As part of the announcement, IBM introduced a series of global enterprises clients turning to IBM to tap into new opportunities with cloud in industries ranging from telecommunications, publishing and security:
Korean e-publishing company, Artgrafii, has deployed its platform that creates and distributes professional content on the IBM Cloud to enable it to store, edit and manage online content more effectively as it expands outside of Korea.

IBM is partnering with one of the Netherland’s largest telecommunications services providers, KPN, to extend its cloud services in the Dutch market.
- With data center capacity across the Netherlands, IBM will provide KPN and their end users cloud services that not only meet in-country data residency requirements, but will also offer them the ultimate choice between three infrastructure-as-a-service delivery models: bare metal servers, single-tenant virtual machines and multi-tenant virtual machines.
