  6. 6. IBM Power SystemsIBM i – Maximize business benefits while minimizing IT costs “Our SMB clients get good value for the money and Pantheon can concentrate on its strongest added value: our ability to understand the business needs of our clients.” Meeting the needs of small to mid-sized businesses – From <50 employees up to 500 – IBM i Solution Editions: deploy in-house – Hosting option: cloud delivery Robust, fully integrated solutions – Reliable, flexible platform at minimal cost Pantheon Automation – Focus on satisfying business needs – Web-based solutions for wholesale distribution and production companies “For more than 25 years Pantheon and – ERP, CRM, WMS, Document Management, its clients have been dedicated to IBM i e-Commerce for its reliability and its flexibility.” Serving Belgium and the Netherlands Erik Versloot, Managing Director6 © 2012 IBM Corporation
  7. 7. IBM Power SystemsIBM i – Delivering Competitive Advantage “Its stability, TCO and speed of development convinced us we should not only maintain our mid-range environment, but expand it to keep it at the center of our operations for the long term. IBM i has enabled us to grow the scale of our environment, while at the same time become more nimble and resilient.” Ken Spangler, VP of IT FedEx Ground IBM i is the foundation of operations – Nearly 3 million packages picked up daily – Virtualization for flexible resource allocation – 7 to 8 million packages in the delivery and nimble growth in capacity pipeline at any one time – High system availability to meet customer – Average daily transactions exceed 1 billion expectations for near-perfect reliability – Rapid application development supports Systems provide package rating and new function, faster invoicing; optimized delivery routing; and timely, accurate tracking data Low TCO helps keep overall cost structure down, improving competitiveness7 © 2012 IBM Corporation

  9. 9. IBM Power SystemsLower Acquisition and Ongoing Costs ITG Management Brief: Value Proposition for IBM Power Systems Servers and IBM i - Minimizing Costs and Risks for Midsize Businesses; January 2011 Acquisition costs – 18% less than x86 servers with Windows Server and SQL Server databases – 43% less than x86 servers with Linux and Oracle databases Three-year ongoing costs – full time equivalent administrators – 55% less than Windows / SQL Server – 60% less than Linux / Oracle9 © 2012 IBM Corporation
  10. 10. IBM Power SystemsAcquisition Costs – Consider All the Variables Individually, x86 systems are less expensive than POWER7 systems However … there’s more to the story … the multiplier effect – Multiplication of x86 servers to handle database, application and Web serving – Multiplication of x86 servers to support development, test and production instances – Multiplication of x86 servers inflates software licensing costs – Multiplication of x86 servers inflates support costs Costs escalate further with high-end versions of software Costs escalate further when incorporating other necessities – Tools for systems management, security and clustering – Client Access Licenses (CALS) for Windows servers VMware, in practice, has been relegated to comparatively light-duty applications, limiting its effectiveness ITG Management Brief: Value Proposition for IBM Power Systems Servers and IBM i - Minimizing Costs and Risks for Midsize Businesses; January 201110 © 2012 IBM Corporation

  27. 27. IBM Power SystemsITG Status Report – Key ObservationsIBM i and Power Systems combine to reduce cost and risk Regarding personnel: Regarding personnel: Staffing levels for equivalent E1 environments Because of the highly integrated IBM i are routinely two to three times lower (for IBM i) design, dedicated DBAs are not required than for Windows and Linux servers. in most midsize installations. Regarding availability risks: Regarding availability risks: Experience among E1 users has shown that Power systems with i availability levels are typically higher – by wide margins – than for Windows and Linux servers. Regarding security and malware risks: Regarding security and malware risks: In this area, differences between IBM i, Windows and Linux environments are not merely significant – they are dramatic. IBM i is one of the most secure operating systems in existence. Security violations are rare, and malware incidents are virtually unknown.
