Systems optimized for your workloads

As your company grows and as new regulations add pressure on your data center, you may find yourself forced to add more and more server capacity—often escalating the systems management burden and increasing power consumption. With IBM System x® and BladeCenter® virtualization solutions, new workloads do not have to mean new servers. Enhanced with IBM X-Architecture® innovation, these x86 servers offer flexible configurations equipped with enhanced memory, high-speed I/O and industry-leading availability and reliability features—a combination designed to help reduce operating costs, simplify management and keep your virtualized infrastructure up and running.

At the same time manage your information more intelligently with storage solutions from IBM. With data growing at 40% or more per year, companies can’t address challenges in a traditional way and technologies such as: virtualization; thin provisioning; de-duplication; compression and automated tiering; are required. Let IBM show you how our storage efficiency solutions not only improve productivity, but at the same time reduce costs.

Come and see for yourself how IBM can help you meet your business needs with increased server utilization, reduced system management complexity, lower power and cooling costs, reduced demand for data center floor space and lower IT total cost of ownership.

IBM POWER Systems Roadshow

We live on a planet where data is exploding at an annual compound rate of 57% and nearly 6 terabytes of information are being exchanged over the Internet every second. Ironically, the average server in the average business runs at only 10% utilization. Scratch the surface and you’ll find that there are only two kinds of systems, those that can adapt to the needs of a smarter planet, and those that can’t.

A new kind of system performance is needed to respond to today's business challenges. Performance that provides breakthrough agility to capitalize on new opportunities; performance that provides a foundation for growth while managing business risk; performance that helps companies do more with less. Power Systems helps businesses meet these new performance challenges. Power Systems based on POWER7® processor technology help companies deliver new services faster, deliver higher qualities of service, and deliver services with superior economics.

Join us at an IBM POWER Systems roadshow in a city near you and learn more about how IBM Smarter Systems can help you power your business.
