Tracewell Systems Announces IBM Technology Agreement

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept 24, 2009 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Larry Tracewell, president and CEO of Tracewell Systems, today announced his company has signed an agreement with IBM, enabling the Columbus-based engineering services firm to collaborate with IBM to design, manufacture and sell future versions of the IBM BladeCenter for use in environmentally challenging conditions, such as those found in Defense and Homeland Security applications.

In order to meet the design and production demands for deploying the IBM-based systems in harsh environments, Tracewell Systems will hire additional engineering, systems integration and program management support staff from the greater Columbus area.

The IBM BladeCenter is comprised of integrated servers, storage and networking that reduces complexity, increases performance and significantly reduces costs within a forward and backward compatible architecture. Currently the world's fastest computer, Roadrunner, at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, is based on BladeCenter.
