At IBM, we obsess over what our clients need—not just to meet today’s business challenges, but what will help them capitalize on future opportunities.

Enhanced Security for Peace of Mind

IBM z16’s built-in security features, including quantum-safe cryptography, pervasive encryption, and AI acceleration, provide our clients with enhanced peace of mind in an interconnected world.

The high level of availability is another key factor that will allow our, customers to maintain access to data from their bank accounts, medical records, and other personal information whenever they need.  

Enhanced Performance

  • AI is on everyone’s agenda, but to integrate AI with existing system and applications is a challenge that most companies face. Low response time, efficient results are the demands of AI integrated applications.
  • The IBM z16’s new chip speaks about embedding AI accelerator on chip itself which would allow businesses to leverage AI in real time directly on their transaction workloads, run AI projects where data resides.
  • They have integrated with popular opensource AI frameworks and built an ecosystem to leverage AI on Z like any other platform. Helping businesses to make faster decisions and gain competitive advantage.

Customized Solutions for Unique Needs

The introduction of single frame and rack mount configurations for zSystems and LinuxONE empowers our clients to design data centers tailored to their specific requirements. By co-locating storage and compute in their racks, they gain greater control over their infrastructure. This level of customization allows them to optimize data center designs and adapt readily to evolving business needs.

IBM offers flexible capacity/capacity on demand to enable businesses shift capacity between z16 systems at different sites. In wake of natural disasters, power outages or cyber-attacks our clients can maintain seamless business continuity.


IBM z16 and LinuxONE 4 offer valuable advantages to our clients, supporting their success and growth. With a focus on sustainability, flexibility, innovation, and security, these solutions cater to the diverse needs of businesses in the modern digital landscape.
