IBM supports Nubity to boost cloud services biz


Business IT vendor IBM said it’s supporting Nubity, a start-up in Mexico, to become a global provider of cloud services.

Nubity, a part of IBM and SoftLayer’s partner programs, expects 100 percent year-over-year growth through 2015, focusing on clients in Mexico, Colombia and the United States. Earlier, Nubity was part of the SoftLayer Catalyst program.


The cloud services company has operation headquarters in Mexico and Argentina. IBM said Nubity has service deployment coverage throughout every country in Latin America. Nubity has grown more than 600 percent since the end of 2012. It serves clients for more than 10 countries in Latin America, Europe and the US, in e-commerce, media, advertising and marketing industries.

Nubity utilizes SoftLayer to provide on-demand consumption service to integrate and monitor public and private cloud deployments through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. Enterprise customers can access a strategic dashboard that provides alerts for corrective actions and on-time delegation of server management as they migrate to cloud.

“We have found a technological partner in IBM with which we count on every time we start a new project or a daring idea,” said Dario Peña, CEO and co-founder of Nubity.

IBM has assisted Nubity to gain access to new markets through IBM Cloud marketplace. IBM’s cloud infrastructure SoftLayer enabled Nubity to scale out its cloud infrastructure and lower its bandwidth costs.
