IBM today unveiled plans around cloud computing, a revolutionary approach to computing that will allow corporate data centers to act with the efficiency of the Internet. IBM's commitment to cloud computing echoes another major commitment to computing the company made in 2000 when it announced its support of Linux.
IBM's initiative -- dubbed "Blue Cloud" -- is a game-changing model for Internet-scale computing that helps businesses address their most urgent IT issues-- how to access enough computing power to innovate and grow, solve highly compute-intensive programs and yet let the technology 'manage itself'. It also will address the needs of companies to provide more computing power in a more energy efficient fashion. IBM has dedicated more than 200 researchers worldwide to develop Internet-scale computing, including Blue Cloud.
