  • 5. IBM BladeCenter Chassis Proposal Executive Summary Our Understanding of Your Goals IBM® BladeCenter® is based on a relatively new technology that can help reduce the cost of ownership with a more efficient use of valuable floor space due to its modular design. Its simplified management can help speed up such tasks as deploying, re- provisioning, updating, and troubleshooting hundreds of blade servers with relative ease. All this can be done remotely with one graphical console using IBM Director systems management tools. In addition, blade servers can provide improved performance by potentially doubling current rack density, thereby permitting you to integrate your resources and share key components. This can result in cost reductions and increased availability. Employing blade servers can help you use available rack and floor space more efficiently. We recommend the use of blade servers for the following situations:  Space-constrained environments  WebSphere®  Linux® clusters  Web caching  Collaboration applications (Lotus® Notes®, Microsoft® Exchange and Citrix)  Dynamic Web serving - Load balancing  Firewall  Telecommunications  Active directory services  Scientific and technical computing These applications are typically processor and memory intensive, which lend themselves to the scale out option around which the BladeCenter technology is centered. Our Approach to Meeting Your Goals To many IT vendors, blades are a form factor change — just another way to package a 2- or 4-socket server. IBM’s innovative approach to blade design delivers a solution that’s easier to manage, uses less power, produces significantly less heat, has longer life spans, and is easy to set up and scale. © Copyright IBM Corporation, 2009.

  • 6. IBM BladeCenter Chassis Proposal System x and BladeCenter Solutions Working closely with IBM Business Partners, IBM has tuned-up and optimized IBM System x™ servers and BladeCenter® systems in order to provide flexible, cost- effective platforms for building solutions. The result — innovative technology that can help maximize your IT infrastructure to scale quickly, easily, and inexpensively, so you can stretch your IT budget and confidently execute your business objectives — even as conditions change. http://www.ibm.com/systems/x/solutions/ IBM Blade Migration Center Aimed at helping Dell and HP clients escape outdated, disparate, and complex architectures by moving to a smarter IT platform, IBM has created the IBM Blade Migration Center. Whether your need is big or small, the IBM Blade Migration Center can help you successfully move to IBM's leading blade technologies. Experience the power and innovation of IBM BladeCenter servers. http://www.ibm.com/systems/migratetoibm/factory/ IBM BladeCenter Alliance Program The IBM BladeCenter Alliance Program joins the exemplary architecture of BladeCenter with the innovative technological skills of companies from a wide range of disciplines. These companies have chosen BladeCenter because they believe the architecture adds value to the blade solutions that they create for their clients. http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/bladecenter/advantages/alliance/index.html Why IBM BladeCenter? All blades are not created equal. To many IT vendors, blades are a form factor change—just another way to package a 2- or 4-socket server. With a wide choice of compatible chassis, blade servers, storage and networking offerings, and solution providers, IBM delivers an innovative approach to blade design. You get an open solution that's easier to manage, uses less power, produces significantly less heat and is easier to set up and scale compared to traditional rack systems. http://www.ibm.com/systems/bladecenter/advantage/competitive.html To make the decision easy for you, here are twelve simple and compelling reasons.

  • 11. IBM BladeCenter Chassis Proposal Driving innovation IBM continues to build on its reputation for helping customers find innovative IT solutions with BladeCenter H, which delivers even more capabilities to the BladeCenter family. The 9U chassis provides the standard BladeCenter functionalities with the added performance of high-speed I/O and the fastest blades. Other highlights include:  High-speed fabric with eight data channels to every blade, four of which can be 10 Gb  Flexible, scalable design so the system can grow as your business grows  Sustainable platform life for enhanced investment protection  Multi-Switch Interconnect Module for additional connectivity to blade servers  Light path diagnostics for fast, simple, accurate troubleshooting to help guard against system downtime BladeCenter H also drives innovation through its open architecture, supporting industry-standard I/O switches from Cisco, Brocade and others, so organizations have more choice and flexibility when it comes to their IT environment. Likewise, IBM’s affiliation with blade.org helps open the architecture even more by supporting an online, collaborative environment to promote advances in technology solutions. Managing growth, minimizing risk With its unsurpassed architecture, BladeCenter H efficiently integrates servers, storage, networking, I/O and applications, enabling organizations to build flexible IT infrastructures using common building blocks. This helps customers control costs by protecting their investments—and with a powerful set of tools that are open and equally integrated, organizations can quickly deploy and easily manage their systems. As a rack-dense, space-saving chassis, BladeCenter H provides a superior foundation for virtualization. And in a virtualized environment, organizations can run a more flexible, better utilized and potentially more cost-effective IT infrastructure with a common management construct. Easy and energy-efficient Because BladeCenter H is up to 10% more energy efficient than the HP C-class chassis1, organizations know they’re making the right choice when it comes to using less power. Innovative tools such as IBM Systems Director Active Energy ManagerTM track power usage so organizations can better manage energy and help prevent outages. And not only does BladeCenter H help organizations go green and save, it also makes it easy to deploy, integrate and manage applications—so customers can focus on their business and not on their IT.

BNT 1/10Gb Uplink Ethernet Switch Module for IBM BladeCenter The BNT 1/10Gb Uplink Ethernet Switch Module for IBM BladeCenter is a switch option that enables administrators to offer full Layer 2 and 3 switching and routing capability with combined 1 Gb and 10 Gb uplinks in a BladeCenter chassis. Such consolidation simplifies the data center infrastructure and helps reduce the number of discrete devices, management consoles, and management systems. In addition, the next-generation switch module hardware can support IPv6 Layer 3 frame forwarding protocols by using a future firmware upgrade. This Ethernet Switch Module delivers port flexibility, efficient traffic management, increased uplink bandwidth, and strong Ethernet switching price/performance. The BNT 1/10Gb Uplink Ethernet Switch Module offers the following benefits:  All 1 Gb and 10 Gb uplink ports can be active at the same time.  The switch consumes only 40 Watts, which is ideal for clients with power limitations or for those who simply want to reduce operating cost and be more environmentally friendly.  It has a large L2 forwarding table (16K), which allows the switch to accommodate a larger flat network with minimum aging activity. © Copyright IBM Corporation, 2009.
