Enterprise x86 client Pain Points


Enterprise Workloads

Running enterprise workloads on proprietary platforms

Move off proprietary platforms like Sun SPARC and HP with Itanium to a cost efficient, industry standard platform. Take advantage of the enterprise class robustness of the IBM eX5 platform. If you are concerned with IT and company growth keeping up with IT equipment, eX5 systems offer unique pay as you grow scalability. Dont over-capitalize and spend too much. Dont under-capitalize and spend too little. Get what you want now, and grow the system as requirements dictate. The x3850 X5 and x3690 X5 are designed with high-availability enterprise workloads in mind. Hot swap components and robust mainframe inspired technologies are infused into the eX5 systems. FlexNode automatic node failover ensures better 8-socket availability than monolithic 8S designs

Enterprise x86 client Pain Points


Virtualization

Number of systems to manage

Server consolidation onto x3850 X5 and x3690 X5 with MAX5 result in fewer physical systems to manage lowering costs With FlexNode partitioning, re-deploy systems on a project-by-project or day-to-night basis with no physical change to the systems Many systems have low utilization rates, and run only one application per server (legacy) Consolidation of many-to-one allows higher utilization and better ROI, lower administration costs, less power consumption, and less rack space MAX5 gives eX5 a consolidation advantage Cost of managing many small systems, with one application increases costs Consolidation can take care of the many systems to manage pain point Virtualization allows consolidation of many-toone in effective environment

Database Workloads

Need more memory, processing power, and room to grow

eX5 systems offer memory expansion of 32 DIMMs per system with MAX5 achieve up to 32 DIMMs / socket Scale natively to 2 nodes with QPI, or scale beyond QPI constraints with MAX5 x3690 X5 gives 2-socket clients MP performance, memory, and storage without the 4-socket investment eXFlash increases DB performance by 40x at 30x lower cost MAX5 memory expansion and eXFlash SSD technology increase your systems memory and storage, delivering larger, faster databases and reducing the need for additional systems or external storage Consolidate utilizing virtualization for small to medium sized databases FlexNode partitioning and automatic failover for simplified maintenance and maximized uptime eXFlash SSD technology provides 64x greater reliability over traditional HDDs

eX5 FlexNode automatic node failover

eX5 Innovations

Automatic node failover makes eX5 multi-node systems the most reliable What is it
If one node in a multi-node system experiences a fatal error and a shutdown, the multinode system will reboot After reboot the remaining system continues to operate without the failed node

Customer value
Greater uptime: Automatic reboot brings the eX5 system back up automatically. Monolithic multi-socket systems will stay down until the fatal error is resolved. Simpler management: Easier identification of the failure
Other 8S systems Back up and running! Down until help arrives!

Key questions for clients reveal compelling reasons to act


How important is investment protection for your x86 server investments? > The x3850X5 / x3950 X5 and x3690 X5 provide an environment to protect the clients investment with scalability, memory expansion, and node partitioning to allow the client to deploy the system they need, when they need it.
Do you have memory constraints or under-utilized processors? > MAX5 allows the x3690 X5 and x3850 X5 to expand memory independently of the processor to increase the productivity of a single system Do you have physical space constraints? > clients that are running out of space with 1U and 2U rack servers can consolidate onto a smaller number of high-end systems, saving (among other things) space. Additionally, reduce the need for external storage by consolidating HDD to SSD at 43:1 Do you want a proven, reliable platform for database or virtualization? > The x3850 X5/X3950 X5 and x3690 X5 offer mainframe inspired technologies to allow for significant reliability features in an industry standard x86 server. Memory mirroring, RAID memory, redundant I/O links for example are technologies borrowed from the mainframe to increase system reliability.

IBM System x3850 X5

Flagship System x platform for leadership scalable performance and capacity Maximize Memory, Minimize Cost, Simplify Deployment
Key Features Leadership High End Scalable System Customer Benefits > Up to 3x SAP performance over previous industry 2-socket systems > 3.3x greater database performance and 3.6x more virtual machines than industry leading 2-socket x86 (Intel Xeon 5500 Series processor) systems > Scale via QPI from 4-socket, 64 DIMMs to 8-socket, 128 thread, 128 DIMM performance (192 DIMMs with MAX5)

MAX5 Memory Expansion > Scale memory independently of processors, adding 32 DIMMs of extra memory capacity and 16 extra memory channels for no compromises > 50% more virtual machines and leading database performance over competitor 4-socket systems > Lower cost, high performance configurations reaching desired memory capacity using less expensive DIMMs eXFlash for HighIOPs database performance

How to Beat HP Beat HPs 4S & 8S EX offerings with x3850 X5 plus MAX5 Memory Expansion for leadership performance Target 4S customers who need large memory capacity without additional processors for virtualization, consolidation, and database workloads Focus on minimizing total solution costs with eXFlash and reduced software licenses
2009 IBM Corporation

> 480k internal IOPs for up to 200x local database performance


over traditional spinning disks > $1.3M savings in equal IOPs external storage

Automatic Node Failover, > 6x the reliability per virtual machine over 2-socket clusters Memory ProteXion, and > Greater system uptime during failures than monolithic design Predictive Failure Analysis FlexNode Partitioning and > Purchase once, and configure as needed for project lifecycle Flexible Configurability > Reduce software license costs by expanding memory capacity with eX5 rather than purchasing more processors Where to win
Target Workloads: Virtualization, Database, and Enterprise Applications Target Industries: All Sectors & GB, particularly Finance, Industrial and Federal Target Customers: Sun Sparc, HP Itanium and HP and Dell 4- and 8-socket customers

IBM BladeCenter HX5

Scalable high end blade for high density compute and memory capacity Maximize Memory, Minimize Cost, Simplify Deployment
Key Features High End Scalable Blade Customer Benefits > Maximum compute capacity with 64 thread 4 processor blade with 32 high speed memory channels for maximum throughput > 1.7x greater performance over 2-socket EP systems while using same two-processor SW license > Save over 30% in 4-socket CPU costs compared to HP with 4socket 80D MAX5

MAX5 Memory Expansion

> Memory capacity up to 320GB in a 60mm design for over 25%


more VMs per processor compared to competition > Memory bound VMware customers can save over $10K in licensing with memory rich 2-socket configurations > Upgrade to 80 DIMM for max memory performance or to save over $4K by using smaller, less expensive DIMMs

How to Beat HP Undercut HPs 4S blades with denser, cost optimized 4S 32 DIMM HX5 or beat it with 4S 80 DIMM leadership MAX5 HX5 Stomp HP BL490C virtualization blade with over 2x the memory capacity for the same software license cost Deliver faster time to value with single scalable platform for 2 and 4 socket needs
2009 IBM Corporation

FlexNode Partitioning and Automatic Node Failover

> Get up and running up to 2x faster by qualifying a single


platform for 2- and 4-socket server needs > Partitioning of 4-socket to two 2-sockets without any physical system reconfiguration, and automatically fail over for maximum uptime

Investment protection

> Start with a 2-socket system and add capacity on demand with
scalability

> No system premium or parts on the floor to upgrade or boost


Where to win
memory > Separation of memory capacity from processors, enabling license constrained memory rich configurations

Target Workloads: Virtualization, Database, Modeling & Simulation Target Industries: Finance, Industrial, and Federal Target Customers: HP 4S BL680c G5/G6 and 2S BL490c customers
