Security, data privacy, and compliance were among the key reasons for the Danish cloud-service company any.cloud to collaborate with IBM Cloud. Aspiring to expand globally, this was a perfect match to optimize its local services whilst still living up to its high standards of quality and client satisfaction. The cloud-provider partnership with IBM induced any.cloud to shift its focus to innovation and business growth, enabling them to today offer its services of e.g. backup, disaster recovery and applications from 60 IBM data centers around the world.
With the use of IBM Cloud, any.cloud achieved three main results that helped them grow significantly:
New customers: expanding to various industries in more than 30 countries
Increased revenue: freeing staff to focus on innovation and develop new services
Gained flexibility: swiftly scaling up or down based on customer requirements
IBM alleviates any.cloud’s demands for expansion by providing uptime, availability, and knowhow on building infrastructure. This allows for them to solely spend time on their customers and fields of expertise; i.e. the services delivered via IBM Cloud. Specifically, IBM Cloud bare metal servers are applied to support business continuity and IBM Cloud Object Storage technology as its unstructured data storage service. Furthermore, since May 2019, IBM and any.cloud have offered ReTrust; an identity and detection intelligence service based on the technology of IBM Trusteer Rapport. It expands the Trusteer platform beyond the banking industry, so other types of businesses can secure their online assets and customers. To avoid digital fraud and create digital trust, it also offers behavioural biometrics.
Benefitting from the continuous support of IBM
Consequently, it is safe to say that IBM Cloud has empowered any.cloud to now have a strong presence in industries such as legal, distribution, pharmaceutical, and banking organizations from both the Danish and global market. Such scalability has also prompted their services to be characterized by high availability and quick implementation. IBM Cloud has been able to accommodate any.cloud’s high standards for certified security, local access, and low latency, with continuously putting a technical support team at their disposal.
The cloud services and IT consulting of IBM’s business partner, any.cloud, cover three companies in Denmark, Poland, and the Czech Republic that serve over 500 customers with the help of more than 3,100 virtual machines.
The IBM Cloud services are undoubtedly growing at a fast pace, whereas this collaboration with a multicloud service provider like any.cloud merely represents a fraction of the services’ immense potential to impact the tech industry on a global scale.

Just like electricity changed the last centuries for the better, AI will transform this era. AI can help society scale new heights – making us healthier, more prosperous and more sustainable. But as we celebrate and anticipate AI’s enormous potential for economic and social good, there are - as with any new wave of technology - questions and concerns.
From a criminal viewpoint, cybercrime has grown into an international and profitable business, one among other business fields. Behind data breaches one can usually find hacker groups supported by authoritarian governments, independent criminal groups or individuals skilled in information technology who have fallen onto the wrong side of the law, whose day jobs involve scanning through corporate web interfaces for gaps the size of a single line of code or malware.
