"This improved control and efficiency is particularly relevant for Africa, where smaller enterprises are burgeoning, costs must be tightly controlled and IT skills are a scarce resource", says Bevan Lock, PureFlex Product Manager at IBM South Africa.
In its first year, IBM PureSystems has added around 180 vendors integrating their applications into the PureSystems family, says Lock. The year has also been marked by 350 optimised solutions from over 275 leading partners, over 2300 systems have been deployed in more than 70 countries and over 3000 companies have joined the IBM PartnerWorld MSP Program.
IBM to keep rack servers cool, 13 Sept 2004 [cached]
At the same time, the processors in these servers are getting more powerful -- thus producing more heat," says Bevan Lock, XSeries product manager at IBM SA.
"Air is a good coolant, but it is not as effective as water," comments Lock.In fact, according to a report done by Knurr AG, a company specializing in thermal management for servers, in order to disperse 1 000 watts with a ten-degree temperature difference, only five litres of water is needed per hour, as opposed to 11,475 cubic feet of air.
A typical data center consists of hot and cold aisles -- cold aisles between facing racks and hot aisles at the rear of each row of racks.According to Lock, problems usually arise when a company decides to add another rack, thereby generating more heat.
"The company now has two options: it could either go for the costly, obtrusive route of upgrading its current air-conditioning system or it could install a Cool Blue rear door heat exchanger - provided of course that the new rack is manufactured by IBM," he adds.
IBM's Cool Blue solution comes in the form of a rear door heat exchanger, which clips on the back of any standard IBM enterprise 42U rack."The solution is easier to install and maintain than other cooling methods, and is capable of removing up to 50,000 British thermal units (BTUs) of heat -- up to 55 percent of the heat generated by a fully populated rack," comments Lock.
"Companies will still need the traditional air-conditioning systems to create hot and cold aisles in the data center, but will not need to upgrade the air-conditioning system every time they decide to add more racks into the center," he concludes.
Blade servers: Bleeding-edge or business benefit? [cached]
Bevan Lock, xSeries manager at IBM South Africa, says reduced complexity and the tools available for blade servers to assist roll-outs are the major benefits being realised today.
BlueGene/L System top supercomputer [cached]
Bevan Lock, IBM SA systems evangelist, says 243 of the top 500 are IBM ventures or IBM joint-ventures.
"IBM had more than 1.5-petaflops of the list's aggregate performance total of 2.791-petaflops, more than three times the total throughput of nearest rival HP," he says.
This latest edition of the Top500 was released yesterday at the International Supercomputing Conference in Dresden, Germany.
