Enterprise systems are cloud ready
To drive change, businesses must shift IT investment from maintenance to initiatives that generate new value. In a recent IBM study of CIOs, 60% ranked cloud computing as high priority in their strategic plans to help them implement that shift. Organisations can drive new levels of infrastructure efficiency and agility with a scalable and secure enterprise private cloud. CIOs can ensure the service and security levels their lines of business
require for the most critical business applications with enterprise systems. Enterprise systems provide a centrally managed, virtualised pool of heterogeneous servers and storage that can drive efficiency, improve service delivery and reduce costs by maximising resource utilisation and staff productivity.
Enterprise systems offer:
Enterprise systems feature a “shared everything” infrastructure with a centrally managed virtual pool of server and storage resources, enabling private clouds or managed services that lower costs by maximising resource utilisation and staff productivity.
Enterprise systems feature dynamic workload and systems management across all key IT resources for maximising return on assets.
Enterprise systems feature virtualisation technologies that provide unmatched scale and highest qualities of service and security that are necessary for deployment of critical services in a private cloud or through a managed service provider.
Enterprise systems enable key resources to be added permanently or temporarily on demand to ensure that IT can respond to the fluctuating demands of the business through automated provisioning and dynamic allocation of IT resources.
Cloud agile storage, such as the IBM DS8870 enterprise disk system, is designed for performance with innovative flash optimisation, tiering, exceptional reliability, security and scalability.
Enterprise systems are packaged for financial efficiency by optimising cash flow through a “lease, refresh, and scale up” approach to asset management and service delivery.
Cloud: One good idea, two great solutions
Building a secure, scalable and dynamic cloud infrastructure is critical for freeing up budget locked in operations and maintenance. And whether it’s a private or hybrid infrastructure, IBM has two efficient systems to make your cloud visions a reality.
