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,

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.

IBM watsonx Assistant and NICE CXone combine capabilities for a new chapter in CCaaS

5 min read - In an age of instant everything, ensuring a positive customer experience has become a top priority for enterprises. When one third of customers (32%) say they will walk away from a brand they love after just one bad experience (source: PWC), organizations are now applying massive investments to this experience, particularly with their live agents and contact centers.  For many enterprises, that investment includes modernizing their call centers by moving to cloud-based Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) platforms. CCaaS solutions…

See what’s new in SingleStoreDB with IBM 8.0

3 min read - Despite decades of progress in database systems, builders have compromised on at least one of the following: speed, reliability, or ease. They have two options: one, they could get a document database that is fast and easy, but can’t be relied on for mission-critical transactional applications. Or two, they could rely on a cloud data warehouse that is easy to set up, but only allows lagging analytics. Even then, each solution lacks something, forcing builders to deploy other databases for…
