The Benefits of the Enterprise Linux Server

The IBM Enterprise Linux Server is designed to provide data centre simplicity, trusted operations and unrivaled economics by providing unrivaled power, performance and flexibility in one efficient and economical server.

  • - Data centre Simplicity

    The more servers you have, the harder it is to manage your IT environment, identify problems and ensure compliance. That’s why we designed the IBM Enterprise Linux Server to pack more workloads into a single server, minimising complexity.

    Bottom line: The Enterprise Linux Server provides operational simplicity through its advanced virtualisation technology, automation features and highly-scalable server capacities.

  • - Trusted Operations

    Trust and dependability are the foundation of any successful enterprise. To succeed you need an IT infrastructure this is available, secure, and flexible enough to meet your changing needs.

    Bottom line: The Enterprise Linux Server provides trust through unique leading integrated virtualisation and server technologies and proven security and availability leadership.

  • - Unrivaled Economics

    The hidden costs of IT complexity are crippling the ability of IT organisations to innovate and drive new applications and services - 70% of today’s IT budgets go to maintaining day-to-day operations.

    Bottom line: The IBM Enterprise Linux Server’s unique simple design can dramatically reduce overall IT costs compared to distributed IT environments and public cloud providers.

The IBM Enterprise Linux Server can master IT complexity by doing more for less, saving you time, energy and money, allowing you to focus on what matters most for your business.
