IBM announces new family of "expert integrated systems"
Apr 11, 2012 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) --
IBM (NYSE:IBM) announced on Wednesday the introduction of a new category of "expert integrated systems."
IBM said that its expert integrated systems family - PureSystems - is the result of USD2bn in R&D and acquisitions over four years. The new systems family offers clients an alternative to today's enterprise computing model, where multiple and disparate systems require resources to set up and maintain.
With the introduction of the new product family, IBM is unveiling three advances that are designed to enable businesses to reduce the high costs and complexity associated with managing information technology.
With PureSystems, IBM is introducing a new concept in system design that integrates the server, storage and networking into an automated, simple-to-manage machine. Scale-in design provides for increased density, as PureSystems can handle twice as many applications compared to some IBM systems, doubling the computing power per square foot of data centre space.
IBM is also embedding technology and industry expertise through software that allows the systems to automatically handle basic, time-consuming tasks such as configuration, upgrades, and application requirements.
In addition, all PureSystems family members are built for the cloud, enabling corporations to quickly create private, self-service cloud offerings that can scale up and down automatically.
The first two models of the PureSystems family - PureFlex System and PureApplication System - start shipping to customers in Q2 2012. No pricing details were disclosed.
