21Vianet Teams With IBM To Bring IBM's Managed Private Cloud To China

BEIJING and ARMONK, N.Y., Dec. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBM and 21Vianet Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:VNET) ("21Vianet") announced today that they have entered a definitive agreement to introduce IBM's premier private cloud infrastructure service and accelerate high value managed private cloud services to China.

This partnership brings IBM SmartCloud Enterprise+, a powerful, secure and scalable private cloud built on open standards, to China to keep up with the rising demand for managing more complex, mission-critical workloads and applications in the cloud for large enterprises throughout China. Pursuant to the agreement, IBM will provide the physical point of distribution (POD) and service while 21Vianet will host the POD facility at its data centers in Beijing.

Mr. Josh Chen, Chairman and CEO of 21Vianet, said, "IBM is a global leading enterprise-level cloud computing provider. What's more, IBM is a sincere partner, not only sharing its own technologies and services, but also growing together with us in business insights, management experience, operation and marketing etc. Through this cooperation, 21Vianet Group, Inc has not only strengthened its ability to accelerate business growth, but also comprehensively enhanced the service capability of its cloud computing."

Laurie Tropiano, General Manager of GTS, IBM GCG said: "Today, IBM and 21Vianet create the new era of enterprise cloud computing in China.  Our clients, the pillars of China's economy, will see IBM further accelerating its efforts around driving innovation in China with enhanced IBM cloud offerings as a platform. We are setting a new benchmark for cloud computing performance in China."

Cloud computing has become a mainstream delivery mechanism for information technology (IT) globally but is still in a nascent stage of adoption at the enterprise level. IBM's premier private cloud infrastructure and managed services can adapt to accommodate any workload with real-time performance and integrity that is trusted by enterprises around the world to enable business innovation and transformation.
