To clean the system of cloud computing, IBM’s goal release

IBM-Intel-logoIBM Corp. on Wednesday unveiled a new push toward simplified business computing that it calls PureSystems.

The program, which is the result of $2 billion in IBM research over four years, created “expert-integrated systems” that combine servers, storage, networking and pretested software applications in a single cabinet.

The idea, IBM said, is to make cloud computing systems faster and easier to install and manage and so eliminate many of the headaches involved in installing and tuning complex computing systems.

PureSystems will support both Intel processors and IBM’s Power processors, which are primarily designed in Austin.

Hundreds of IBM hardware and software engineers were involved the development process, which included teams from throughout the company.

The first two versions of PureSystems are expected to be available for sale in June with a starting price of about $160,000.

Industry analyst Joe Clabby said the PureSystems approach makes it far simpler for independent software companies to build business applications that are optimized to run at top performance on the systems. More than 125 software firms have already created applications to run on PureSystems.
