IBM System x is going away, and I'm not sad to see it go. Cue the Wayne's World dream sequence effect....
I remember working for an IBM Business Partner many years ago. We sold a good few iSeries and pSeries in our little corner of the market. We sold storage a little less frequently and only when we got wind of a deal. That was our focus: iSeries, pSeries, and storage. xSeries was a different story. Unless some xSeries was a very minor part of a bigger deal that was 100% going to happen, we weren't to even think about selling it, let alone give a customer any form of discount.

The surge in data breaches and cyber attacks over the past few years has spurred organizations to cast a wider net when it comes to security. In particular, they are more keen to purchase cyber insurance policies that cover a comprehensive range of liabilities, including malware-infected mainframes, distributed denial of service attacks, and other issues that could trigger unplanned downtime.
One of the most telling revelations of the holiday breach at Target was that the retailer had purchased at least $100 million worth of cyber insurance. The incident exposed data on as many as 70 million payment card accounts, but Target’s insurance purchases could be a sign of things to come. Going forward, more organizations may sign up for policies as insurers get better at quantifying breach risks and IT departments seek an additional layer of protection to cover key assets.
