INNOVATION complements new IBM System z10 business class SMB mainframe with attractively priced data protection, business continuance and storage resource management solutions.

Little Falls, NJ, November 10, 2008 — “Shipping smart, secure, non-disruptive and efficient data protection, business continuance and storage resource management solutions to complement the just announced IBM SMB market mainframe, INNOVATION improves business resiliency at less cost. All current releases of our business resiliency solutions are ready to help System z10 Business Class customers of all sizes improve availability, survivability, security and employ ‘Green’ technology”, said Thomas J Meehan, INNOVATION Data Processing, Vice President, Advance Technology.

“The z10 Business Class announcement is a significant IBM delivery. Mainframe and non-mainframe customers alike tell us they need to do more with less in the face of current economic conditions. They are under pressure to reduce expenditures yet still need to insure 24 x 7x 365 availability, support application growth, meet data protection responsibilities and reduce resource consumption. That means consolidation, virtualization and resource efficiency; coincidently exactly what IBM is delivering with the new Business Class z10 mainframe, Linux on System Z and new z/OS 1.10 operating system. The ability of INNOVATION solutions to virtualize consolidation, conserve resources, improve scalability, boost performance, prevent unauthorized access to data at rest and preserve uninterrupted access to data in use will make them key contributors as customers consider new enterprise data center (NEDC) initiatives”, adds Meehan.
