facility in Scotland.

IBM’s new data centre will provide services to help mid-sized businesses consolidate and centralize their IT infrastructures in a single location. This will allow enterprises to significantly reduce their costs and staff management time.

The centre will offer IBM equipment such as energy efficient cooling, resilient internet connections, 24 hour security, electric infrastructure backed up by diesel generators, CCTV and alarm monitoring.

“This new service aims to offer quick financial returns to a medium sized business by removing the challenge of securing and maintaining their data centers, so potential savings can be ploughed back into their business. IBM has the skills to run, manage and monitor client IT, ensuring information is secure at all times,” says Alex Reardon, director, General Business Sector, UK & Ireland for IBM.

The Greenock data centre will be built in accordance with IBM's strategic green data centre standards and apply best practices in cooling and power management.
