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 per cent.

Combined with specialised software from IBM, the system offers virtualisation technology to enhance PT Badak’s infrastructure efficiency.

‘A strong and scalable system is essential to PT Badak’s constantly growing business,’ said Teten Hadi Rustendi, head of IT, PT Badak NGL.

‘After evaluating all vendors, we found IBM’s solution the best choice to deploy our ERP systems.

‘In addition to high performance and reliability, the IBM platform also helps simplify our environment and decrease the time needed to meet our business needs,’ added Rustendi.

Coinciding with this announcement, IBM has showcased its solutions designed to infuse intelligence into IT infrastructure, systems and processes to help companies and organisations in Indonesia improve their operations, on its IBM Smarter Systems Tour 2010.

IBM said that its ‘smarter systems’ allow organisations and companies to manage vast amounts of data, handle analytic and transactional workloads faster, scale as their needs grow, enable efficient and agile data centers, and remain secure and highly available.
