Over the years my residents and I have looked for images for our IBM Redbooks publications. It always takes a little digging around to find the resources so I decided it was time to put the links in a place I could find.
These resources will help you create your presentations and all of these libraries can be accessed by anyone outside of IBM. If you know of any others, feel free to shout out and I will update this post.
Visio has been used for a long time to create accurate images of IBM servers. Files are generally created from the CAD source used to design the machines. If you have a Visio license, these import well into PowerPoint or other documents to create professional looking content. Access to the images requires you to download entire libraries and sort through them yourself. The last update I've seen for Power Systems dates back to 2014. You can find the content here: http://www.visiocafe.com/ibm.htm
IBM Interactive Product Catalog
For interactive 3D models of servers complete with annotations of the various features, IBM has loaded several images to its Interactive Product Catalog library. preselected views allow you to see the product from the front, side, or interior. By placing your cursor on the image, you can rotate, spin, and zoom. The library works from inside a typical browser, or you can install a desktop client on Mac or Windows. A product overview and specifications are available from a drop-down menu. Find it here: http://m.kaon.com/c/ib
IBM Digital Asset Manager
IBM Digital Asset Manager (IBM DAM) is the new Image Central repository. You can use your IBM credentials to access if you are inside IBM's firewall, or use your IBM ID if you are outside. Just be sure you don't use a popup blocker on your browser otherwise authentication will fail. And keep in mind that filters are progressive, so you need to clear your filters if you want to start your search again. The images stored in this repository are of high quality (large) and are what IBM uses in producing its data sheets and digital marketing materials. You should probably edit them down a bit before using them unless you want to blow up your laptop. Click on this link to launch it: https://dam.ibm.com/media/
