IBM shipped more than 10,000 units of IBM PureSystems in the 4th quarter of 2013. ABC Capital Mexico, FleetRisk Advisors, Evalueserve India, Karunya University India, eWell Technologies, TCL Multimedia, Fortnox and Taiho Pharmaceutical Japan are some its clients.
In a statement, IBM said it is bagging contracts as several enterprises are not choosing rival solutions from HP, Dell and Oracle, Huawei Cloud center and EMC.
Its growth is mainly coming from India, China and Brazil.
The growth driver for the demand is enterprises’ willingness to consolidate their existing data centers and shift more of their workloads to the cloud.
IBM says as more organizations embrace cloud computing, they are looking to Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to help them quickly develop and deploy cloud based services in a more secure and economical way.
These MSPs – many in India, Brazil and China – are turning to IBM PureSystems over other vendors’ offerings to transform their data centers and provide the IT infrastructure that meets the needs of their clients.
ABC Capital Mexico
ABC Capital, a financial company in Mexico, faced a difficult server consolidation project. After considering other vendors including HP, Dell and Oracle, ABC Capital chose to consolidate its entire IT infrastructure onto IBM PureFlex.
“To become more competitive in the market, ABC Capital was looking to build an infrastructure that could support the mobile technology and social network requirements of our customers,” said Sergio Mendoza Alvarez, director of Technology for ABC Capital. “The integration of our platforms using IBM PureFlex will allow us to meet these goals and reduce the migration time for our multi-core systems, from two years to seven months.”
FleetRisk Advisors, a business unit of Omnitracs, provides analytics solutions for fleet management and logistics.
With a solution that includes IBM PureData System for Analytics, FleetRisk Advisors built a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that enabled it to help reduce fleet-related accidents by 20 percent and support a 200 percent growth in the number of clients it serves.
Evalueserve, a Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) provider in India, which co-designs targeted knowledge solutions and operates global knowledge centers located in Chile, China, India, and Romania, has chosen IBM PureFlex to enable an IT infrastructure that supports a private cloud environment and virtual desktop infrastructure for nearly 2,000 users.
