The Benefits of the Enterprise Linux Server

The IBM Enterprise Linux Server offers an enterprise grade Linux infrastructure with the power and flexibility to provide datacenter simplicity, trusted operations and unrivaled economics.

    Bottom line: The Enterprise Linux Server provides operational simplicity through its advanced virtualization 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 virtualization and server technologies and proven security and availability leadership.
