The facts that really matter
Thinking about migrating to System z? You're in good company.
Demand for IT services is exploding, while IT professionals are faced with the realities of flat IT budgets, server sprawl, power and cooling constraints, as well as the need to "Go Green."
Since the start of 2010, more than 250 companies around the world have migrated workloads (including Oracle® workloads) to System z®. Why?
- Up to 50% savings on applicable IT costs
- Delivers up to 99.999% availability and uptime
- Top-rated EAL5 security classification
- Proven mixed-workload management
- Industry leading virtualization and up to 100% utilization
And these benefits are not limited to large organizations. Consider the new zEnterprise 114 server at a starting price of under $75,000. It is projected that clients can consolidate workloads from 40 x86 processors running Oracle software onto a new z114 with just three processors running Linux.

IT COST SAVINGS reflect overall reductions in software and/or hardware maintenance charges and reduced costs of system and workload management over a period of 3-5 years, when consolidating workloads from other systems to a virtualized Linux environment on System z.
AVAILABILITY percentage is based on System z servers in a Parallel Sysplex environment, assuming application data.sharing across multiple servers. Actual environmental costs and performance characteristics will vary depending on individual client configurations and conditions. Contact IBM to see what we can do for you. Current as of 7/7/2011.
