IBM PureFlex System and IBM Flex System

Extraordinary compute power. Outstanding storage capability.
Ultimate networking flexibility. Expert integrated or build-to-order.

IBM PureFlex System. Expert integrated systems changes the economics of IT Infrastructure. Manufacturing Company running SAP. Client Infrastructure 5y TCO: $3,106,385. Labor $1,074,775. Software $959,985. Facilities $172,190. Hardware $899,435. PureFlex infrastructure TCO Savings over 5y: $1,304,186. 41% savings. 54% Labor savings -$588,294. 73% Facilities savings -$126,170. 61% Software savings -$589,524. Hardware savings -$243. Software $370,416. Facilities $46,020. Hardware $899,192. Labor $486,526. Assumption: 80 sockets of older x86 technology comprised of 72 databases and 86 application server cores running Windows, VMware, SQL servers and 2 HP 28TB storage were consolidated into 16 sockets and 1 Storwize v7000 with 15TB. Deversified Company running SAP. Client Infrastructure 5y TCO: $2,044,149. Labor $812,442. Software $604,485. Facilities $86,880. Hardware $540,342.

All examples are based on ITG (third party) interviews that provided the specific customer circumstances, the destination architetures, and the projected savings. Saving shown are calculated based on the IBM PureFlex System Consolidation Tool leveraging third-party Alinean methodology. Operational expense savings from consolidating systems include hardware maintenance, software license and facilities savings. Specific client environments and results may vary.
