IBM today announced new IBM Power E1080 server, the first in a new family of servers based on the new IBM Power10 processor, designed specifically for hybrid cloud environments. The IBM Power10-equipped E1080 server is developed to help clients operate a secured, frictionless hybrid cloud experience across their entire IT infrastructure.
The IBM Power E1080 server’s launch is termed critical as organizations around the world continue to adapt to unpredictable changes in consumer behaviors and needs, they need a platform that can deliver their applications and insights securely where and when they need them. The IBM Institute of Business Value’s 2021 CEO Study found that, of the 3,000 CEOs surveyed, 56% emphasized the need to enhance operational agility and flexibility when asked what they’ll most aggressively pursue over the next two to three years.
Ravi Jain, Director – Server Sales, IBM India/South Asia said, “The more than expected duration of the pandemic has created heightened urgency in execution for businesses across industries. Organizations need to move with speed, agility, and the flexibility to react to changes in their customers’ needs in real-time while driving innovation and staying ahead of the competition. To achieve such agility, there will be an increasing mix of workloads on-premise and off-premise. While the latter is predominantly cloud-native, the former is getting transformed at a fast pace.”
“The newly launched IBM Power E1080 server is designed to be the backbone of a hybrid cloud platform that can provide maximum inter-operability and control to the clients. It will help for seamless deployment of workloads across the hybrid platform as well as faster development of new cloud-native applications, helping enterprises in India to scale their operation and deliver enhanced services to their customers. We see opportunity from BFSI, Telecom, Manufacturing, Retail and Healthcare sectors for the IBM Power10 servers in India and our ecosystem partners will be an integral part of our go-to-market strategy. As part of our go-to-market strategy for Power10 server, we will also be reaching out to Independent Software Vendors who work with clients in a garage format to implement their solution through IBM servers.” Ravi Jain, Director – Server Sales, IBM India/South Asia.”
Quote from Deepak Sarda, CTO, Indian Bank said, “IBM played a critical role as a technology partner during the merger of erstwhile Allahabad Bank with Indian Bank. With the amalgamation, IBM’s enterprise-class Power servers and storage helped us address critical business requirements like multi-fold increase in transaction volumes, back-end processing load, resiliency, high availability & scalability across the deployed solution. This has become the strong foundation for ensuring an overall enhanced experience for our customers. IBM has pro-actively taken steps to fine-tune the OS parameters for achieving optimum performance for the Core Banking Operations on the IBM Power Systems. All of this was well planned and executed even during the peak pandemic time.” said Deepak Sarda, CTO, Indian Bank.”
