IBM Vietnam and its partners conducted annual smart technology expo and conference dubbed Smarter Computing in new information technology era on May 5 in Hanoi and May 12 in Ho Chi Minh City.
The expo and conference aims to update breakthrough innovation to customers, partners such as VMware, Intel, Redhat, Emerson, Digiland, HPT, Amigo and CMC and enterprises in different sectors. The smarter computing is defined in this new era once any enterprise can reverse IT conundrum by designing, training and managing their IT infrastructure.
IBM Vietnam showcased new workload-optimised Power7 systems, including a performance boost to the Power 750 -- the same server used in Watson, the Jeopardy! winner -- that provides even faster processing capability than each machine used in the computer genius.
The new Power blades and upgraded Power servers are built to manage the world's most demanding emerging applications, used in healthcare management, financial services, scientific research and more. The specialised demands of these new applications rely on processing an enormous number of concurrent transactions and data while analysing that information in real time.
Market research studies show that more and more clients are choosing to run their businesses on IBM Power Systems. According to research company International Data Company or IDC, IBM extended its lead in the UNIX servers in the fourth quarter of 2010 by capturing 53.9 percent revenue share of that segment, gaining 5.9 points of share over competitors and leading the second-place vendor by more than 30 per cent.
"Our strategy appears to be paying off as more and more customers choose Power Systems," said Tom Rosamilia, general manager of IBM Power and Systems. "Power announcements demonstrate IBM's ongoing investment in workload-optimised servers. Just two short months after publically demonstrating the future of computing with Watson and its advanced analytical and learning capabilities, IBM is upping the ante with a performance bump in the underlying system."
