IBM updates and modernizes its data centers to increase performance. Older IBM data centers in Dallas and Houston (D2, D6, D7, H2) were decided to be closed on 31 August 2020. These data center closures will be taking place on 30 October 2020, according to the latest announcement. These closures are part of the data center modernization strategy for IBM Cloud.
To increase the performance
“Through coordination with our vendors, we’ve also secured an extension for select facilities in Dallas, Melbourne, and Seattle. For DAL07, MEL01, and SEA01, data center closures are extended to 30 November 2020,” said IBM Cloud.
IBM’s D2, D6, D7, and H2 facilities in Dallas and Houston are no longer supported or available since October 30. These older data centers are unsuitable for upgrading. IBM customers must migrate their resources to a different data center. IBM will help to assist customers in their migration to modern data centers.
