Cloud Carib Ltd.Cloud computing firm Cloud Carib has become the first company in Latin America and the Caribbean to gain Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Iaas) certification from IT giant VMware–allowing it to host virtual data centres and offer businesses more efficient IT services, reduced electricity costs and flexible billing.

Based in The Bahamas, Cloud Carib helps companies transform their IT infrastructure by moving their data to the “cloud” where it can be stored remotely. This allows for more streamlined services, reduced administrative costs and greater data capacity.


Using VMware’s vCloud platform, Cloud Carib can securely host and maintain all aspects of a client’s IT infrastructure. It is specifically targetted towards businesses that rely on a secure, compliant and efficient system such as banks, government agencies and law firms.

“We are introducing a proven, world-class offering to the Caribbean market enabling firms that are looking to take advantage of the latest best-in-class cloud technologies supported by VMware, without the associated up-front capital investment,” says Cloud Carib advisory board member Anthony Giorgi.

In assisting clients with becoming “cloud ready,” Cloud Carib also provides a cloud migration service. The company’s new offshore cloud Iaas product is offered with limited availability–existing clients will have priority access, with additional slots offered in 2013.

According to market intelligence firm, International Data Corp, worldwide spending on professional services related to building or implementing cloud services revenue will grow 44 per cent over the next five years–reaching $16.7 billion in 2015.

The parent company of the New York Stock Exchange is to be sold to smaller rival Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) for $8 billion. Atlanta-based ICE is offering cash and shares for NYSE Euronext, although the deal will need regulatory approval.

Cruise passenger numbers are expected to increase significantly over the festive period as The Bahamas heads into high season. Watch an interview with Patrick McNeil, port controller, here.
