  • On September 27 th 2010, IBM announced a definitive agreement to acquire BLADE Network Technologies (BLADE), a systems networking software and high-speed networking devices company that provides blade server and top-of-rack switches as well as software to virtualize and manage cloud computing and other workloads. The acquisition is subject to the completion of applicable regulatory reviews and other customary closing conditions. We have worked with BNT for years to provide thousands of clients with networking solutions made up of BladeCenter and System x. We have worked with BLADE at all levels to ensure we go after the competition in a cohesive and complementary fashion that serves the needs of our clients. As a strategic IBM investment, BLADE offers proven and sustainable innovation in networking technology that enables highly interconnected systems. We know BLADE can significantly help our clients with the support skills necessary to build smarter systems. This acquisition is about leveraging BLADE products and technology to ultimately do a better job of offering high-value IBM networking solutions. At the same time, we will continue to work with existing networking partners to offer clients a choice for workload optimized networking solutions. Our clients and Business Partners continue to tell us this is an important value-adding requirement for x86 solutions. This is evidenced by the worldwide top-of-rack networking estimate of $1.5 billion in 2010. As a result, it is imperative that you familiarize yourself with the BLADE acquisition materials so you can begin to leverage this acquisition in client engagements and future leadership offerings. Networking is essential to our System x business and will continue to play an important role in our success. For more information on System x networking sales opportunities contact David Tareen (tareen@us.ibm.com).

  • DESCRIPTION} This slide contains the topics that are covered by the narration written in the transcription of this slide {TRANSCRIPT} Pg. #10 shows an intra-line comparison between all 5 IBM Networking switches announcing on 5/25. Columns on left show all three 1Gb offerings while columns on left compare two 10Gb models. You can see differences in form factors key features, virtualization capability, warranty and price. 1GB Switches Common features on all include 48 * 1GB Uplink upgrade capability 1U form factor BNT G8000 BNT G8000 is an Ethernet switch specifically designed for the data center, providing a Virtual, Cooler and Easier network solution. Some G8000 highlights 48 ports 1G Ethernet w/ 10G Uplinks Provide future proofing with capability to upgrade to 10Gb with simple uplink change Designed for performance : 4MB Packet Buffers support more usable bandwidth Up to 16K MAC addresses support large L2 networks Air flow optimized for hot-aisle / cold aisle server Redundant power and fans standard (generally not available on this level of switch) VM Ready Attractive pricing point IBM B48Y (Brocade) Purpose-built for the data center with high performance and resiliency features while minimizing operational costs, IBM B48Y enables easy integration into new or existing network infrastructures backed by extensive interoperability testing. Key points: Forty Eight 1GbE ports standard Four 10 GbE uplink ports are double the number compared to other switches in class Stacking supports up to 8 switches , 384 ports in a single logical switch Hot-swappable power supplies and fans increase availability High scalability of MAC addresses, IP routes, and ARP entries – support larger virtualized environments compared to other products in class IBM J48E IBM Ethernet Switch J48E with Virtual Chassis technology combines high availability and carrier-class reliability of modular systems with economics and flexibility of stackable platforms. Some features including following………………. Forty-eight 1Gb ports 2 Optional uplink modules provide fiber connectivity at 1 GbE or 10 GbE bandwidth , provided by optional uplink modules. Scalability with ability to connect up to 10 switches to one logical device plus scale out as needed Redundant power supplies and hot-swappable fan tray Industry recognized JunOS SW IBM B24X Purpose-built for the data center with high performance and resiliency features while minimizing operational costs, IBM B48Y y-series enables easy integration into new or existing network infrastructures backed by extensive interoperability testing. Key points: Twenty Four 10 GbE uplink ports are double the number compared to other switches in class Hot-swappable power supplies and fans increase availability High scalability of MAC addresses, IP routes, and ARP entries – support larger virtualized environments compared to other products in class BNT G8124 BNT G8124 provides best path for customers to virtualize their networks. Some highlights include…………… 24x SFP+ ports that operate at 10GbE or Gigabit speeds Optimal for High-Performance Computing or other applications requiring the highest bandwidth and lowest latency Unlike most rack equipment that cools from side to side , the RackSwitch has rear-to-front airflow which matches server airflow. Network Virtualization - VMready™ software on the switch helps reduce configuration complexity while significantly improving security levels in virtualized environments. VMready automatically detects virtual machine movement from one physical server to another, and instantly reconfigures each VM’s network policies across VLANs to keep the network up and running without interrupting traffic or impacting performance. . Virtual Fabric for IBM - providing improved performance, availability and security while reducing cost and complexity.
  • We’re going to switch gears a little and take the next few charts to review some of the basic HS22 product details that you need to know about to successfully win with the HS22
  • Giving customers Choice. Choice of Chassis/Blades and Interconnects. 5 types of Chassis. Blades from Intel, AMD, Power and Cell. Any chassis any Blade. and then pick the combination of adapter and switch. Gives the most flexible solution Right from Chassis, Server and IO. 5 types of fabric: Ethernet – Cisco/BNT FC – Brocade, Qlogic, Cisco, Emulex Infiniband – Voltaire, Mellanox SAS – LSI iSCSI
  • Slide 11: The new thinking from IBM… Introducing the eX5 Portfolio The eX5 portfolio unleashes true enterprise-class capability to deliver unprecedented x86 energy efficiency, utilization and systems management. IBM accomplishes this through a number of exclusive eX5 technologies designed to maximize memory, minimize cost and simplify deployment. MAX5 provides unparalleled x86 memory capacity….eXFlash delivers extreme internal storage performance….and FlexNode allows a single system to dynamically become two distinct systems or back again. eX5 delivers an entirely new way of thinking about x86 systems….exemplifies competitive advantage….and completely changes the game in x86 computing.
  • Expand memory capacity, with or without adding more processors – you choose Up to double the number of memory DIMMs Up to 3TB memory in an 8-socket system Up to 192 DIMMs, all running at 1066MHz MAX5 Memory Latency is similar to the local CPU socket Current processors use a Home snoop protocol, which means snoop results are sent to the memory address owner, not the requester The local CPU must wait for snoop results. MAX5’s snoop filter allows it to return memory reads immediately - it already knows the snoop result Over five times the memory capacity in two sockets vs. today’s leading two-socket systems MAX5 memory may be partitioned to CPUs or pooled, depending on workload needs and OS requirements Provides the memory customers have needed for database and virtualization – up to 100% more virtual machines Allows higher memory capacity to be reached with less expensive DIMMs for more economical high end implementations
  • Here are 2 great examples how customers can save with eX5. First – the IBM x3690 X5 has double the amount of DIMM slots which mean customers can get 281 virtual machines vs. the competitor’s 158. OR Customers can save 50% of the license cost with the same number of virtual machines. In this scenario, the customer needs 320 virtual machines. In order to attain this number our competitors must sell them a 4-socket server to get to 64 DIMMs. Keep in mind that VMWare charges per socket so that means 4 licenses. However, with IBM’s x3690 X5, customers can get the same 320 virtual machines on our 2-socket rack server, cutting the VMWare costs in half. Truly amazing!!
