IBM Systems

Your computing workloads are becoming more and more sophisticated and specialized. This diversity of workloads can increase complexity – complexity that can cost you money. Management costs account for up to 70 percent of typical IT budgets and 23 percent of IT projects go over budget. Today, you need systems that meet the performance demands of your workloads but also offer simple management and efficiency so you can get the most out of your IT investment. With expert integrated systems; mainframes; x86 and POWER-based servers; and disk, tape and network storage systems, IBM can offer the right combination of systems and expertise to help you tune your IT investment for the needs of your business today – and into the future.

Is your IT infrastructure smart enough for the future?

Accelerate big data and cloud with Expert Integrated Systems.

 

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 utilization 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 center 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 center network designs.

Software

IBM's comprehensive Systems Software solutions help to centralize, streamline and automate your physical and virtual infrastructure, allowing you to optimize workloads and increase your ability to deliver IT services that align with business goals. Let us show you how IBM Systems Software helps you realize 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.

Systems-related services

IBM Systems-related services offers a full range of services to help design, develop, integrate, optimize, validate and deploy comprehensive solutions that support On Demand Business.
