IBM Swipes at Silos

Arthur Cole

IBM is packaging some of its established technologies together in an effort to boost data integration and tear down the storage silos that exist in too many enterprises.

 

The company is running the Red Hat version of IBM Information Server on top of dual-core Xeon-based BladeCenter HS21 servers as a means to run multiple IBM, Oracle or SQL Server relational databases. The system is based on the Tivoli Workload Manager that lets you manage workloads across blades clustered in grid environments, even while new blades are being added.

 

The setup takes advantage of exposed API functionality found in certain database applications, as well as open standards data sources, to read, process and write data with any number of user-generated rules, allowing it to be shared across multiple platforms.

 

A key application would be in customer data retention, which is too often separated across different silos within a single organization, making it difficult to address customer concerns and requests and to coordinate customer data for increased sales opportunities.
