  • Slide 1: Title Chart   Hello…welcome…and thank you for taking the time to be here with us today. It is a great day for IBM innovation and we couldn’t be more excited to share with you details of what is, without question, our most significant x86 announcement to date. I’ll first set the stage for why this innovation is so important and then discuss why our revolutionary x86 systems will allow clients to completely rethink how they use IBM solutions to support their enterprise. This is about ushering in a new era of x86 systems thinking… So let’s begin.
  • Unlike some of our competitors who have a blade everything message and strategy, IBM offers a robust portfolio built from client requirements. X-Architecture has continued to be the cornerstone of the portfolio and continues to maintain leadership while the underlying technologies and how they are delivered constantly evolve to meet your needs. We offer a full range of servers from tower or rack servers designed to run virtual workloads or single applications that can be implemented by itself or in extremely large installations to high-performance, enterprise servers and clusters and iDataPlex for HPC workloads and cloud computing. We have a complete portfolio that recognizes that customers need a wide range of platforms to fit their varying workload needs. This is a picture of the some of the IBM System x and BladeCenter portfolio. While not all of our offerings our shown here, you can get sense of where we consider our unique offerings in the scale-out or scale-up continuum. The offerings shown in green are the first entries in our new generation line. The towers in the black box will follow in the second quarter.
  • We have exciting innovation built into our LS42 – we can scale from a single wide 2-socket blade to a double-wide 4-socket in about 20 seconds No one else in the industry can do this – HP and Sun both have monolythic 4-socket blades We’ve had this design since the LS41, but now we’ve got a special pricing rebate we’re working with AMD to offer MP processors at DP prices With IBM, customers can buy a scalable, 2-socket blade for the same price as HP offers a non-scalable 2-socket With us, you get investment protection at no extra cost
  • Slide 6: Traditional server paradigms need to change So you have these pressures of efficiency and power…utilization…You’re busting at the seams because systems management is consuming most your budget. Something has to give….We all love x86, but the reality is… it’s tired. In x86 systems, we have seen an evolutionary pattern emerge over the last 28 years. IBM introduced the first x86 personal computer.. which served us well as the PC that sat on its side. As we built more innovation into the PC we eventually stood it on end and began using it as a PC server. Then we brought the pc server into the data center as rack servers....which again served us well until the economics of the pc server started to have a negative affect on the overall efficiency, utilization and manageability of the data center. The next evolution….true enterprise class x86 computing.....and the PC server…and its limited attributes…doesn’t have a place in enterprise class x86 systems….it is not optimized for the problems that IT organizations will face going forward… it is not designed to deliver the capabilities required to deal with the economic realities of the next decade and beyond. It is time to take the PC out of the PC server.
  • Slide 7: It’s time to redefine the x86 server landscape SPEAKER NOTES: The time has come to redefine the x86 server landscape…and again….usher in a new era of intelligent x86 systems. That means offering clients systems that are optimized for a Smarter Planet. To do this requires breakthrough innovation at the system level to eliminate the bottlenecks of most demanding x86 environments. More specifically, memory has become the key limitation on overall system efficiency, utilization and manageability. As a result, new thinking is required to rebalance the system and offer the flexibility to add memory without adding processors. Only IBM can bring the deep knowledge of systems engineering and design necessary to insure the next x86 system architecture can support smarter planet demands. It is a fundamental part of our IBM heritage….
  • Slide 8: IBM has a history of marketplace-leading innovation … .A heritage that is based on delivering breakthrough innovations. For over a decade IBM has committed to x86 investment. Over the last 10 years, IBM delivered the first scalable 16 socket x86 server. We delivered over 100 #1 benchmarks. We introduced advanced system reliability features to x86 like hot swap memory… and we were the first x86 system to shatter the 1 million TPM-C barrier. IBM has continually invested, engineered and achieved innovations on behalf our clients….it’s time to take x86 to an entirely new level.
  • Slide 9: A smarter planet demands smarter systems That next level is helping clients build a smarter planet…..but to build a smarter planet demands smarter systems…systems that can scale quickly and efficiently….remove memory bottlenecks…maximize utilization…and optimize workloads. Information technology has taken us a long way in the past 50 years. But seizing the opportunities before us depends on clients implementing intelligence across their technology infrastructures….especially in x86. Until now, there were significant limitations in the ability to do that in x86….. Today, that all changes.
  • Slide 10: IBM System x and BladeCenter Today we can have a new conversation with clients. One that is based on ushering in a new era of intelligent x86…one that is based on the revolutionary fifth generation of IBM Enterprise X Architecture…eX5 ! With eX5 IBM brings true, enterprise-class capabilities to the x86 market….including our BladeCenter platform. Memory is no longer a gating factor as clients will now have six times the memory capacity and two thirds the subsequent software costs…all while offering the lowest x86 acquisition and deployment costs in the industry. With eX5….IBM has embraced a systems approach to x86 computing the competition can’t begin to match… and the reason is again based on differentiating IBM innovation.
  • 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….xx xx 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.
  • What are performance enhancements, what is the cost perspectives, hardware and software savings
  • We have exciting innovation built into our LS42 – we can scale from a single wide 2-socket blade to a double-wide 4-socket in about 20 seconds No one else in the industry can do this – HP and Sun both have monolythic 4-socket blades We’ve had this design since the LS41, but now we’ve got a special pricing rebate we’re working with AMD to offer MP processors at DP prices With IBM, customers can buy a scalable, 2-socket blade for the same price as HP offers a non-scalable 2-socket With us, you get investment protection at no extra cost
  • IBM servers have a proven track record. We continue to innovate because we know that customers demands will not stop. We are the leading platform for business-critical applications from industry leaders like SAP and Oracle. We have the right portfolio and fantastic line of new generation offerings to complement your business needs. We are the ideal platform to master the critical challenges you confront in today’s unrelenting competitive and dynamic environment. We have a vision to build your dynamic IT infrastructure that takes out cost, improves your IT management, and offers you the security and flexibility to grow and stay competitive. So, as you look at where your business is going, think about what technology you will need to get you there: technology that is built on an innovative vision for how to turn the challenges of tomorrow into opportunities.
  • Slide 12: Closing Slide IBM continues the systems journey to help clients build a smarter planet with eX5. It represents IBM’s largest R&D investment ever in x86 technologies… At the core of the eX5 development was the imperative to take x86 systems innovation to an entirely new level of capability, one that can solve true enterprise-class business challenges. The timing could not be better…the market is demanding solutions based on industry standards, coupled with unique innovation that allows clients to take advantage of capabilities never before available in x86 servers. IBM is again doing what it does so well…… innovating on behalf of clients. I am now pleased to introduce __________ who will give us a more detailed understanding of the eX5 offerings and value to our clients.   Thank you!
