IBM 'to reduce IT energy consumption in Brazil'

IBM 'to reduce IT energy consumption in Brazil'

IBM has announced it is to join forces with ABC Brazil Bank in a bid to increase energy efficiency for IT in the country.

A new agreement between the bank and the computing giant will see the latter implement a scalable datacentre for the country's outsourcing needs.

However, IBM's goal is to produce the centre on less space and to therefore reduce energy costs simultaneously.

A spokesperson for the organisation outlined the plan, saying: "The agreement includes 36 months of IBM online maintenance and support, storage and IBM Blade Centre servers, as well as virtualisation technology."

This comes after IBM recently announced that it can guarantee high performance in its technology solutions while reducing energy at the same time.

The organisation introduced new software that better utilises hardware - DB2 and InfoSphere Warehouse - which it claimed will cut energy costs by 75 per cent and administrative time by 35 per cent.
