  IBMSystemStorage Product Guide IBMSystems and Technology  2 Why IBMInformation Infrastructure? IBM ® Information Infrastructure helps organizationsmanage the incredible explosion of the amount and types of digital information, even during difficult economic times.IBMInformation Infrastructure can help clients lower storageacquisition costs dramatically while improving data resiliencyand security. Today, IBMoffers proven capabilities in coretechnologies such as deduplication, virtualization, encryptionand solid-state storage. New solutions are available for largerorganizations using mainframes, as well as for midsizeorganizations. New IBMSmart Business Systems simplifydeployment of private cloud solutions for archiving andnetwork file services.IBMInformation Infrastructure can do much more than helpreduce costs. It is also an important enabler of information-ledtransformation, which is key to growth for many organizations.Information-led transformation is a process through whichorganizations can turn information into a strategic driver forinnovation, business optimization and competitive differentia-tion. This process can help clients use information morepervasively across the organization, leverage analytics to takea predictive view of the business, make real-time decisionsand discover new kinds of intelligence from the informationat hand. As organizations build new information-driven or information-based products and services, throughput and availabilityrequirements can increase dramatically. The IBMsolutionhelps enable information-led transformation with innovativetechnology that can break through traditional performancebarriers with best practice-based services to help clientsmanage the transition. For example, with a smart use of solid-state storage, IBMstorage arrays and virtualizationcontrollers can deliver drastic improvements with a smallamount of solid-state disk.
