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.Unix and x86 Infrasctructure. 180 Application server licenses. 140 Database licenses.Pureflex consolidation. 140 Application server licenses. 32 Database licenses. Cost benefit over 3 years. $3.8 million software license reduction. Eighteen 18 UNIX servers comprising 140 database and 180 application serving nodes with HP/UX and ORACLE databases supporting SAP application were consolidated to an IBM PureFlex System with a mix of POWER7 and x86 compute nodes. The predicted savings are more than 3.8M$ over a three-year period. 18 Unix servers: 128TB. 1 PureFlex system: 86TB. $2.5 million hardware savings. Eighteen UNIX servers comprising 140 database and 180 application serving nodes with 2 storage systems were consolidated to 2 PureFlex Systems with a mix of POWER7 and x86 compute nodes and 2 Storwize V7000 systems. The predicted savings are 2.5M$ over a three-year period. 200 servers. 22 storage. 2 PureFlex. 2 Storwize. Total Full Time Equivalent cost reduction: $2 million. 58% reduction. More than 30 IBM and competitive Unix Servers, 200 Intel processor-based servers and 22 storage subsystems were consolidated to 2 PureFlex Systems with 26 compute nodes and 2 Storwize systems. The predicted savings are $2M. Source: ITG paper "Value Proposition for IBM PureFlex System. Case for IBM Pureflex System for Cloud-Enabled SAP Enterprise Environments" developed with funding by IBM. 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.
