Great news on expansion of both LotusLive operations and the IBM SmartCloud offerings such as Domino...

IBM has boosted its cloud computing offerings in Japan with the opening of two data centers in that country, the company will announce today.
The first is located in Makuhari, Japan and will be devoted to IBM’s SmartCloud Enterprise service. ...
It’s the sixth data center for IBM’s SmartCloud. In March it said it would spend $38 million to build a data center in Singapore. Others are in Germany, Canada, and the United States. ...
IBM also announced that later this year it will open a second new data center in Japan, this one devoted to Lotus Live, its online messaging, social collaboration and meetings software, which is a rival of sorts to Microsoft’s Exchange and Office 365 as well as Google Apps. Among other things it will offer Japanese companies who for legal or other reasons aren’t allowed to host their data outside the country, use LotusLive. One big client I’m told is the electronics company Panasonic.

The Japan data center operations for LotusLive will be similar to what we already operate for the current LotusLive data centers -- a multi-cluster multi-tenant implementation specifically within Japan. All LotusLive services will be available.
