IBM Corp. announced today what the Armonk, New York-based company is calling its “largest launch ever” of new storage hardware, software and services that will help organizations transform static and segregated data into dynamic accessible information.
The proliferation of the mobile Web and the growth of Web 2.0 data and social networking is driving data growth and the need for infrastructures “to adapt today to meet this demand,” said IBM.
The initiative focuses on Internet-scale availability for infrastructures to manage the estimated two billion people who will be on the Web in 2011, IBM said. Also, a focus on better consolidation and retention of data to avoid duplication and associated energy costs. And, there’s a focus on security to help ensure data centres remain secure and companies avoid publicized data breaches.
