Together, Intel and IBM Cloud are helping businesses operate a more high-performing environment.

Today, Intel® launched 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors to the world, and IBM simultaneously brought these newest advancements in microarchitecture onto IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers.

Technology must deliver value, and modern technology must anticipate and exceed what’s to come around the corner. I may be a bit biased, but compute performance—in the grand scheme of cloud computing—is one of the most important investments businesses can make to stay ahead of the curve. Why? Because meeting the requirements of modern workloads all boils down to how optimized your compute capabilities really are.

Assembling individually optimized processors, systems and software uniquely tailored for a specific situation tend to only get an IT team so far until they hit a wall of complexities as the workload varieties increase. Making a passive investment that meets cloud compute requirements for a wide variety of deployments (now and in the future) can yield gains on how quickly you time workloads to market and how many resources it takes to get them out the door.

“IBM and Intel’s collaboration on 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors puts Simple Cloud in a unique position to take advantage of accelerated compute performance for our partners and customers. We look forward to bringing advanced microarchitecture features into the hands of our most popular workloads, like BIM workflows for customers like Elecnor.” – Sergio Gonzalez, President, SimpleCloud.io

Ecosystem partnership with 4th Gen Intel® Xeon Scalable processors and IBM Cloud

4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors on IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers are designed to deliver true, optimized performance across some of the fastest-growing workload types in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), analytics, cloud, microservices, networking, databases and storage. Let’s break down the basics.

IBM Hybrid Cloud Mesh and Red Hat Service Interconnect: A new era of app-centric connectivity 

2 min read - To meet customer demands, applications are expected to be performing at their best at all times. Simultaneously, applications need to be flexible and cost effective, and therefore supported by an underlying infrastructure that is equally reliant, performant and secure as the applications themselves.   Easier said than done. According to EMA's 2024 Network Management Megatrends report only 42% of responding IT professionals would rate their network operations as successful.   In this era of hyper-distributed infrastructure where our users, apps, and data…

IBM named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM, for the 14th consecutive time

3 min read - Security operations is getting more complex and inefficient with too many tools, too much data and simply too much to do. According to a study done by IBM, SOC team members are only able to handle half of the alerts that they should be reviewing in a typical workday. This potentially leads to missing the important alerts that are critical to an organization's security. Thus, choosing the right SIEM solution can be transformative for security teams, helping them manage alerts…

IBM and MuleSoft expand global relationship to accelerate modernization on IBM Power 

2 min read - As companies undergo digital transformation, they rely on APIs as the backbone for providing new services and customer experiences. While APIs can simplify application development and deliver integrated solutions, IT shops must have a robust solution to effectively manage and govern them to ensure that response times and costs are kept low for all applications. Many customers use Salesforce’s MuleSoft, named a leader by Gartner® in full lifecycle API management for seven consecutive times, to manage and secure APIs across…
