AustraliaIBM is chasing Microsoft Azure by launching a second Australian point-of-presence (PoP) for its SoftLayer cloud business. The company opened its Melbourne facility – at a Digital Realty-owned site in Deer Park – last August as part of a $1.2 billion investment in cloud globally. At the time of the Melbourne announcement, IBM said it would also open a Sydney facility by October. IBM did not respond to request for detail on the delayed launch of the Sydney centre.
