IBM PureFlex System

Highlights

Today’s marketplace is changing. Customers, employees and partners demand access to data and applications on their terms. Users want full service from mobile devices. Social networking is driving business priorities. You have to manage and analyze huge amounts of data. Cloud technology can support the flexibility and performance needed to address mobile, social and big data demands. But you have to implement a cloud infrastructure efficiently. You need simplified management and application platforms and infrastructure that meet your needs both in functionality and in ongoing cost.

IBM® PureFlex™ System is a complete, flexible cloud infrastructure system with integrated expertise. The system integrates and optimizes all compute, storage and networking resources to deliver infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) out of the box. These fully integrated, optimized solutions can be configured for your specific business need and may be complemented by a package of support services. These purchased services include flexible choices for warranty service upgrades (WSU), and microcode analysis to ensure your PureFlex deployment maintains the latest levels of software and firmware.

Systems

IBM offers a broad systems and storage portfolio combined with decades of experience solving real business problems. With x86, POWER and mainframe systems, disk, tape and network storage systems, IBM can offer the right combination of systems to meet the challenges of your business.

Storage

Storage efficiency is more vital than ever. Your disk utilisation rate may be as low as 20% — while the amount of data you are required to store is exploding. IBM Storage can help.

Networking

The smarter data centre with improved economics of IT can be achieved by connecting servers and storage with a high-speed and intelligent network fabric that is smarter, faster, greener, open and easy to manage. IBM takes an open, standards-based approach to implement the latest advances in today’s flat, converged data centre network designs.

Software

IBM's comprehensive Systems Software solutions help to centralise, streamline and automate your physical and virtual infrastructure, allowing you to optimise workloads and increase your ability to deliver IT services that align with business goals. Let us show you how IBM Systems Software helps you realise the value of IBM smarter computing, by allowing a more effective use of the advanced features in IBM hardware and operating systems.

Integrated solutions

The reality is that you need an IT infrastructure designed for data, tuned to the task and managed in the cloud. If your IT staff spends all of their time managing IT, they won’t be working with you to drive innovation. You need your infrastructure to help you in the marketplace, to help you innovate, to help you be more competitive, to help you succeed.
