  • Let’s get a deeper understanding of how the System z mainframe technologies delivers better results
  • Let’s first start with the often used term “mainframe-like” Why do our competitors often claim their products are MF-like? and why do analysts compare new products to mainframes? For e.g. “Virtualization is the “mainframe of the 21 st century …” .

  • If you looked up “mainframe” on the web you’ll get a broad range of “definitions” …. most are not accurate Answers.com says: “A state-of-the-art computer for mission critical tasks. In the ‘ancient’ mid-1960s, all computers were mainframes, since the term referred to the main CPU cabinet. Today, it refers to a class of ultra-reliable medium and large-scale servers designed for enterprise-class and carrier-class operations.” [Click to show word ‘server’] System z is a mainframe computer [Click] It’s a server, not just any server … .. But the Most scalable … with the cost per transaction reducing with scale .. many of our customers can testify to this .. It can scale up, but did you know it can also scale out?

  • Why are customers so interested in Virtualization? Customer Pain Points Underutilized IT assets Escalating energy and space costs Linear software costs per server image Staff inefficiencies managing multiple real servers Spiraling people costs [Click] Here we explain how System z delivers better virtualization than any other platform Virtualization is architected into the system, and was pioneered by IBM over 40 years ago [Click] support in the hardware, with 10% of the circuits dedicated for virtualization There 2 levels of hypervisor capabilities: one at the firmware level, by PR/SM, and the second at the software level via zVM Each server can be partitioned into 60 logical partitions, called LPARs, with each LPAR behaving just like a single, physically separate, mainframe And each LPAR can be further virtualized into 100s of virtual servers, all with the ability to share memory, processors and other resources, physically or virtually [Click] System z Deploy virtual servers in seconds Add physical resources without taking the system down: scale out to 100s or 1000s of virtual servers inside one machine Do more with less: host more virtual servers per core and share more physical resources across all the virtual servers Policy-driven workload management Extensive built-in facilities provide life-cycle management: provisioning, monitoring, security, charge-back, backup, more… [Click] Distributed environment Average 10-20% utilization per server Limited per-core virtual server scalability Physical server sprawl is needed to scale Operational complexity increases as virtual server images grow VMware tools only support VMware hypervisor (ESX) ‘“ VM stall” the next big virtualization challenge’ – article on problems with scaling and managing virtualization that is stalling further deployment of virtualization …. http://www.networkworld.com/news/2010/060110-is-vm-stall-the-next.html?page=1

Consolidate 292 Sun servers to Linux on System z10 and save 95% on power and cooling, and 97% on floor space reduction. 2, 3 (1) p16 – p18
  • System z is the only commercial platform with EAL5 security classification. Up to 70% in security audit savings.(1) ( 1 )IBM Study with external customers. Results may vary depending on existing audit capabilities Up to 52% lower security administrative costs.(2) (2)IBM Study with external customers. Results may vary Only the System z server provides an integrated encryption infrastructure -- from the server, to the z/OS operating system, and protecting sensitive data over the internet, on databases, and tape.
  • We will go deeper into the System z to explain how it can deliver scalability, and green savings better than distributed platforms A System z server can be run up to 100% utilization compared to an average of 10-20% utilization for distributed servers It is architected and designed to share resources for maximum utilization across the multiple applications This includes the processors, memory, network, adapters, cryptography All of which contributes to a lower power consumption per unit of work and hence contribute to significant customer savings

  • This is a high level view of the platform competitiveness. If you sue this chart, you should spend time to discuss each main category, asking questions along the way to gauge the importance of that item to the customer. This is a summary of the main points from the “right fit for purpose” whiteboard. Refer to the sales kit that goes with that for some customer examples, if you don’t have some already.
