Many businesses, large and small, are facing an IT conundrum – how to manage a massive demand for new services on a flat or declining budget. IBM System z delivers a unique hybrid computing model that allows data centers to optimise workload deployment on best fit technologies with a common management infrastructure while driving down overall costs. This model integrates data serving and analytics for actionable insight and enables fast and flexible delivery of new services to drive innovation.
zEnterprise : An ideal platform for enterprise cloud.
Organisations are turning to cloud computing as a way to deliver new services quickly with a flexible, responsive IT infrastructure. IBM Executives Steve Mills and Kershaw Mehta describe how the IBM zEnterprise System is an ideal platform for enterprise cloud. The zEnterprise platform’s scalable, shared-everything design coupled with its unique ability to manage a heterogeneous infrastructure give organisations the ability to deploy a robust cloud solution for 50 – 70% less than a typical x86 scale-out architecture. Find out why the zEnterprise is being called a “Cloud in a box."
Hybrid Computing with zEnterprise
Following on the heels of the zEnterprise announcement last year, IBM is unveiling a new entry-level, hybrid-enabled mainframe server with increased flexibility and performance in a lower-cost package to allow mid-sized organisations to improve the deployment and management of multi-tier workloads.
