These new systems are the culmination of $2.4 billion of investment, three-plus years of development and exploit hundreds of IBM patents. Powered by the POWER8 microprocessor, the systems are created to harness massive amounts of data and can analyze Big Data workloads up to 50 times faster than commodity servers.

  11. Interesting post right here. One thing I would like to say is that often most professional areas consider the Bachelor’s Degree just as the entry level standard for an online diploma. Whilst Associate Qualifications are a great way to get started on, completing your own Bachelors starts up many doors to various occupations, there are numerous internet Bachelor Course Programs available by institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions provide Online variants of their diplomas but generally for a substantially higher charge than the corporations that specialize in online course programs.
