    Ibm to help clients fight costs and complexity
    In 2000, the Linux operating system was a hot technology, but it had not spread much beyond scientists, researchers and computer programmers. Then I.B.M. declared that it would back Linux with investment, research and marketing, and the technology moved swiftly into the corporate mainstream. Mark Lennihan/Associated Press Samuel Palmisano, I.B.M.’s chief, sees a rising flood of data. The same thing happened with the personal computer in the early 1980s, when I.B.M. endorsed that upstart technology and entered the market. Starting this week, I.B.M. is returning to the same playbook, introducing some initial products and services and a roadmap for its stable of corporate and government customers to comfortably embrace cloud computing. Cloud computing — in which vast stores of information and processing resources can be tapped from afar, over the Internet, using a personal computer, cellphone or other device — holds great ...

    1. This huge explosion of data is driving a movement to design systems around workloads because it is the only way to deliver the computation needed, and it's far more energy-efficient.
    2. The information technology infrastructure is under stress already, and the data flood is just accelerating.
