Invest in IBM Power Systems™ for Optimised Analytics Workloads

For a limited time, you can invest in an attractively priced Power Systems server to run optimised analytics workloads such as:

For many businesses, analytics is now mission-critical. It demands a complete solution which is available 24/7 and dictates server infrastructure which provides performance, flexibility, availability and low total cost of ownership.

Such attributes are an ideal match for IBM’s Power Systems family of servers which are specifically designed for mission-critical workloads. This is evidenced by the many thousands of businesses worldwide who depend on Power Systems to run their most important workloads day in, day out.

Likewise, IBM has a comprehensive and integrated business analytics and optimisation portfolio which offers a wealth of options for turning information into insights, leading to better business decisions and outcomes.

By bringing together the best IBM has to offer in analytics capability and server know-how, you can do more with less, plus enjoy highly flexible, reliable and secure infrastructure at a competitive price.

The promotional pricing is available when buying Power Systems to run new deployments of the software listed above, or when transferring existing implementations of the software listed above to new Power Systems servers.

Start and End Dates

Orders must be placed on IBM between June 4, 2013 and December 20, 2013 and must be shipped within 30 days of order date but no later than December 31, 2013. Quote promotion number A313-075

Eligibility & Substantiation

This promotion is made available to IBM End User clients. In order to take advantage of the promotional pricing, IBM will require evidence of analytics software workloads being deployed onto the Power Systems server(s). You are encouraged to work with your IBM rep for Power Systems who will collate the information necessary for IBM to approve the promotional pricing. IBM will review the submission, and if approved will provide an approval number which is lodged at time of order to allow application of the discounts offered under this promotion. More information is provided in the “Terms and Conditions” section below.

Qualifying Power Systems Products & Pricing

Eight configurations are offered for discount under this promotion – four “small” and “large” configurations of Power Systems models 710, 720, 730 and 740. The difference between the “small” and “large” configuration of a given server model is memory size. Small configuration machines are suitable for example for supporting between 10 and 50 Cognos BI users. The large configuration machines can support between 50 and 200 Cognos BI users. Deciding which specific model to choose will be dictated by application performance and system expansion requirements plus budget. You are strongly urged to work with your IBM Rep who can help with server sizing and selection. You remain responsible for ensuring normal sizing procedures are followed to ensure the configuration selected is suitable for deploying the analytics workload within your business. The tables below list the system configurations in more detail. You may increase the specification of the server by adding more CPU cores, memory, I/O features and system software, but at initial order time only. The increased specification server will attract the same level of discount as the corresponding machine models listed below. You may also substitute IBM i for AIX to run SPSS C&DS. You may not reduce the hardware or software specification below the minimums listed below.
