IBM i for Midsize Businesses: Minimizing Costs and Risks for Midsize Businesses

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Sep 27, 2013
The challenges faced by midsize businesses remain daunting. An uncertain economic outlook, slow market growth and cost pressures continue to affect most industries. Yet, in most geographies, IT spending by midsize businesses is increasing. This report deals with this cost/benefit equation. Specifically, it compares the IBM i 7.1 operating system deployed on Power Systems with two alternatives: use of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008, and use of x86 Linux with Oracle Database 11g, both deployed on Intel-based servers.

IBM PowerVM Virtualization Technology on IBM POWER7 Systems

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Oct 01, 2013
This technical white paper presents benchmark results showing greater VM consolidation ratios than demonstrated in previous benchmarks and demonstrating the extent of the performance lead that PowerVM virtualization technologies deliver over x86-based add-on virtualization products. The tests, running two workload benchmarks of different consolidation ratios on POWER7 processor-based and comparable Intel-based systems, demonstrate the exceptional performance and scalability of PowerVM virtualization technologies compared to VMware vSphere1 on an x86-based platform.

Making the Smart Choice vs x86 platforms

Published By: IBM APAC     Published Date: May 14, 2019
The perceived x86 benefits of lower acquisition cost and standardizing on are often made at the expense of performance, reliability, scalability and manageability. Moreover, many are driven by the impression that x86-based systems will solve all their computing challenges—when often that is not the case. This eBook looks at companies that chose to invest in IBM® Power Systems™ rather than continuing to run on or migrate to x86-based systems — and why.

Inquiry Spotlight: Server Virtualization, Q3 2008

Published By: NetApp     Published Date: Apr 21, 2009
As organizations continue to deploy server virtualization, questions have shifted from "if" to "how." Out of all 220 inquiries Forrester's IT infrastructure and operations team answered on data centers, servers, and virtual appliances in 2008 to date, 72 were specifically in regard to server virtualization. These IT professionals' most common inquiries addressed vendor comparison, optimum physical to virtual consolidation ratios, expected ROI, and situation-specific concerns regarding the possible benefits that virtual servers could provide. These inquiries came from organizations in the early stages of implementing server virtualization — if you are considering or are in the process of implementing, you too should be asking these questions.

Fastest Speed, Highest Security: The Co-engineering of Oracle's New M8 Systems

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: Oct 20, 2017
Oracle has just announced a new microprocessor, and the servers and engineered system that are powered by it. The SPARC M8 processor fits in the palm of your hand, but it contains the result of years of co-engineering of hardware and software together to run enterprise applications with unprecedented speed and security. The SPARC M8 chip contains 32 of today’s most powerful cores for running Oracle Database and Java applications. Benchmarking data shows that the performance of these cores reaches twice the performance of Intel’s x86 cores. This is the result of exhaustive work on designing smart execution units and threading architecture, and on balancing metrics such as core count, memory and IO bandwidth. It also required millions of hours in testing chip design and operating system software on real workloads for database and Java. Having faster cores means increasing application capability while keeping the core count and software investment under control. In other words, a boost
