"Since October 2010 IBM Corp. announced workload-optimized systems to help companies manage a range of more demanding workloads that are placing new stresses on already over-taxed data centers.
The offerings, which span IBM's systems portfolio, represent IBM's
investment in systems integrated and optimized across chips, hardware
and software, for a range of work at a time when companies face amounts
of data and are under pressure to become more efficient in managing and
drawing timely insights from the information.
The new systems include: A new offering for the zEnterprise BladeCenter
Extension (zBX), IBM's systems design that allows workloads on mainframe
servers and other select systems to share resources and be managed as a
single, virtualized system; and key new Storage and System x products,
which can bring new levels of efficiency to the data center."
