IBM and Bharti Airtel, a premier communications solutions provider in India with more than 358 million subscribers, today announced their intent to work together to deploy Airtel's edge computing platform in India, which will include 120 network data centers across 20 cities.

Next generation LinuxONE servers extend IBM's capabilities to help clients across industries, including Citibank, reach sustainability targets

IBM unveiled the next generation of its LinuxONE server, a highly scalable Linux and Kubernetes-based platform, designed to deliver scalability to support thousands of workloads in the footprint of a single system1.

IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 features capabilities that can reduce clients' energy consumption. For example, consolidating Linux workloads on five IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 systems instead of running them on compared x86 servers under similar conditions can reduce energy consumption by 75%, space by 50%, and the CO2e footprint by over 850 metric tons annually
