Open Platform for Database-as-a-Service on IBM Power Systems Addresses Massive Data Requirements for the Cognitive Era

In the Cognitive Computing era, businesses face a deluge of data from a wide variety of sources including internal, external, social, mobile, and sensors. Traditional enterprise computing, with its reliance on conventional databases designed for structured data, is unable to cope with this flood of data. Organizations everywhere are therefore modernizing their data platforms, using […]

Short Reach Optics in Modern Data Centers

Spanning Across the Data Center or Breakouts Within the Rack Short Reach (SR) multi-mode optics are the lowest priced optical interconnects available today that use optical connectors to separate the transceiver from the optical fibers. Although both support 100m reach, AOCs are much less expensive that SR optics but the former functions as a complete […]
