IBM Helps Seven Nova Scotia Schools Install Private Cloud for Analytics Classes

IBM-logo, ExecutivemosaicIBM is providing a private cloud to a consortium of seven schools in Nova Scotia, Canada with the goal of helping the schools create a new curriculum for developing analytics skills.

The cloud is intended to go live in early 2014 and will be hosted at Dalhousie University, IBM announced Wednesday.

Faculty and students at the Acadia University, Cape Breton University, Mount Saint Vincent University, Nova Scotia Community College, Saint Mary’s University and St. Francis Xavier University will use the cloud.

The open source cloud is based on IBM Flex System and IBM Storwize hardware and is designed to run on the Apache Software Foundation Virtual Computing Lab software.

IBM signed an agreement with the government of Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia Business and the consortium of post-secondary education institutions on Nov. 8 to help further develop analytics skills in the province.