  • IBM CONFIDENTIAL UNTIL ANNOUNCEMENT And now a look at the newest member of the System z family, the IBM zEnterprise System – which introduces a new dimension in computing A System of Systems World’s most scalable and fastest enterprise system One z196 processor core with greater than 1.2 BIPs consumes the power of a domestic toaster. 5.2GHz processor Ideal for large scale data and transaction serving and mission critical applications Most efficient platform for Large-scale Linux consolidation Capable of massive scale up, over 50 Billion Instructions per Second (BIPS) Unified Resource Manager Unifies management of resources, extending IBM System z® qualities of service across the infrastructure IBM director and VMControl bundles for System z Scale out to Trillions of Instructions per sec Selected IBM POWER7™ blades and IBM System x® Blades* for tens of thousands of AIX® and Linux applications High performance optimizers and appliances to accelerate time to insight and reduce cost Dedicated high performance private network
  • With zEnterprise, you have a wide choice of environments available to you to be able to optimize for different needs of applications For z/OS it really continues to be the ideal platform for mission critical enterprise databases, transaction processing and those applications that require the ultimate in availability, security and scalability. It still will be the gold standard if you will. With this new platform we can deliver up to 40% improvement in most z/OS workloads compared to the z10 which was already a phenomenal platform. Linux on System z will remain the most efficient platform for large scale application consolidation because of the shared everything architecture, because of the benefits of z/VM and because of the high performance related to interconnect between those applications running on Linux and other applications on Linux and z/OS and databases on z/VM. That will remain the most efficient platform. However, we all know that sometimes applications are not available or perhaps they don’t virtualize well. They’re not available on Linux on Z nor on z/OS or they don’t virtualize. In those cases, for those workloads that do fit well in a Blade environment, and that’s where you would like to AIX and Linux for application and application hosting, really extending the Z quality of service. Not the full quality of the service but approaching System z quality of service, an improvement over what you would get on a standalone distributed platform. And finally, the dedicated workload optimizers, the first of which we actually did a statement of direction in 2009. The smart analytics optimizer - we’re seeing performance improvement and beta - customer beta testing and a five to 10X and frankly we have seen over 80X and up to well above 100 fold improvement in performance complex queries because it’s all an in memory table scan of the data warehouse running on this optimizer. So it gives you - your query comes back in a determined amount of time because you scanned the entire memory of the data warehouse. And that can give substantial cost savings but also substantial improvements and time to insight.
  • Let’s look at the rich solutions stack that is supported on the System z
  • There is a comprehensive portfolio of applications and tools to meet your business needs A sample of vendors are listed here. System z supports a range of open standards – such as Java, web services and major communications protocols If asked, here are some specific numbers of apps/vendors: As of 1H 2010, 1,650 unique ISVs have enabled more than 6,300 applications on the System z platform. As of 1H 2010, 3,000+ Linux applications are supported on System z:550 new Linux applications added in 2009; another 80 applications already enabled in 2010.

IBM’s overall solution strategy links business and IT objectives to give you the capabilities you need to be successful. IBM and business partners provide industry solutions to help meet specific strategic objectives. These solution offerings leverage IBM and business partner industry assets and best practices and business applications. To support these solutions, IBM provides industry frameworks to support solution deployment and integration. Frameworks give you flexibility to deploy multiple solutions at the pace the makes sense for your business and allows you to reuse what you already have in your IT portfolio. This makes implementation faster and lower risk than alternative approaches. A core banking transformation program optimizes or replaces banks’ back offices “ More than 40% of banks that undertake core banking replacement will fail to achieve the business objectives used to justify the strategy.” Source: Gartner, Oct. 2008 70-80% of most core banking transformation projects have little to do with which ISV package is selected. (Think: Customization, testing, data migration, systems integration, process improvements, etc). Bottom Line: IBM’s Banking Industry Framework offers a progressive renovation (vs. “big bang”) discipline. This helps global bankers radically reduce costs & complexity while optimizing growth, efficiency & resilience (<1 Launched 168 new products in 6 months, generating an immediate $120M+ in new revenue Successfully implemented branch-sharing partnership with Korean government-owned postal bank 1.7-year ROI   - The challenge: Rural Servicios Informáticos (RSI) is the outsourced IT services provider for all of Spain’s rural savings banks. It needed to replace an aging legacy core banking system with one that would reduce its operational costs and provide the modern functionality and flexibility required by its member banks.

