Power Systems is at the forefront of delivering solutions to gain faster insights from analyzing both structured information and unstructured big data including video, images and content from sensors, social and mobile devices. To draw insights and make better decisions, businesses need the secure, flexible and open platform of Power Systems plus solutions and software that supports continuous data load, runs multiple concurrent queries, delivers analytics in real-time and contains a massive IO bandwidth
The IBM Systems Director Express, Standard, and Enterprise Editions for Power servers each provide an integrated set of tools to help IT organizations address concerns associated with managing both physical and virtual server infrastructures Reducing time required to monitor and repair systems for higher availability, deploy and optimize systems for increased efficiency, and to plan and document infrastructure to better understand current capabilities and future capacity need.
IT staffs today have more flexibility in deploying new and expanded business workloads due to proven technologies like virtualization. However, virtualization alone, without effective systems management tools and processes can increase the workload on an already-overburdened IT staff, inhibiting their ability to deliver innovative services and drive business growth. To address todays challenges and tomorrows opportunities, businesses need to ensure high availability, security, and quality of existing services, while meeting customer expectations for new services that are delivered in the shortest possible time.
