IBM PureFlex System

IBM introduced the first expert integrated systems, IBM PureSystems®, in 2012 to fundamentally change the economics and experience of IT. Over 10,000 clients rely on IBM technology to optimize their social, mobile, and big data workloads on cloud infrastructure. PureSystems solutions build on this cloud experience, integrating it into the system to improve efficiency and simplify deployment.

The simplicity of a PureFlex System begins with acquisition. You can choose one of two predefined and fully integrated, optimized configurations as your starting point. Your solution will ship to you as a complete, fully-tested and configured package of compute, storage and networking resources on which you and IBM Business Partners can customize a solution. With built-in expertise for deployment, management, and optimization (including cloud capabilities) to simplify key tasks across all of your IT resources, your system is designed to deploy quickly and be easy to manage. You can select the capabilities you need based on your target workload and environment. Each configuration is available with your choice of IBM POWER7+™ based or Intel™ processor-based compute nodes and an array of networking and storage options.

The following PureFlex System offerings are available:

A PureFlex System consists of:

Optional Flex System compute nodes, Flex System chassis, PureFlex System 42U racks, Flex System 25U racks with PureFlex Express, and Flex System Managers can be ordered after the basic requirements for the PureFlex System are met. These additional orders are indicated by feature #EFDF ( Express Expansion Option), feature # EFDH (Enterprise Expansion), or #EFDE (Custom Expansion). The Flex System Manager is not available with EFDF. Storwize V7000 Disk Systems can be ordered separately without meeting the requirements for the PureFlex System.

The following defines Express and Enterprise Expansion components:

Express Expansion and components - single chassis only without rack mounted switches or top-of-rack (Ethernet or Fibre Channel):

Mandatory

Refer to the HDD and SSD options for the first controller.

Optional MTMs:

Enterprise Expansion and components for Single Chassis:

Mandatory

Optional MTMs

Enterprise MTMs and components for Multiple Chassis:

Mandatory

Optional MTMs

1
Options that drive rack and PDU support
2

IBM PureFlex Solution for IBM i

PureFlex Solution for IBM i can be the perfect alternative to complex distributed environments reaping the benefits of centralized management and resource sharing. Instead of maintaining multiple rack or tower systems, you can run your business in a single footprint consisting of a mix of server technologies and workloads including both POWER and x86 based compute nodes. By consolidating their IBM i and Windows applications onto a single integrated business platform, small and midsized clients are offered an attractive alternative to reduce IT costs and complexity.

IBM i integrates a trusted combination of relational database, security, Web services, networking and storage management capabilities. The system provides a broad and highly stable database and middleware foundation for efficiently deploying business processing applications. With support for over 5,000 solutions from over 2,500 ISVs, i solutions are offered through an extensive, highly skilled worldwide network of IBM Business Partners backed by trusted services and support infrastructure from IBM. The PureFlex System is a fully integrated platform with unified management of compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources that utilize built-in Patterns of Expertise based on IBM's decades of experience and thousands of client deployments. With the inclusion of a 3-year warranty, the lease price of the new IBM PureFlex Solution for IBM i will often be less than what many i clients pay today for a stand-alone rack or tower system.

IBM PureFlex Solution for SmartCloud Desktop Infrastructure

The IBM PureFlex Solution for SmartCloud Desktop Infrastructure offering is optimized to deliver superior performance and flexibility to meet clients' unique desktop virtualization business needs:

The IBM PureFlex Solution for SmartCloud Desktop Infrastructure configuration is based on the IBM PureFlex Enterprise configuration and is available with both the Intel processor-based IBM Flex System x222 and Flex System x240 compute nodes. The configuration also includes two management nodes and two storage nodes along with integrated storage. The Flex System compute nodes combined with the IBM Flex System V7000 Storage node offer clients both block and file storage for nonpersistent and persistent deployments. In addition to two Virtual Desktop Management nodes, the offering includes systems management capabilities with IBM Flex System Manager™ to easily and efficiently manage virtual desktops within the integrated infrastructure.

IBM Electronic Services

Electronic Service Agent and the IBM Electronic Support web portal are dedicated to providing fast, exceptional support to IBM Systems customers. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tool is a no-additional-charge tool that proactively monitors and reports hardware events, such as system errors, performance issues, and inventory. The Electronic Service Agent tool can help you stay focused on your company's strategic business initiatives, save time, and spend less effort managing day-to-day IT maintenance issues. Servers enabled with this tool can be monitored remotely around the clock by IBM Support all at no additional cost to you.

Now integrated into the base operating system of AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1, and AIX 7.1, Electronic Service Agent is designed to automatically and electronically report system failures and utilization issues to IBM, which can result in faster problem resolution and increased availability. System configuration and inventory information collected by the Electronic Service Agent tool also can be viewed on the secure Electronic Support web portal, and used to improve problem determination and resolution by you and the IBM support team. To access the tool main menu, simply type "smitty esa_main", and select "Configure Electronic Service Agent." In addition, ESA now includes a powerful Web user interface, giving the administrator easy access to status, tool settings, problem information, and filters. For more information and documentation on how to configure and use Electronic Service Agent, refer to

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

The IBM Electronic Support portal is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. This portal enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems. The My Systems and Premium Search functions make it even easier for Electronic Service Agent tool-enabled customers to track system inventory and find pertinent fixes.

Benefits

Increased uptime: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to enhance the Warranty or Maintenance Agreement by providing faster hardware error reporting and uploading system information to IBM Support. This can translate to less wasted time monitoring the "symptoms," diagnosing the error, and manually calling IBM Support to open a problem record. Its 24 x 7 monitoring and reporting mean no more dependence on human intervention or off-hours customer personnel when errors are encountered in the middle of the night.

Security: The Electronic Service Agent tool is designed to be secure in monitoring, reporting, and storing the data at IBM. The Electronic Service Agent tool securely transmits either via the Internet (HTTPS or VPN) or modem, and can be configured to communicate securely through gateways to provide customers a single point of exit from their site. Communication is one way. Activating Electronic Service Agent does not enable IBM to call into a customer's system. System inventory information is stored in a secure database, which is protected behind IBM firewalls. It is viewable only by the customer and IBM. The customer's business applications or business data is never transmitted to IBM.

More accurate reporting: Since system information and error logs are automatically uploaded to the IBM Support center in conjunction with the service request, customers are not required to find and send system information, decreasing the risk of misreported or misdiagnosed errors. Once inside IBM, problem error data is run through a data knowledge management system and knowledge articles are appended to the problem record.

Customized support: Using the IBM ID entered during activation, customers can view system and support information in the "My Systems" and "Premium Search" sections of the Electronic Support Web site at

http://www.ibm.com/support/electronic

My Systems provides valuable reports of installed hardware and software using information collected from the systems by Electronic Service Agent. Reports are available for any system associated with the customer's IBM ID. Premium Search combines the function of search and the value of Electronic Service Agent information, providing advanced search of the technical support knowledgebase. Using Premium Search and the Electronic Service Agent information that has been collected from your system, customers are able to see search results that apply specifically to their systems.