  • Rational on z
  • New software releases from Lotus now running on Enterprise z combine the productivity boost of collaboration with enterprise grade processor speed, scalability, and reliability to help people inside and outside an organization connect and collaborate faster and more reliabily --- accelerating business processes and driving growth. Here are some highlights in the benefits: ECM integration provided by Quickr 8.5 and available on Enterprise z brings end-to-end ECM integration into Team Places creating a very familiar and quickly used front end to Enterprise Content Management. These repositories can also be accessed directly from common desktop tools like Lotus Notes, Sametime, Symphony, MS Outlook, Office, and Windows Explorer. Easy yet secure for supporting distributed teams to find the information they need fast to accelerate project completion. Presence, chat and online meetings provided by Sametime 8.5.1 -- which is now available on Enterprise z -- make it easy for people to find, reach and collaborate INSTANTLY with others – while also reducing costs (travel, telephone, plus audio- and Web-conferencing services). This translate into faster problem resolution, project and task completion for individual and teams working inside and outside the organization. Add to that the delivery of key services to multiple devices and platforms and you have a more comprehensive, flexible, and cost-effective collaborative solution for distributed teams and mobile workers than our competitors can provide. PROOF POINTS: For example, Celina Insurance [stated in an external reference] saved up to 50% on phone and staffing costs by providing these more flexible collaborative services to agents and teams across several distributed offices empowering them to deliver faster higher quality service to customers. Policy turnaround times reduced from weeks to days by integrating and automating business processes that span Celina and its agents; faster, better service to agents and their customers due to integrated systems and real-time collaboration; being “easy to do business with” secures agent loyalty; 50 percent reduction in phone calls and costs due to instant messaging option, Now providing the support for zEnterprise, organizations like Celina can make sure that these business critical collaborative capabilities are reliable 24/7 and that content is managable and easily accessible across 1000s of employees in the office and in the field. The Delaware County Bank and Trust states in an external reference that it uses team rooms and real time collaboration on a variety of devices to make teams composed of office employees and agents in the field more agile is resolving customer issues.. The faster, more accurate customer service paid for the investment in ST in just 12 months. The Delaware County Bank and Trust Company employs IBM Lotus Sametime®, Lotus Quickr™ and Lotus Notes® to share accurate information in real time. Embraced quickly, IBM collaboration solutions are facilitating fast, meaningful communication and make possible very high levels of customer service. “ Client banks absolutely love it, because they can have a conversation without interrupting their daily work." - Ken Blevins, Vice President of IT, The Delaware County Bank and Trust Company Working with IBM, The Delaware County Bank and Trust Company has discovered an innovative way of working that delivers better service faster—for multiple stakeholder groups. The value derived from IBM Lotus collaborative solutions has lead to wider use, changing the way this bank does business. “ The confidence and ease of administration of the added deployment option of zEnterprise will be compelling to customers like Delaware Cty Bank and Trust. Finally, a large federal customer purchased over $1M USD Lotus software this spring on z to extend social collaboration to 170K customers and employees an external portal for them to connect and receive quality customer service and trusted information easily and quickly. This federal agency looked to IBM to provide the solution that would they could be confident would provide around the clock reliability to their employees and customers expect along with the ease of infrastructure management. Combining Websphere Portal and Lotus Connections, running on zLinux, IBM delivered a solution they are happy with.
  • System z is price competitive with distributed solutions. That doesn’t mean it is less expensive. Because it offers greater function, and lower operational costs, the up front costs (total cost of acquisition) will be more. A rough guide is about 20% more compared to approximately equivalent distributed solutions. However, the costs over the life of the solution (total cost of ownership) will be less with a mainframe based solution due to lower operational costs. This chart summarizes the ‘solution editions’ offering. These are pre-configured solutions to address the specific applications listed. More are being announced all the time, so this should be considered a partial list.
  • Sometimes you hear folks say that mainframe skills are greying and retiring. By the time the PC is 45 years old, there will be lots of greying and retiring PC weenies too. To address the skills issue, many IBM customers have worked with IBM to approach universities and colleges about teaching mainframe courses. IBM has developed course material and makes it freely available to educational institutions. Customers agree to hire students on a full-time or internship basis. The universities and colleges use the course material to teach classes on mainframe technical topics, thus creating a new generation of mainframe technical specialists. SHARE, the North American user group, also has a special program for younger mainframers called zNextGen.

  • Here we see an innovative implementation by the Universita di Bari. The university developed cloud solutions – delivering powerful computing to local businesses One application is an online auction system for fishermen to use while they are out in their boats catching fish Press release: http://blogs.eweek.com/ibm-oracle/content/business_intelligence_/system_z_proving_to_be_a_big_catch_for_fishermen.html Fish Market Fishermen can use a "touch screen" installed on their boats to describe which kind of fish they are catching. If that fish is in demand by the market, the solution starts an electronic auction. If the bid price is below certain level the fish sale is redirected to non-profit company, e.g. soup kitchen. If the price is above the level, the solution automatically specifies the quantity to be distributed into boxes ready for shipping and distribution upon arrival. Solution is available on the zCloud for use by different fish markets (distributed on territory). Wine market Winemakers at up to 60 cooperative wineries are able to determine market demand for various types of wines by accessing the cloud computing-based systems, then package and ship wines demanding the highest price.   MoniCA: Monitoraggio e Controllo Adattivo Logistics solution that tracks and collects data in real time from trucks (e.g. temperature, humidity, shocks and routes). Solution will be available on the zCloud to serve different logistics companies.
