  • Hello, I’m _____________. Thanks for taking the time today to learn more about the System x high volume portfolio of x86 offerings and how IBM System x solutions can help solve your business concerns. I’ll talk about how the high volume portfolio of System x servers separate themselves from the competition and deliver value for you and your business.

  • IBM ® Systems Director Topology IBM Systems Director is a three-tiered architecture consisting of: Management Console(s) web Interface IBM System Director Server which includes the Application Logic and database IBM Systems Director Agent which is code that runs on a managed system (Servers, Desktops, Laptops, SNMP devices, CIM devices) and communicates with the IBM Systems Director application The IBM Systems Director there-tier design supports thousands of managed nodes/systems. An upward integration module supports integration with higher level management applications from Tivoli, Computer Associates, Hewlett Packard, Microsoft. Transition Line: Let’s take a look at the IBM Systems Director agents in more depth
  • One of the more exciting features on System x servers is IBM Systems Director Service and Support Manager. This is a no-charge “call-home” plug-in to automatically report hardware problems and collect system service information for monitored systems. The service and support manager can monitor, track, and capture system hardware errors and service information and report them directly to IBM support. This means that IBM can send you your warranty parts for repair before you even know you have a problem. The flowchart shows the course of actions from the error reporting to Systems director through the call at IBM support.
