PT Badak, a liquefied natural gas producer, has chosen IBM to produce an IT infrastructure to manage internal and external resources, including tangible assets, financial resources, materials and HR. PT Badak said that it selected IBM due to the high performance, availability and energy efficiency of IBM Power Systems.
The IBM Power 575 supercomputer being used at PT Badak is designed for organisations that require highly scalable systems with extreme parallel processing performance and dense, modular packaging. Equipped with IBM's Power6 microprocessor, the IBM Power 575 uses water-chilled copper plates to remove heat from the electronics, reducing the amount of energy needed to cool the data centre by 40%. Combined with specialised software from IBM, the system offers virtualisation technology to enhance PT Badak's infrastructure efficiency.
