Ready for smarter computing? This vendor spotlight features Scott Hawkins, program manager, System x Marketing at IBM, talking about IBM offerings powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family. These solutions deliver increased performance and cloud and analytics capabilities across the IBM* x86 portfolio, and are designed to help IT managers overcome complexity through simplified management and support for heterogeneous environments.
“We can’t minimize the need for a high-performing infrastructure to effectively execute on cloud, analytics, and big data workloads,” explains Hawkins. “That’s why we love the dramatic increase in performance delivered by the Intel Xeon processor E5 family.” IBM leverages this performance gain to enable its cloud solutions and analytics capabilities to deliver increased scalability, improved networking, and increased bandwidth with improved I/O throughput. The solutions also offer better infrastructure security and data protection, reduced power requirements, and lower data center operations costs.
IBM’s long-standing relationship with Intel extends from the hardware level to IBM software, resulting in powerful solutions that really matter to customers.
