Tongliao City Turns To IBM PureSystems To Spur Economic Development

To meet Tongliao City's needs, IBM and business partner Xi'an Future International Information Co. Ltd. developed the 'Smarter Tongliao City on the Cloud' solution. This cloud computing-based, Smarter Cities project is designed to advance Tongliao City's ongoing economic development and meet the following goals:

  • Streamline the information resource structure and construct a city-level cloud computing center;
  • Develop and promote an eGovernment system managed and maintained by the cloud computing center;
  • Make full use of the latest cloud computing resources to advance 'Smarter Tongliao City on the Cloud';
  • Promote the commercial application of cloud computing resources, the development of peripheral industries of cloud computing and the advancement of regional expansion.

The cloud computing solution is built upon the IBM PureSystems family of expert integrated systems, which includes IBM PureFlex System, IBM PureApplication System and IBM PureData System. IBM PureSystems takes the complexity out of designing, configuring and deploying the advanced technology infrastructure behind Tongliao City's municipal services, public utilities and online access government services. 

Specifically, Xi'an Future International helped Tongliao City select IBM PureApplication System to provide the city with a professional, out-of-the-box, pre-integrated cloud environment that will enable it to streamline services and avoid duplicate efforts to manage and maintain applications and databases focused on reporting of population, law governance, logistics, economics and corporate data.

Cloud computing is recognized as a key element for strategic growth, improving social management capacity and access public services. It is also the driving force behind the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries, the development of emerging industries, and the emergence of new business models. Tongliao City will also use IBM WebSphere MQ, IBM WebSphere Message Broker and IBM WebSphere Portal Server Hypervisor as PaaS middleware.

"With built-in expertise and highly integrated hardware and software capabilities, IBM PureApplication System was selected to be the core of Tongliao City's Smart Cloud infrastructure," said Mr. XU Gang, general manager, WebSphere Software, Software Group, IBM Greater China Region. "With a wealth of practical experiences and leading cloud computing technology, IBM is in the position to work with Xi'an Future International to support Tongliao City to improve the lives of its citizens through this Smarter Cities project."