  • Allianz Australia was running out of power in their data center and could no longer add any more servers to their infrastructure They consolidated 60 Intel servers with Windows applications onto a single System z Realized a 90% reduction in energy consumption Saving $1m in facilities, HW and SW costs Their investment was paid back in just over a year
  • One of the first clients we worked with is a retail business running SAP for there financials. The data serving component is on DB2 for z/OS with application servers spread across several Power based systems. The SAP environment is one key application encompassed by a highly complex infrastructure. Some of the challenges noted were the difficulty had trying coordinate monitoring, application maintenance and testing across platforms. They noted their hardware microcode updates required outages and multiple monitoring tools were used per server type with different processes by site and location. Finally, when the team traced the path of a transaction it was discovered that it required no less than 12 hops across the network to complete a transaction. The environment with zEnterprise has the SAP data server on DB2 z/OS with application serving on Power 7 Blades integrated in a zBX and managed by the Unified Resource Manager. The benefits noted were straightforward, consistency of business controls, ability to monitor and manage the application from end to end and as well as the benefit of consolidating skills and software costs by streamlining the tool choices. In the course of the exercise the client was also able to identify benefit associated with the private network associated with zEnterprise. There is preliminary belief that the use of the private data network from the application servers to the database will be able to eliminate the requirement for encryption and firewalls, reducing the network hops from roughly 12 down to 1. This could provide the benefit of lowered cost and improve response time across an end to end transaction.
  • This customer provides an application that automates the tax processing of receipts for small businesses For example the bakery or the bucher send their receipts per fax and the receipt is stored in a DB2 database. After that the receipt will be virus scanned and an OCR processing follows to send the receipt values to the tax consultant of the bucher, bakery, etc. The small business can then login to the application to see the status of the receipt. In addition to System z, CICS and DB2, the application requires WebSphere on Power, Windows on Intel and there is a desire to enhance with Web Services driven by DataPower. The challenges identified in their workshop were that thier limited staff and complexity limited the ability to respond to new function requests in a timely fashion. Also the pure cost of staff to maintain a multi-platform, complex infrastructure was very challenging to the organization. The environment with zEnterprise has data and some business logic using DB2 z/OS and CICS, additional business logic and application serving resides on Power 7 Blades integrated in a zBX and managed by the Unified Resource Manager. The benefits noted a simply increase in network speed by 10x. Their data center today runs strictly across 1GB. In addition they saw value in the ability to monitor and manage the application from end to end. It was also noted that being a smaller enterprise, with staffing challenges, the packaging of zEnterprise and zBX being pre integrated and pre tested by IBM at the plant, was going to save them time and minimize human intervention errors.

  • Let’s get a deeper understanding of how the System z mainframe technologies delivers better results
  • Today’s applications are spread across many platforms. Each with interconnections that introduce management and security issues. What if we could consolidate all these servers onto a zEnterprise? In this example, say we take all the green parts and consolidate those such that we can manage them from one common interface. Look at the reduction in physical interconnections, space, power, and management.
  • A code execution vulnerability would let a program execute arbitrary code “outside” it’s own virtual machine. This might mean code tampering with memory belonging to another virtual machine, or the hipervisor. In the worst case, the entire machine could be taken over, or taken down.
  • Main message – This is a systems discussion to simplify and drive down costs in the data center Discuss with data center manager, CIO, or CFO zEnterprise can consolidate the broadest set of workloads The platform with the ability to do that will be the lowest cost platform Lowest processor acquisition costs Simplified networks Lowest labor costs Lowest power consumption IBM can also deliver similar cost savings with fit for purpose storage Lowest storage costs zEnterprise enables you to go after workloads previously untouchable Any distributed workload, not just hybrids Achieve better qualities of service No competitor can match it Push Sun, HP, and Dell out of the data center
  • In days gone by, we would position the mainframe towards the mid-to-bottom of this chart. However, newer generations of System z, and zEnterprise, expand the range of workloads which are cost effective on z. There is no simple answer to the question “which workloads go on z” any more. Although, the case can still be made that the workloads towards the top of this chart might be more cost effective on a zBX than a z196. The faster processor of the z196 allows workloads toward the top of this chart to be more cost effective. The ability to attach and manage p and x86 blades improves the cost effectiveness of workloads towards the top of this chart too. This takes a rather technical approach to workload classification, but some would argue that even this is too simplistic. It might be better to skip this chart in favor of the previous one instead.
