Telco client benefits from real-time, agile infrastructure
In order to reduce time to results and get products to market faster, businesses in nearly every industry are looking for ways to improve the efficiency of their technical computing environments. In the past, the key to improving efficiency was to improve application performance and workload throughput. However, you can also benefit from simplified installation, deployment, and management of your technical computing environment.
IBM Application Ready Solutions take the guess work and complexity out of deploying, managing and using high-performance clusters, grids and clouds in industries such as automotive, aerospace, life sciences, computational chemistry, petroleum, and telecommunications. Performance optimised for key ISV applications and backed by reference architectures, these systems help you reduce risk and improve time to value.
