16 Jul 10

IBM has told The Channel that it’s keen on opening up its client-based events to anyone interested in  IBM's hardware.

The After 5 events offer a chance to meet, discuss and get your hands on the latest IBM hardware. Previouisly the events have only been open to IBM partners and customers.

“We currently hold these events for existing clients but are keen to run them on a regular basis for anyone interested in learning more about IBM's hardware,” Julian Walker, System x Territory Manager, IBM New Zealand, said.

Topics include:




  • Maximise memory: Add memory when you need it and not processors.



  • Minimise cost: Support significantly more virtual machines for the same license cost.



  • Simplify deployment: Workload Optimised solutions reduce deployment from months to days.

“We're keen to hear from people who are interested in attending this type of event and will schedule the first 'open' After 5 once we've received enough registrations,” added Walker.

Anyone interested in attending an open event should email ibm@nz.ibm.com.