  • Heavy I/O workload configuration: IBM WebSphere ND, Monitoring Software, 4-core Intel server, database inquiries and commits Heavy Workloads configuration: IBM WebSphere ND, Monitoring Software, 8-core Intel server, with calculations and transactions Light Workloads configuration: IBM WebSphere ND, Monitoring Software, 4-core Intel server, in memory Web response
  • Each CEC can connect to 4 zBXs. Each zBX rack has 2 chassis. Each chassis holds 14 blades. i.e., a zBX holds 28 blades. Light: 7000/36 = 195 blades => 195/28 = 7 zBX’s Heavy: need 500/2 = 250 blades => 9 zBX’s Heavy I/O: need 2500/240 = 10.42* 32 = 334 cores = 5 zCECs
  • Consider the cost of assembling thousands of parts in the Intel case. Much fewer parts in zEnterprise which is already integrated.
  • This compares what the customer spent and is spending to run the Intel environment to what the customer could spend to run the same workloads on zEnterprise.
  • zEnterprise about virtual systems. We often show a 3 tiered approach… client (the presentation layer), application server, and database server. Theoretically, virtualizing the application servers, which is what VMWare is all about, should result in operational savings. Theoretically the ability to move a virtual server to another physical server should help, but real life isn’t that simple. That’s only one part of the picture.
  • This chart represents the business components of a large North American Bank. This chart has the actual business application function names and shows the connections between them from a function standpoint. This is your basic 3 tier architected system… not simple in reality, is it? It’s not just presentation, application and database layers. It is far more complicated than that in reality. Transition: let’s see what that would look like if it was implemented in a distributed system…
  • This chart represents the business components of a large North American Bank. Each one of the ovals represents a machine. A bunch of them in the top right are running websphere, for example. Using vMotion to move a virtual machine from one server to another is a small part of the puzzle. All the other issues of multiple interconnects with the security issues they present, still remain. As does the “silo” management approach. VMWare propagates the “fit for politics” approach. Transition: let’s see what happens if we virtualize most of this on a zEnterprise….
  • In this chart, everything, except the end user devices, has been moved into a zEnterprise. Some of it might be on zOS, some on Linux on z, some on AIX on blades, some on x86 Linux on blades, whatever makes sense. But it’s all managed centrally, with the benefits outlines at the bottom of the chart. Note that there are no more physical LANs connecting all these distributed systems. They have been replaced with virtual LANs on a private data network, for greater security and fewer points of failure. Key is that the business applications, and the programming model, are unchanged. We just moved them onto a superior infrastructure.
  • Co-locating the application with the DB server reduces network hops, thus improving response time, reducing latency, increasing security, and managability. Hipersockets are used for memory-to-memory speed LAN communication between Linux virtual machines and zOS. A zVM virtual LAN is used for linux to linux communitions. And the IEDN is used for z196 to zBX links. All are much faster and more secure than an ordinary wired LAN.
  • I would recommend using the much earlier chart that shows all the network hops involved with multi-tiered distributed systems and a z back end database. Type 2 JDBC is takes much less CPU than a type 4 access. In other words, local access is less “expensive” than remote access. However, don’t forget that some of the type 4 CPU use will be offloaded onto a zIIP if one is available. This won’t happen for type 2.
  • This is an example with specific measurements of co-location response time improvement. Only use this, and the next, if you really want to dig into this topic.
  • While we have expanded the options available for deploying Linux workloads, utilizing Linux on z can drive significant financial benefits, particularly for larger scale deployments. With the new zEnterprise, each IFL delivers significantly more performance and capacity for a substantially lower price than System z10. With the ability to consolidate the workloads of thousands of distributed servers on to a single z196, the TCA of System z is now lower than some Intel environments for certain workloads. What’s more, with this scale of consolidation you can reduce physical floor space requirements and energy consumption by up to 90 and 80% respectively. Finally, the introduction of the Unified Resource manager brings improved workload management to a Linux on System z environment, further improving its ability to deliver great service to the business.
