IBM is opening new cloud data centers designed to provide greater control and security of data for the US Federal government. The data centers are designed specifically for Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) and Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), and IBM is completing these certifications requirements. The new data centers come as part of IBM's $1.2 billion commitment to expand its global cloud operations in all major geographies and financial centers. By the end of 2014, IBM will operate 40 data centers across five continents, and will double SoftLayer cloud capacity. The highly secure SoftLayer data centers will initially have capacity for 30,000 servers and a robust private network infrastructure designed to support 2,000 gigabytes per second of connectivity between them.
