Infotech Lead India: Torres Network has decided to deploy new solutions built on IBM’s PureSystems to help grow its businesses.
The Bangalore-based carrier-grade software provider selected IBM PureSystems as the test platform for their solutions in order to bring together the infrastructure and application layer.
Torres hopes that it can meet its specific needs, providing all infrastructure elements required to run the workloads in a single system. PureSystems will provide the perfect test platform during the product development stage.
“Our need for the latest, scalable IT infrastructure for consistent results for testing our solutions while ensuring high performance was crucial,” said V.Jude Pragash, director – Engineering, Torres Networks. “We decided to do complete hardware overhaul based on IBM’s smarter computing approach to IT and IBM PureSystems offered a highly scalable platform that met the needs of our customers and was also manageable from remote locations.”
“IBM is committed to the success of companies like Torres Networks, as we view these companies as engines of global economic growth and innovation.
