There is no denying that the world is going digital. At IBM we have been helping organizations to modernize their IT infrastructure and data management, tapping into advanced analytics and real-time insights for competitive advantage. If your organization is one of many currently undergoing digital transformation, and you are investigating how your business can benefit from the adoption of a cloud strategy, our initiative with Nutanix will bring you new options.
Modernizing your data center and embarking on a path to cloud doesn’t need to be complicated, nor should it be a hassle. But there are many aspects to modernization and cloud adoption that organizations should consider, such as infrastructure choice and cloud-optimized software solutions. What if you could build and manage an enterprise cloud with ease and simplicity? Would you sign up for better economics and less complexity? I know I would.
For those reasons, IBM is collaborating with Nutanix with plans to help our clients both modernize and simplify the data center while also bringing in value-add infrastructure. We want to help clients revolutionize their data center and get to the cloud so they can adapt to evolving business and industry demands. With this collaboration, we are striving to bring you new options and to provide the simple but robust infrastructure and solutions that your organization needs for success.
What IBM will bring to the table: Infrastructure designed for the cognitive era
IBM will bring its Power Systems platform to this initiative. These robust servers are designed to deliver high performance and are security-rich. They can provide the availability needed for data-intensive workloads, readying your organization for the cognitive era. Designed to deliver efficiency whether deployed in a private, public and hybrid cloud, Power Systems benefit from a wide range of open technologies, many stemming from collaboration with fellow OpenPOWER Foundation members.
