environment, the most valuable and frequently accessed data would be on the higher-cost storage, with other data stored on lower-cost options, creating a tiered storage model. However, achieving this optimal placement of data is extremely resourceintensive, and frequently, its associated costs can outweigh the benefits. IBM Research has been developing new technologies and methodologies to enable automation of this process. In a recent test using new tools, the time taken to create a tiered environment for a large 57 TB database was reduced from 235 hours to just six. These advancements are making the prospect of data tiering a reality and will help deliver significant cost savings. While the growth of data is a huge challenge to IT, it’s also a tremendous opportunity for the business. The ability to harness all available information for better insight is considered essential to most business leaders, and advanced analytics and business intelligence are the key to success. IBM is leading the development of innovative technologies for analytics, and it’s exploiting them within its internal account to drive value to the business. IBM Blue Insight is the world’s largest private cloud computing environment for business analytics. Deployed on System z hardware, it consolidates information from nearly 100 different information warehouses and data stores—in total, more than a petabyte of data. This data is then made available through a set of analytics tools with IBM Cognos* on Linux* on System z to drive new insight from a single view of data across the enterprise. The benefits of this project have been substantial:
