Enterprise systems offerings from IBM include:

IBM Enterprise Power Systems

Power Systems are the ultimate servers for combining enterprise transaction processing applications with compute intensive workloads like analytics. POWER processor performance and the data-optimised design of POWER architecture ensures that Power Systems can manage both structured and unstructured data from multiple sources in real time. This unique capability makes Power Systems ideal for running big data, database and transactions together on a single scalable system.

IBM zEnterprise System

IBM zEnterprise System is ideally suited for enterprises with multiple lines of business that run large-scale transaction processing applications that generate vast quantities of structured data. They are designed for centrally managing and securing the most critical IT services of an enterprise. Compared to x86 servers, they deliver superior economics through large-scale consolidation and enterprise private clouds with capability for more than 100,000 virtual machines in a single system.

  • IBM System Storage

    IBM System Storage offers enterprise Storage for System z and enterprise Storage for Power Systems to provide unique capabilities to improve performance, availability, and scalability. Virtually every enterprise struggles to manage the exponential growth of data and the increasing complexity of its IT environment. IBM enterprise storage solutions are designed to efficiently and securely store vast amounts of data while providing consistent high performance and continuous access to information.

  • Financing for enterprise systems

    IBM Global Financing is the best option to help you affordably meet your hardware financing needs and stay competitive. Specifically, IBM can help credit-qualified clients to conserve cash to use for other strategic needs and investments and maximise cash flow and accelerate their project's cash flow break-even point with payment terms that align costs with anticipated benefits. With flexible financing IBM customers can add capacity or upgrade, often at little or no increase in monthly payments, lower TCO with a Fair Market Value lease.

  • Global Technology Services (GTS) (US)

    Matching enterprise systems with the right expertise, experience, tools and methodologies is essential for helping IBM clients design, deploy and manage their mission critical IT infrastructure securely, efficiently, and reliably. With more than 80,000 skilled delivery service specialists worldwide, GTS is the world's largest system integrator and manager of IT infrastructure. With GTS, clients gain the bench-strength they need to optimise, virtualise and enable the cloud, build, manage and control the server environment and protect against risk with end-to-end solutions.
