Achieve new data center economics with IBM Enterprise Linux

You’re invited to lower your monthly costs by up to 50%1.

1 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.

The potential savings that can be achieved by consolidating Linux workloads on IBM® Enterprise Linux Servers are far too significant to be ignored.

The benefits of a scalable, robust platform allow organizations to grow both horizontally and vertically on the back of expanded IT capabilities to accommodate future requirements.

IBM Linux servers enable such significant savings through single-server simplicity, the ability to save more on software licenses, management, floor space and energy costs. Organizations like yours can enjoy a superior standard of virtual server provisioning, monitoring and workload management.
