Why Infrastructure matters?!


Published on

The emergence of social, mobile, cloud, big data and analytics are fundamentally changing how we live, work and interact.
Mobile devices are ubiquitous. Changing consumer behaviors, supplanting PCs, generating massive amounts of data and putting new demands on the enterprise to not only support these devices but to adjust the way they do business.
Social technologies are changing the way we interact, communicate and share information – equally generating vast amounts of data and impacting business as they try to unlock the full potential social has to offer.
Cloud technologies bring new scale and efficiency to service delivery and enable more agile ways of doing business and drive business model innovation. For companies, It also brings information and applications to people at the right time and place.
All of these trends are fueling an explosion of data. Not only do enterprises need to store, manage and secure this data, they also need to derive meaningful insight from these vast amounts of data. Data is the basis of significant opportunity and a source of competitive advantage for all organizations. Data is a new economic asset, the next natural resource.

These trends are spawning new workloads, business processes and technology deployments that are putting unprecedented demands on our IT environments.

  6. 6. © 2014 IBM Corporation6 Infrastructure Matters -- Brian Hopkins et al., Forrester Research, “Forrester’s Top 15 Emerging Technologies To Watch: Now To 2018”, February 2013. Infrastructure matters because business outcomes matter and new outcomes entail new infrastructure demands “A wide range of innovations is happening at the infrastructure layer, as continued hardware improvements drive new capabilities for compute, storage, and networking and combine with new innovations in software. These will recombine in numerous ways to create much more capable infrastructure and application platforms.”

  17. 17. © 2014 IBM Corporation17 It’s no secret that IBM wants to move its technology into the kind of data centers that Google and other Web giants operate. Now comes evidence that Google is putting some serious work into that possibility. The Internet search company on Monday said it has designed a motherboard for server systems that uses IBM’s new Power8 chip, which has typically only been found in hardware designed by IBM itself. Google and other cloud-style companies now almost universally rely on x86 chips, the kind long associated with Intel. Google said it developed the board to help adapt its software to run on Power8-based machines. “In order to do that we had to build a piece of hardware,” said Gordon MacKean, a senior director in Google’s hardware group at an IBM event in Las Vegas. MacKean also chairs the OpenPower Foundation, a multi-company group that IBM helped form in an effort to build a broader audience for its chip technology. The latest disclosures follow on the heels of others made by the group and IBM at an event in San Francisco Wednesday. He did not say whether or how Google might actually deploy Power8 technology to handle Web searches or other computing chores. But the hardware and software efforts certainly suggest that the technology trend-setter is at least seriously considering shifting some of its work away from Intel’s technology. Mark Miller, an Intel spokesman, said last week that it questions IBM’s claims that Power8 has performance advantages over Intel chips. “That said, we don’t take competition lightly and are not standing still,” he said.
