    • IBM Power 520 i Edition Proposal Additional Software Include additional software proposed here, for example: Virtualization with PowerVM Complexity can work its way into your IT infrastructure, driven by the introduction of new applications and unanticipated growth. However, adding a server each time you have new demand for a new application means that you also require additional floor or rack space, power, cooling, network interfaces, data storage and administrative resources. Such complexity leads to inefficiency. The answer is consolidation and virtualization. New technologies have emerged that allow organizations to consolidate multiple operating systems and software stacks on a single platform, and allocate the platform to meet specific business and application requirements in a more dynamic fashion. The latest IBM advances in virtualization break out of traditional silos and offer broader platform support and scalability than ever before. The IBM® Power Systems family of servers includes proven server consolidation platforms that help you control costs while improving overall performance, availability and energy efficiency. With these servers and IBM PowerVM™ virtualization solutions, your business can consolidate applications and servers, virtualize its system resources, and provide a more flexible, dynamic IT infrastructure.

    • IBM Power 520 i Edition Proposal technology that will help provide the ongoing healthy ramp of Linux workload adoption on Power i. PowerVM virtualization allows you to run one or more instances of Linux along with your existing IBM i operating system. With this capability, you can consolidate workloads from several separate servers onto a single Power i, potentially increasing overall systems utilization levels. Consolidating existing distributed x86 Linux environments into a Power i virtualization environment can also help address the challenges of reducing space, power, and overall life-cycle costs. The PowerVM stack improves business responsiveness and operational speed by dynamically reallocating resources to applications as needed to better match changing business cycles or handle unexpected surges in user demand. It can reduce life-cycle costs and make better use of IT assets by significantly improving server use and the sharing of I/O resources. Lastly, it can simplify infrastructure management by making workloads independent of the hardware resources they run on, enabling you to make business-driven policies to deliver resources based on time, cost, and service-level requirements. High Availability with PowerHA or IBM iCluster High availability, business continuity, disaster recovery. Power Systems is committed to investing in —and bringing to market— solutions designed to keep your IT environments resilient.

    • IBM Power 520 i Edition Proposal iCluster is flexible and allows concurrent access to read-only business applications, backups or queries, during mirroring. Using it’s unique XtremeCache® technology, iCluster can scale from small and medium businesses to large enterprises. iCluster is backed by extensive IBM global support. Innovative solutions to simplify your Windows infrastructure When it comes to simplifying your IT environment, you need to look well beyond basic hardware or server consolidation. In complex environments necessary to support your business needs, one way to reign in costs is better management, better administration and better control. The integrated design, advanced systems management and enhanced virtualization technologies make the IBM Power i platform ideal to help you reduce costs, improve productivity and increase responsiveness. What the Power i family allows you to do is integrate, extend and grow your business applications like never before by integrating a variety of operating systems, including i5/OS®, AIX, Linux and Windows Server 2003. You choose and run the best mix of applications for your business and manage them centrally. By helping reduce complexity and enabling a high level of IT flexibility, Power i integration with BladeCenter® and the System x™ platform offers an uncomplicated approach to gaining real business value. Innovative integration The Power i platform combines operating systems, middleware, database, security and storage into a single integrated system. This one system can be deployed very quickly, is less costly and offers easy manageability. Instead of supporting and maintaining multiple disparate servers, often one for each application running on Windows, you can simply integrate operations, networking and server management of a Power i, BladeCenter and System x environment to help:  Simplify your Windows infrastructure, and easily grow for the future  Reduce administration and maintenance costs  Run the applications you need—using resources and skills already in place Centralized, graphical server management The Power i Navigator provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for managing the System i and attached BladeCenter and System x servers. You can easily start and stop servers, enroll IBM i users in a Windows domain and perform storage management tasks such as adding new virtual disks to a Windows server. In addition, Navigator for Wireless enables you to view server status and start/stop servers from a Web-enabled cell phone, personal digital assistant (PDA) or a Web browser. Synchronized security We all know the importance of effective security. We also understand the time and costs associated to administer and enforce security measures. One of the ways Power i can reduce IT costs is by enabling IBM i OS and Windows Server user IDs and passwords to be managed centrally. Now when a user is added to IBM i OS, the user can be automatically added to the Windows environment with proper © Copyright IBM Corporation, 2009.

    • IBM Power 520 i Edition Proposal authorizations. When the user changes his or her IBM i OS password, the corresponding Windows password can be automatically updated. This integration capability can do a lot to ease user administration efforts because it eliminates the need for users to maintain multiple passwords across multiple systems. Simplified storage management One of the most significant advantages of the Power i family is its unique storage architecture. It can provide more flexibility than stand alone Windows server implementations, where dedicated disk drives are typically attached to each server and every server’s capacity is managed separately. With Power i integration, there is a single pool of virtual storage that Windows may share. “Virtual disks” are allocated in IBM i OS to each System x or blade server individually, yet all physical disk capacity and drive utilization is automatically managed by the Power i for improved performance and asset utilization. If a Windows server begins to run out of disk space, additional virtual storage may be allocated simply and easily, without rebooting. Consolidated backup IBM i OS can consolidate the backup of Power i, System x and BladeCenter systems allowing businesses to use their hardware and IT support resources more fully. In a typical server farm, data may be scattered across multiple servers, with backup processes running on each one and multiple tape drives to manage. With the integrated Power i environment, all data and files are centralized in virtual storage and a single process can backup IBM i OS and Windows data to a high-speed Power i tape device. It’s that simple. Flexible server deployment Power i storage virtualization also provides innovative options for enhancing the reliability and recoverability of your Windows servers. If a physical server fails, you can quickly and easily switch the server’s storage to a “hot spare” System x or blade server. This can reduce the overall number of servers needed by enabling one “spare” to be available to protect multiple production Windows servers. Business Intelligence with DB2 Web Query Business Intelligence (BI) is a broad term relating to applications designed to analyze data for purposes of understanding and acting on the key metrics that drive profitability in an enterprise. Key to analyzing that data is providing fast, easy access to it while delivering it in formats or tools that best fit the needs of the end user.At the core of any business intelligence solution are end user query and reporting tools that provide intuitive access to data supporting a spectrum of end users from executives to “power users,” from spreadsheet aficionados to the external Internet consumer. IBM® DB2® Web Query offers a set of modernized tools for a more robust, extensible and productive reporting solution than the popular Query/400 tool. DB2 Web Query for i preserves investments in the reports developed with Query/400 by offering a choice of importing definitions into the new technology or continuing to run existing © Copyright IBM Corporation, 2009.
