Biggest IBM News of 2005

IBM Announcements - Tuesday, July 26

IBM, the world’s largest computer maker, today outlined a strategy to further accelerate its share gains in the $85 billion dollar market for computing systems. It said it would deliver new ultra-secure technologies that facilitate sharing of servers, storage and networking gear and help businesses collaborate more securely and efficiently.

IBM said the strategy is in response to a dramatic rise in collaboration between companies and institutions that has begun to blur the traditional lines of Information Technology.

The company said the demand is global in nature and will require that traditional transaction processing by computers be augmented by a collaborative processing approach that more tightly and securely integrates technology, processes and personnel.

IBM will focus on technologies like virtualization, embedded open standards and encryption that ease these connections and enable computer systems to share information securely and in real-time inside a business. The goal - - enable companies in various industries to become on demand enterprises -- working more seamlessly and securely with each other on business applications ranging from automobile design to discovering new medicines.

Key components of IBM’s strategy include:

· New Ultra-secure Mainframe Doubles Power, Encrypts Personal Data
IBM today introduced the most sophisticated, secure computing system ever - the IBM System z9 mainframe - which will act as a hub to help businesses collaborate more efficiently with each other to fend off all known security threats.

The new z9 mainframe is the result of a three-year, $1.2 billion-dollar development effort aimed at the emerging market for systems that can be more easily shared without compromising the security of customer identities and personal data.

The z9 mainframe is a breakthrough in computer security. For the first time, the identities of consumers and their personal information can be encrypted not only on the mainframe, but also wherever the information is stored, including tapes. The loss and theft of tapes with personal data has recently made headlines and caused consumer concern around the world.

The z9 will deliver two key capabilities: the ability to encrypt tapes frequently shared between companies protecting consumer identities and personal information AND to provide a facility to centrally manage encryption keys - thus totally safeguarding data for decades or more.

A huge system, the z9 mainframe is equipped with massive processing capabilities twice as powerful as its predecessor - the T-Rex mainframe. The z9 also boasts twice the capacity and twice the memory of T-Rex.

The z9 mainframe possesses the most sophisticated microprocessor ever made. A fully configured 54-way IBM System z9 has 18 billion transistors. That's three for every person on the planet.
· New Technology to Virtualize Computing Resources
IBM today introduced sophisticated technology that allows customers to use a console to pool, manage and optimize their IT resources across servers, networking gear and storage to vastly improve the economics and operations of under-utilized IT assets.

Called Virtualization Engine 2.0, the technology is a giant leap forward in virtualizing computing systems, enabling virtualization for the first time across an entire enterprise and beyond. Virtualization Engine 2.0 uses open interfaces, virtualization building blocks and Web services to connect IBM and select non-IBM server and storage systems.

Virtualization Engine 2.0 will integrate with technologies from industry leaders including Cisco, VMware and Network Appliance, enabling customers to expand the pool of information sharing across the datacenter.

· Intent to Form Blade.org with Industry Leaders
IBM today announced its intention to form Blade.org. Blade.org is planned to be a collaborative organization focused on accelerating the expansion of solutions for BladeCenter, a design co-developed by IBM and Intel. This organization is aimed at spurring development and innovation around blade technology, with the intent of supporting BladeCenter innovation in Voice over IP, industry specific solutions, security and many other technologies.
Companies that have expressed an interest in being founding members in the community include Brocade, Cisco, Citrix Systems, IBM, Intel Corporation, Network Appliance, Nortel, Novell and VMware.

The announcement is the latest in a series of actions by IBM to spur openness and collaboration in computing systems. In December of 2004, IBM and industry leaders formed Power.org, an open standards industry group dedicated to accelerating collaborative innovation on the Power microprocessor technology.

Market Impact
IBM's systems business has outgrown all rivals since 2000, gaining 10 points of share overall in the market for powerful computer servers that run corporate data centers (10 points in UNIX server, 6 points in Intel). Over that same period, IBM gained 4 points in the market for Data Storage systems. IBM expects the new strategy announced today to further accelerate its momentum in the $85 billion dollar systems marketplace.
