IBM announced a major step forward in a new, simpler era of computing with the introduction of a new category of “expert integrated systems”, by launching in April Pure Systems, which now is available also in Romania. IBM’s expert integrated systems family – PureSystems – is the result of USD 2 billion in R&D and acquisitions over four years, an unprecedented move by IBM to integrate all IT elements, both physical and virtual, as Michael Paier, General Manager IBM SEE& Acting CGM of IBM Romania said in a press conference yesterday. The PureData System is the next step forward in IBM’s overall strategy to deliver a family of systems with built-in expertise that leverages its decades of experience to reduce the cost and complexity associated with information technology. Customers can use the new PureData System for high performance data services for traditional or cloud environments. Clients can have the system up and running in 24 hours, run complex analytics in minutes and handle more than 100 databases on a single system. IBM is unveiling three workload-specific models of the PureData System: PureData System for Transactions, PureData System for Analytics, PureData System for Operational Analytics. IBM PureSystems also includes PureApplication and PureFlex Systems. The PureFlex System enables organizations to more efficiently create and manage an infrastructure, while the PureApplication System helps organizations reduce the cost and complexity of rapidly deploying and managing applications.
