A simplified system for today's data demands


With the challenge of growing data volume and the need for fast business answers, using a multi-purpose system for all data workloads is often not the most cost effective or low risk approach, and definitely not the fastest to deploy. The PureData System is optimized exclusively for delivering data services to today's demanding analytic applications. Each of the IBM PureSystems, it offers built-in expertise, integration by design, and a simplified experience throughout its life cycle.

Simplified experience
The PureData System provides single part procurement with no assembly required (ready to load data in hours), open integration with 3rd party software, and integrated management console for the entire system, single line of support, integrated system upgrades and maintenance.

The PureData System comes in different models that have been designed, integrated and optimized to deliver data services to today's demanding applications with simplicity, speed & lower cost.