  • Software costs for Linux on z are lower compared to distributed platforms because fewer licenses are required. Distributed software, including Linux on z, are usually priced “per core” (per PVU for IBM distributed software). But z required fewer cores (and PVUs) compared to other platforms.
  • With zEnterprise, mainframe clients have greater flexibility in deploying System z software solutions that span other system architectures. This gives users added flexibility to align business requirements with application service levels, while at the same time, take advantage of new mainframe technology that helps integrate system and workload management across the multi-tier, multi-architecture environment. It is important to note that applications deployed in a Linux-on-z/VM environment will continue to offer qualities of service that are not available with distributed systems or zEnterprise blades. A Linux-on-z/VM environment offers cost, scalability, security and workload management advantages for hosting a large number of virtualized servers. This includes the ability to share System z hardware assets, like I/O adapters, memory, and network cards with z/OS and other System z operating systems running in different partitions on the same machine. zEnterprise gives clients greater freedom to deploy multi-tier software solutions on the right technology base. This too is a key aspect of a smarter IT infrastructure.
  • The distributed marketplace is fixated on benchmarks. But they are typically single workload benchmarks. Z runs multiple mixed workloads, and does it very well thank you. Use this chart only if you are going to get into the next one, othewise skip it.
  • Try to avoid this discussion. We don’t want to get into a benchmark fight. While we might win today with z196, that won’t last. At some point in the future, some other vendor will announce, and maybe even ship, a faster chip. Our cache advantage will probably continue, but not the raw cycle speed. Your competitive sales case has to be based on something other than raw cycle speed because that is a transitory advantage.

    • Business processes and the applications that support them are becoming more service oriented, modular in their construction, and integrated.
    • The components of these services are implemented on a variety of architectures and hosted on heterogeneous IT infrastructures.
    • Approaches to managing these infrastructures along the lines of platform architecture boundaries cannot optimize: alignment of IT with business objectives; responsiveness to change; resource utilization; business resiliency; or overall cost of ownership.
    • We need better approach: The ability to manage the IT infrastructure and Business Application as an integrated whole.

  • Summary of Competitive perspective
    • zEnterprise takes a solution focus managing virtual machines across System z and Bladecenters
      • Alternative VMs focus on a single server type or a portion of an end to end solution
    • Collaboration between System z and Blades provides an operational advantage by:
      • Sharing data between servers and therefore reducing data volumes by 40-60%
      • Leveraging real time data access to provide Insight versus the hindsight provided by batch data moves between alternative server implementations
      • Simplifying the provisioning of data toward specific workloads
      • Reduction of risk and simplification of governance and compliance as a shared operations model to
        • avoid the pitfalls of separate security domains used in distributed environments
        • reduce the number of security intrusion points
        • reduce the number of points of failure and leverage components with a longer mean time between failure than a pure distributed environment.
    • Linux for System z virtual servers are as low as $1000 per server over 3 years or roughly $1/day
      • These server images will benefit from legendary System z availability, security and systems management
    • Customers that have moved distributed Web Service apps that access z/OS data onto z/OS have experienced a number of benefits:
      • 100% improvement in performance by leveraging in memory data instead of network attached
      • 50% reduction in DB2 for z/OS processing as it reduces network attached connection management
      • Improvements in availability through the reduction of points of failure and built in Parallel Sysplex automation
      • Reduced risk and simplified compliance as a single administrative domain is in place
      • Significant savings can also be seen by moving web applications to Linux on z and using hipersockets to access DB2 data on z/OS
  • Summary of Competitive Perspective
    • Businesses can add capacity to existing System z and Bladecenter servers without the need to repartition application workloads.
      • Processing capacity can be added or provisioned on demand to cross platform workloads via common hardware management console.
        • This can be far simpler and faster to deploy than adding new servers to a distributed processing cluster.
    • Redundant and spare components are available in the zEnterprise on both the System z and Bladecenter processors. In addition, many change management processes may be implemented while workloads continue to operate.
      • This reduces the number of planned and unplanned outages that might be experienced in a purely distributed server environment.
      • Call home capabilities of System z apply to zBX to improve overall availability.
      • Consultant studies demonstrate that reducing down time will decrease financial losses due to outages. Financial impact varies by industry and length of outage.
    • Efficiency
      • Up to 80% reduction in energy and floor space compared to distributed systems
      • Up to 70% reduction in labor compared to distributed systems
