Special Correspondent

BANGALORE: IBM on Tuesday launched the new System z9 business class mainframe designed to tackle critical computing challenges emanating from automated service oriented architecture (SOA) implementations, new heightened expectations for data security and the rapid expansion of emerging markets.

The aggressively positioned system features a new specialty engine and capabilities.

"The IBM System z9 business class broadens access to the System z9 platform, world's most secure commercially available mainframe computer, around the globe, in India and other fast-emerging markets, where firms are rapidly deploying mainframe technology needed to achieve the scale and reliability required to keep pace in a globally integrated economy," said Jim Stallings, General Manager of System z9, IBM Systems and Technology Group.

"The new mainframe is expected to play a growing role in healthcare and retail sectors as it increasingly is used to process sensitive data that is progressively more shared especially in an emerging market such as India," he added.
