IBM System x & BladeCenter Delivering Smarter Systems for a Smarter Planet


Slide2 l.jpg

Client challenges with enterprise workloadsDatabase, Virtualization, Transaction processing

Memory Capacity

Do More With Less

Simplify

  • Restricted server utilization

  • Bigger workloads

  • Difficulty supporting more, bigger virtual machines, growing databases and increases in transaction processing.

  • A need to reduce operational expenses

  • Having to cut license fees and energy costs

  • Investing in only what is needed

  • Having to get the most out of existing data centers.

  • Speed time from deployment to production

  • Optimized performance for their workload needs

  • Get more out of the people, IT, and spending they have

  • Flexibility to get the IT they need, the way they need it

Difficult challenges create an opportunity for innovation

Innovation

The next generation x86 architectures must be able to keep up with the proliferation of workloads and explosion of data of a smarter, more interconnected planet.


Ibm systems l.jpg
IBM Systems………….

In today’s economy, we need dynamic infrastructures that drive down costs, and are intelligent and secure.

Reduce Cost

Not just containing operational cost and complexity, but achieving breakthrough productivity gains through virtualization, optimization, energy stewardship, and flexible sourcing.

Improve Service

Increasingly customer demand for quality service & continuous accessibility

Manage Risks and Threats

Security, resiliency & compliance challenges are created by the accelerating pace of change.

Faster SAP performance

  • Designed for enterprise applications, eX5 systems are the only ones with the right balance to deliver maximum capability and minimum cost

  • Virtualization demands memory to run the most efficient virtual environments. With eX5, clients can get 6 times the memory as HP’s Dunnington – based DL580 G5.

  • Database and transaction processing applications need the memory capacity and bandwidth from eX5. And with eXFlash, clients can lower costs 97% for database storage.
