IBM to set up new Linux cloud for Africa

By

IBM has announced a new LinuxONE community cloud for Africa, to be hosted at its client centre in Johannesburg.

This follows a forecast by Frost & Sullivan that sub-Saharan Africa will be the second-largest mobile market by 2020, surpassing Europe and just behind Asia-Pacific.

Developers will be able to use the newly set up cloud free for 120 days.

IBM is also expanding its sales and support network of LinuxONE systems, its most powerful, in Africa.

Dr Salihu Dasuki, assistant professor of computing and applied sciences at the American University of Nigeria, said the new could would help to boost the open-source movement in Africa.

“Our students at the American University of Nigeria are advocates of open source systems, thus both our faculty and students will benefit immensely," he was quoted as saying in an IBM blog post.

"I'm hoping this opportunity will enable innovators and developers across Africa to participate more fully in the global open source community of developers."
