considerable time and effort, meaning that our investment in Flex System will
translate into lower cost per client."
The Flex System goes beyond competitor's blade configurations and provides
the building-block elements for IBM PureSystems. IBM Flex Systems are
built-to-order offerings for clients who want to custom build and tune
configurations to their specific requirements. This allows them to select the
specific compute, systems networking and optional storage and management required
to support their specific workloads.
The IBM PureSystems family offers clients an alternative to current enterprise
computing models, where multiple and disparate systems require significant
resources to set up and maintain.
The true value of PureSystems is a portfolio of integrated and pre-tuned
platforms. It enables organizations to efficiently create
and manage an infrastructure. PureApplication System helps organizations reduce
the cost and complexity of rapidly deploying and managing applications.
PureData System is tuned for cloud computing and can consolidate more than 100
databases on a single system. In addition to the common web application
patterns supported by PureApplication System, the combination of both PureData
and PureApplication Systems can be used for end to end transaction workloads.
Since the introduction of PureSystems in April of 2012, more than 4000 systems
have been shipped to clients in more than 90 countries around the world.
