Bell, IBM Deliver New Cloud Abilities to Canadian Businesses

Bell Business Markets and IBM this week announced a partnership to expand the cloud computing services available through Bell Business Cloud.

This partnership will give businesses across Canada access to the IBM Cloud via a private connection from Bell, simplifying the way customers adopt and build out their hybrid clouds.

More and more organizations are looking for a reliable and secure connection to the cloud, that doesn’t rely on sending data over the public Internet, says IBM. Bell’s Business Cloud addresses this issue by enabling enterprises to plug into the IBM Cloud, giving them direct access to a range of on-demand computing and storage options.

“Bell is an established leader in data hosting and cloud computing, providing customers with exceptional support from an expert nationwide team,” said Tom Little, President, Bell Business Markets. “With businesses of all kinds increasingly relying on cloud services for their mission critical applications, adding IBM Cloud services to Bell Business Cloud provides customers with the seamless integration, security and dependability they expect and require.”

“The world’s appetite for data is increasing and with this comes a greater need for organizations to support cloud workloads. IBM Cloud is the leading platform for data-driven cloud and analytics that enables organizations to open the doors to more responsive and innovative ways of doing business,” said Nevil Knupp, VP of Cloud, IBM Canada. “IBM Cloud supports Bell’s new client offerings to help companies gain more control of their data, improve application performance and efficiencies with enhanced collaboration, centralize IT management, reduce costs and achieve greater efficiencies.”

Bell’s Business Cloud in partnership with IBM is available across the country to all mid and large businesses.
