  2. 2. Client challenges with enterprise workloads Database, Virtualization, Transaction processing Memory Capacity Do More With Less Simplify Restricted server A need to reduce Speed time from utilization operational expenses deployment to production Bigger workloads Having to cut license fees and energy costs Optimized Difficulty supporting more, bigger virtual Investing in only what performance for their machines, growing is needed workload needs databases and Get more out of the Having to get the increases in people, IT, and most out of existing transaction spending they have data centers. processing. Flexibility to get the IT they need, the way they need it Difficult challenges create an opportunity for innovation 2 © 2010 IBM Corporation
