Everyone knows what 'performance' meant for IT in the past. However the IT landscape is evolving rapidly. Plus, as processes become more interrelated and complex, IT is being called upon to solve challenging new problems – and implement new projects, both with higher service levels and in a more cost effective manner. IBM® has the systems, software and expertise to help clients implement projects that make their IT an enabler of innovation and a catalyst for business change in this new world of critical information.
Today’s IT performance means delivering services faster, with higher quality and with superior economics. The emerging measures of IT performance are around agility and the ability to help the business capitalise on new opportunities. IT is measured on providing an infrastructure that can handle rapid growth and manage business risk while meeting higher required service levels. Of course it is expected that new services will be delivered within tighter budget constraints – with IT expected to do more with less and find the most efficient solutions possible.
Designed for virtualised consolidation of business-critical workloads, the IBM Power 770 delivers on performance, availability, efficiency and virtualisation in a way that is distinctive in the industry. PowerVM virtualisation enables continuous, dynamic resource adjustments across all partitions and operating environments to optimise performance and enable higher utilisation levels while optimising energy usage. Supported environments include AIX, IBM i, Linux® for Power applications, all on the same system.
