IBM to invest $1 billion in data centres

IBM said it was to invest $1 billion to build and expand data centres around the world as as part of a wider effort to boost revenue from emerging markets. "This $1 billion plus multi-year campaign is twofold -- improve the design and technology used in client data centers and expand geographic reach," IBM said on Friday when opening a new centre in Wroclaw, southwestern Poland.The company did not provide a timeframe for the investment target.

Here is an hint of how well they are aligning themselves for the future revolution, one of the concept which i feel personally gaining acceptance is the CLOUD COMPUTING, will not be suprised to see others players following IBM's footsteps.
