Quru and IBM - a new era in Open Source and Linux technology

IBM is a major investor in Open Source and Linux. To identify the business benefits the IBM Linux on Power systems can deliver we put the new POWER8 to the test. The results have convinced us that it is part of the future of Linux. Today, we use Linux on Power and recommend it to our clients when they are looking at optimizing workload performance. To learn about the results of the Quru POWER8 test programme, watch the video.


Behind good software is great hardware and IBM is the leading hardware vendor for running open source in the Enterprise. Eleven years ago, IBM invested over a billion dollars in Linux and is consistently among the top contributors to the development of the kernel.

IBM's technologies and commitment to open source make them the obvious choice of hardware vendor for Quru, and we are specialists in providing Linux solutions on IBM hardware. Our key strengths are in

  • Linux on System X
  • Linux on System Z
  • Linux on Power
  • IBM storage solutions

The Lenovo Pre-Sales Advisor is an online enablement tool designed to help configure System X Servers, Storage Chassis, BladeCenter S, H and E Chassis, Rack, Tape and UPS.

This tool allows you to quickly build and configure bespoke solutions from IBM without a deep understanding of IBM systems. If however you would prefer Quru to do this or if you want some help with this process, we are more than happy to help.
