From strategy to move-in ready, we can help plan,

Plan, design and build flexible, cost-effective data centers and facilities

Opportunities to deploy data centers that optimize availability, scalability, recoverability and agility—while also reducing risks in a cost-effective and time-efficient approach—remain strong across the lifecycle of a data center.

The demand for IT is exploding. And keeping up with that demand may be harder than you think. You need to provide support for application growth, new technology and new compute models while meeting increasing availability demands and containing capital and operating costs. IBM helps you address this demand with our data center site and facilities services. We can plan to optimize your data centers—whether you need assistance in making significant changes to your existing sites or with getting your new facilities move-in ready more quickly.
