  • New thinking is required.
    Traditional server paradigms need to change
    The x86-based PCarchitecture is now 28 years old.
    It has evolved through PCs, towers, racks and blades.
    It holds 53 percentof the server market and that number is growing.

    FlexNode benefits include:
    Scheduled Provisioning: Run scale-out apps by day on a 2P system and scale-up jobs by night on 4P system
    Optimize utilization: Re purpose under utilized systems for more productive use
    Optimize SW licensing costs: Execute partitions to optimize SW licensing costs when priced per socket
    Faster Qualification: Qualify a single platform for 2- and 4-socket server needs
    Built-in virtualization: Run multiple OSs on the same box without hypervisor overhead
    Greater security: Workload isolation to assure quality of service
    IBM Imperative:
    Put FlexNode on RFQ response… put HP on the defensive

  • Platform management that is easy and efficient
    IBM Systems Director 6.1 provides easy-to-use, powerful tools for managing both physical and virtual resources for System x and BladeCenter and other IBM and non-IBM systems. The new version provides simplified deployment, installation and update processes, and can be accessed from anywhere with a consistent, web-based user interface. New tasks can be quickly learned with intuitive wizards, tutorials and integrated help. The broad portfolio of systems managed by a single tool can reduce staff training and operational expenses.
    IBM Systems Director 6.1
  • Reducing complexity of choosing, finding, and learning management tools.
    IBM ToolsCenter consolidates the needed tools for managing servers individually into an integrated suite. The tools are organized by function: deployment, updates, configuration and diagnostics. Tools are now simpler to access and use with a single easy-to-use webpage for access, a common look and feel and a common command line interface for the scripting tools. The ToolsCenter Bootable Media Creator offers significantly more functionality than past tools with the ability to add more tools to the bootable image and to automatically download the bootable environment if needed. The bootable media creator supports CD, DVD and USB key.
