Blade.Org Announces New Solutions
“Blade.org has envisioned ‘Mega Trends’ that will shape the data center of the future. These over-arching themes, converged networks, advanced energy efficiency, and hyper-consolidation, are focal points for the organization, around which its members are collaborating to address customers’ IT issues and challenges,” said Jed Scaramella, Research Analyst for IDC. The new solutions include:
A new Reuters Market Data System solution for the financial services industry improves the efficiency of automated trading by a matter of milliseconds - a difference that can be measured in millions of dollars.
A new low energy solution for small-business environments builds on the low power use of the IBM BladeCenter S system
The green data center management suite is a software solution that enables a single view of a data center’s IT and physical infrastructure. It combines IBM Tivoli Monitoring with APC’s ISX Central and Schneider Electrics’ TAC software platforms to help users understand the level of energy consumption from both servers and non-IT assets in the data center.
