Tech Mahindra has announced that they will be partnering with IBM in a bid reduce workloads for their clients. According to this deal, Tech Mahindra will be leveraging IBM’s POWER9 systems to strengthen their virtualization, high-computing and data center portfolio.
Tech Mahindra say that they entered into this deal after witnessing a demand for power systems when an Australian retailer and an Asian telecom giant sought their service for the same. They further added it was these events that made them decide that partnering with IBM to fortify their data centers will act as a huge differentiator in the market. Explaining this in detail, Pritam Parvatkar, Senior Vice President of Strategic Technology Relationships at Tech Mahindra said:
The capabilities built with this enhanced relationship positions us to drive value to our joint customers. Our solutions powered by POWER9 systems will further fuel growth of our hybrid cloud initiatives.
IBM’s POWER9 systems are processors that have the latest technology to accelerate data-intensive workloads. They are equipped with PCIe 4.0 with next-generation NVIDIA NVLink and OpenCAPI 2.0 that provide nearly 10 times the memory.
IBM say that the POWER9 systems were built with a focus on simplifying intense workloads for clients. Echoing Parvatkar’s thoughts, Steven Sibley, Vice President for Cognitive systems at IBM commented:
Our collaboration with Tech Mahindra will facilitate rapid migrations to IBM power systems that will help clients build digital transformations initiatives in a multi-cloud world.
