IBM will be adding another one of its Oracle Exa-like converged PureSystems in a webcast from Boston on October 9.
AllThingsD broke the news in a piece that has mysteriously disappeared from the Wall Street Journal's site.
It said the thing - which IBM is advertising as an integrated solution for Big Data and the cloud - was developed under the codename Project Sparta, which makes some sense since the first PureSystems - PureFlex and PureApplications - announced in April, were reportedly codenamed Project Troy.
Sparta is supposed to "make capturing value from data faster, simpler and more cost-effective."
IBM has reportedly poured $2 billion into a four-year R&D effort to create the PureSystems line based on the Flex System hardware architecture.
The Register wonders if Big Blue will use its new Power7+ processors to munch on Hadoop Big Data but the curious will have to wait, there are no details.
PureFlex combines computing, data storage, systems management and networking components in a pre-configured data center box,
PureApplications is designed for database and web transactions.
They are supposed to cut the aggravation of setting up a data center from four months to maybe 10 days and save customer a heap of money on storage.
IBM is supposed to spend $100 million on Big Data issues over the next five years. IDC said six months ago that the Big Data market should be worth $16.9 billion in 2015.

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations. Imagine ...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
