  16. 16. Smarter Systems for a Smarter Planet Systems Director: Flex Node Partitioning, Auto Node Failover….  Customer Pain Points: – In a 2 node configuration, what is my exposure? What kind of high availability features are in tact? Answer: Systems Director deploys Automatic Node Failover…..bringing down the 2 node cluster with a soft reboot and bringing up the healthy node while systems director identified and brings resolution to the failed node. – In a 2 node configuration, what kind of flexibility is in tact? What are my options? Answer: Depending on the business, you may have 2 independent nodes during the day and through Systems Director set policies for a single node batch processing server. Client may bring the single node and take 1 off-line during downtime to save on 17 energy/cooling costs. © 2010 IBM Corporation

  24. 24. Smarter Systems for a Smarter Planet  Hi [Mr./Ms. CUSTOMER NAME]  Introducing the new IBM BladeCenter® HX5! The HX5 enables unprecedented performance and utilization in a blade form factor for database and virtualization. With MAX5 scalability, the HX5 blade offers memory capacity of up to 640 GB—in four-wide blade, the most memory of any server in its class. The result is optimal server utilization with more virtual machines per system. With expanded memory capacity you get up to 78% more virtual machines for the same license cost.  Easy to own, manage and upgrade with pay-as-you-grow expansion, the HX5 blade server helps protect your investments over the long term. Attached is a short proposal outlining the benefits of the HX5 blade to your company. Please contact me to discuss this proposal and the specifics on how we can help you cut costs, better utilize assets, and simplify your IT infrastructure complexity.  Sincerely,  Alex Alvord  Zones Inc 25 © 2010 IBM Corporation
