IBM has announced the opening of its new Power systems development laboratory in Taipei City, Taiwan. The lab will focus on designing new energy efficient technologies for the platform to help clients address this pressing issue.

The new lab is the latest major investment IBM has made in Power Systems, which continue to gain global market share. During the past four years alone IBM has invested $3.2 billion in Power Systems. In 2010, 29% of the IBM's systems revenue was driven in its growth markets unit. In 2015 IBM expects that 40% of its total systems revenue will come from these growth markets.

Nearly 400 customers migrated from competitive systems to IBM Power Systems in the fourth quarter, including 235 from Oracle/Sun and 135 from HP. There were nearly 1200 competitive displacements to IBM Power Systems from Oracle/Sun, HP and others throughout 2010.

According to IDC, IBM's Power Systems had 53.9% share of the worldwide UNIX server segment (by revenue) in Q4 2010, as IBM gained 5.9% of share over competitors and led the second-place vendor in the quarter by more than 30%.

IBM's sustained, multi-billion dollar investments in Power Systems led to the introduction in 2010 of workload-optimized systems for the demands of emerging business models such as smart electrical grids, real-time analytics in financial markets and healthcare, mobile telecommunications, and smarter traffic systems.

"IBM is building this capability in Taiwan to serve the market opportunity for Power systems in emerging markets and globally. The new Power Systems Development Laboratory will extend IBM's leadership in systems expertise to allow us to continue to gain market share across the board," said Tom Rosamilia, general manager and IBM Power and z Systems.

The new laboratory expands the mission of the Taiwan Systems and Technology Laboratory (TSTL) which is part of IBM's Greater China STG Development Lab, already a hub for global expertise in storage and other systems architectures. The new laboratory joins existing Power Systems development labs in Austin, Texas, Rochester, Minnesota, and Boblingen, Germany.
