I recently spent a day with IBM’s x86 team, primarily to get back up to speed on their entire x86 product line, and partially to realign my views of them after spending almost five years as a direct competitor. All in all, time well spent, with some key takeaways:
My net impression is that IBM has become a more effective competitor to HP in several key segments of the x86 market, including blades, converged fabric and virtualized I/O, and as a general competitor across the volume x86 server spectrum that is the mainstay of HP and Dell. All in all this is good news for I&O professionals in that it strengthens competition in a key segment of infrastructure technology.
Tell us what you think. Does this change IBM’s positioning for your future requirements?
