The IBM (News - Alert) PureData System is created by the company exclusively to analyze big data in the cloud and provide actionable insights to its enterprise. The company also reduces expenses and speeds up innovation. It is sold in models that are enhanced for either transactional or analytic workloads.

"These are the companies that are turning to PureSystems to reduce their costs and increase their datacenter utilization.”
