Softchoice Provided Servers Built for Tomorrow
The value that IBM Power Systems delivers may be simple enough – do more with less.
But doing more with less is hardly a simple proposition, especially with so many IT environments geared to do more with more.
IBM Power Systems are configured to tackle anything but simple – including only the most complex, high-demanding workloads and applications born from cloud, big data, and mobile environments.
Virtualization-embedded servers that deliver superior cloud economics
Designed for big data and other mission-critical applications
Built through an open ecosystem and optimized for intensive data processing
Linux architecture supports more reliable and affordable application performance
To help you understand how much your IBM Power Systems investment will cost, our team takes you through a comprehensive IBM Power Systems assessment.
This assessment covers current applications that you are running, which applications you are considering running on Power, and your current licensing setup.
With the information we gain from our assessment, we can run a comparison between Power and other systems in the marketplace. We look at a multitude of factors that could contribute to your software savings so you can make the best decision possible.
IBM Power Systems has proven to improve efficiencies for application performance:
Power users have experienced a 70% increase in batch processing speed and efficiency
Up to 60% more capacity has been attainable through compression
Users have also experienced a 30% reduction in processing times
They’ve also gained 6x faster application performance
Depending on how many applications you support, IBM Power Systems keep you at the cores you need.
Other servers drive up the price for licenses because they require a full investment in 24 cores, even when most of those 24 cores aren’t used. That’s not the case with IBM Power Systems. Licensing is based on the number of cores you need to use. No more, no less.
Process Data in Seconds with Softchoice and IBM Flash Storage
What’s the difference between processing your data in 10 minutes versus 10 seconds?
It could mean the difference for closing a deal. It could mean the difference to having the key information you need to create a business case. It could mean the difference for making a critical decision. It could mean everything.
IBM Flash Storage Doesn’t Hold Anything Back
When you need fast data at your fingertips, flash can help increase the utilization of your desktop servers and database applications. Compared to traditional disk storage, the memory and ram of flash disk moves at the speed of thought. You’ll be able to gain 6.7x more capacity in a single rack and 19x more cost-efficiency in dollars per IOPS.
Gain better performing applications to run deeper analytics
Accelerate business decision-making across multiple application platforms, including transactional and analytical databases
Improve bandwidth and input/output operations per second (IOPS) without compromising latency
Reduce business interruptions without sacrificing performance or usable capacity
Softchoice can show the best way to leverage IBM Flash so you can maximize the full capability of your database applications. Instead of hiring a DBA to fix your disk problem or investing in new systems and applications, you can reach your storage performance benchmarks with a more cost-efficient and proven approach.
Depending on how you currently use your data, the Softchoice Flash team will give you a rundown of how flash can help you achieve additional storage optimization.
By sending us your current data metrics (including what you’re using your data for and where you need to see improvements), we’ll run a report that outlines you how your database will perform on IBM Flash.
Our assessment doesn’t stop at the sales stage.
Choosing the right on-premise infrastructure is critical as you transition to SAP HANA. Your organization will need the performance and reliability to meet the data demands of this new architecture and the flexibility to grow as you go.
