Scalability, Simplicity And Velocity On The Cards Of IBM’s New PureSystems Upgrade

Scalability, Simplicity and Velocity on the Cards of IBM’s New PureSystems Upgrade

Last week, International Business Machines (IBM) had rolled out an upgrade of its PureSystems in a push towards handling gargantuan terabytes of data with an ease and scalability not apparent in the previous edition. The team behind the upgrade has given a green light that the capacity for rummaging through major big data projects, like in stock exchanges, will seem like a walk in the park.

The major limb of the new product is the PureData System for Analytics, which is a marvelous offering for compiling information as well as analyzing historical strata of data on major niches. The NY Stock Exchange for example will be able to go back to the almost one decade’s worth of its past file repository and analyze a terabyte each twenty-four hours. The velocity is simply amazing, not forgetting that it will be eight hours on the edge in comparison with the existing framework.

The velocity of the IBM new system will have bedfellows in the scalability department. Companies now will have an agile way to pile up more information in margins of 50% over the previous. This means that each rack will be having a treasure-trove of data that one can crunch without experiencing system failure or slow response like never before. Thus scaling up the company’s financial or pure data potential will be a sell-out factor of efficiency.

The score of simplicity is now a settled matter for not just the large companies pitted with huge chunks of information, but new ones, too. This is what efficiency, as the PureSystem is scaling it, is all about. The System for Analytics will bring up a greater handling capacity while still keeping the information at manageable levels for the machines that are working at the given facility. Indeed, even small corporations can utilize this system which will enable them complete the following concrete steps:

  1. Test.

  2. Deploy and Orchestrate.

  3. Scale up and expand.

Many companies take herculean effort and unredeemable expense to test before deploying systems. With the new IBM product, this test is not necessary because it has surpassed the hacker-developer stage. In terms of deploying and orchestrating, speed quotient as it relates to efficiency has been the big issue to contend with. At least IBM comes with two solutions for this: scaling the rack capacity by a 50-percent margin in comparison with the forgoing provision and secondly, improving the speed by a factor of three times the current dispensation. The final answer, a point that most companies would consider the ultimate breakthrough, is to expand. Without having deployed successfully, there is no way a company can dream of expanding. Luckily, the scale up quotient of IBM has made it possible to make this a reality.

IBM foresees its PureSystems upgrade as a bridge towards hitting new markets including MSPs, where big data rules. It is no wonder then that a major Stock Exchange on the East Coast is making it big with this technology.

The upshot of the entire development is the fact that IBM has laid bare firms’ cloud weaknesses, big and small, and ensured that none goes it alone testing on unguaranteed services. In its 2010 report, IBM showed that at a time when the tech (big data) milieu of companies will have grown to $16.9b by 2015, ¾ of chief executives will have adopted cloud in their departments.
