IBM launches cyber resilient hybrid cloud and AI platform

IBM unveiled IBM® LinuxONE 4 Express, extending the latest performance, security and AI capabilities of LinuxONE to small and medium sized businesses and within new data center environments. The pre-configured rack mount system is designed to offer cost savings and to remove client guess work when spinning up workloads quickly and getting started with the platform to address new and traditional use cases such as digital assets, medical imaging with AI, and workload consolidation.

“IBM LinuxONE 4 Express is a chance for startups and small to medium-sized businesses to build an intentional hybrid cloud strategy from the ground up. IBM brings the power of hybrid cloud and AI in the latest LinuxONE 4 system to a simple, easy to use format that fits in many data centers,” said Tina Tarquinio, VP, Product Management, IBM Z and LinuxONE. “And as their businesses grow with the changing shifts in the market, LinuxONE 4 Express can scale to meet growing workload and performance requirements, in addition to offering AI inferencing co-located with mission-critical data for growing AI use cases.”

University College London been working with IBM to build a sustainable hybrid cloud platform to support their academic research. “Our Centre for Advanced Research Computing is critical to enable computational research across the sciences and humanities, as well as digital scholarship for students,” said Dr. Owain Kenway, Head of Research Computing at University College London. “We’re excited for LinuxONE 4 Express to support high I/O workloads like Next Generation Sequencing for Biosciences as well as supporting work in “Trusted Research Environments” (TREs), for example AI workloads on medical data. The system’s high performance and scalability suit our crucial research needs, and its affordability will allow us to make it available to both university research and industry players as a test bed.”

“IBM LinuxONE is rapidly becoming a foundational part of the wider Infrastructure story within IBM,” states Steven Dickens, VP and Practice Leader at The Futurum Group. “With the new LinuxONE 4 Express solution, IBM is uniquely positioned to handle mission-critical workloads with high availability. When you combine this with the system’s cybersecurity posture, IBM is well positioned for market traction.”
