IBM has accelerated its Smarter Computing initiative by announcing a broad array of performance and efficiency enhancements to its storage and technical computing systems - the engines of Big Data.
As part of its ongoing Smarter Computing effort, IBM has announced a new strategic approach to designing and managing storage infrastructures with greater automation and intelligence, as well as significant performance enhancements to several key storage systems and the Tivoli Storage Productivity Centre suite. At the same time, the company also announced its first offerings that incorporate software from IBM’s acquisition of Platform Computing earlier this year.
"Smarter Storage is an approach to the design, deployment and management of storage infrastructures. It is a more intelligent, efficient and automated approach that fundamentally changes the way we think about storage. We will enable organizations to take control of their storage, gain more valuable insights from their data, and ultimately deliver more value to the business," said Subroto Das, Vice-President, Storage, IBM India South Asia.
