Gulf Business Machines (GBM) has launched VersaStack Solution in partnership with IBM and Cisco at a series of exclusive events in the UAE this week.
VersaStack Solution is said to be the world’s first integrated infrastructure based on the IBM Storwize family of virtualized storage technologies and the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS).
The new technology accelerates users’ IT infrastructure, and is targeted at the ever growing demand for virtualized infrastructure, while delivering dramatic improvements in operational efficiency and simplicity. With five times more data, with real time compression, VersaStack Solution has been widely anticipated by tech-consumers and businesses globally, says GBM.
“We have been long-term partners of Cisco in the region and this event provides an excellent platform for us to highlight the success our collaboration has brought and the way in which we drive the industry forward in partnership,” commented Hani Nofal, vice president of Intelligent Network Solutions at GBM.
Scott Manson, Data Center Middle East Lead at Cisco, said “GBM is an enabler and backer of Cisco technology in the region and it is fantastic to have such a high level of support from them for such an important event here in Dubai. VersaStack Solution is just one of the joint projects that IBM and Cisco have recently worked together on. We look forward to launching this technology solution.”
