Tieto provides cloud-based infrastructure as a service



 
 

Smarter Computing In ActionFor IT service providers like Tieto, staying green while serving a growing client base can be a big challenge. As clients expand their hosted IT landscapes, the associated rise in compute, storage and networking requirements can rapidly combine to increase costs, drive up energy consumption and increase management complexity for service providers.

Jimi Inge, lead service architect at Tieto, says:

“IBM i is the leader when it comes to technology. It’s really easy to work with this platform. It’s dynamic. It’s flexible. And we love it!”

With this in mind, it’s easy to see why Jimi Inge is excited about the IBM i operating system. Combining logical partitions (LPARs) on the IBM i operating system with a high-performance IBM Power 740 platform, Tieto was able to consolidate its physical server environment by 75 percent. The new, more compact environment has cut energy requirements by 50 percent. Thanks to the IBM solution, Tieto has been able to reinvest these savings in better service for its clients.

And that’s just the start. Building on the flexible IBM i infrastructure, Tieto developed iTAP – a cloud-based infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solution that virtualizes the company’s underlying IBM Power Systems resources. With iTAP running on IBM i, Tieto has upped its service utilization from 20 percent to 80 percent – enabling it to host more clients securely on the same physical hardware –  and providing lightning-speed self-service provisioning.

To see how a Smarter Computing solution from IBM helped Tieto to establish itself as a major player in the Northern European managed services marketplace, check out the: Tieto – IBM Smarter Computing case study.

She has been at IBM for more than 10 years and her other roles included the creation of Marketing Campaigns supporting Midmarket, Global Financing and the IBM Business Partner Channel. Prior to joining IBM, Jaime held Product Management positions at MasterCard and Chase.
