PureApplication™ System is a cloud application platform that can dramatically accelerate time to value and automate deployment and life cycle management for a broad range of applications.
Application owners: Deploy new applications faster
Through the deep levels of integration across hardware and middleware, and the use of patterns, new applications can be deployed in minutes or hours versus weeks or months. Provisioning, scaling, security, high availability and other application attributes and activities are automatically managed across applications and system resources based on policies that can easily be assigned, adjusted, and prioritized.
Enterprise architects: Transform IT with cloud and streamline through consolidation
PureApplication System delivers a cloud application platform out of the box. This can transform how your IT organization creates and runs applications with consolidation, driving efficiency across processes, breaking down traditional IT silos, and lowering the center of gravity. In fact, PureApplication System can reduce labor costs by up to 75% compared to traditional IT models.1

1 Do It yourself used 9 blades (144 cores). IBM PureApplication System used 3 nodes (96 cores). Each system has the capacity to run 72 workloads where each workload can sustain a peak throughput of 1720 page elements per second. The labor savings and assumptions herein are estimates based on a labor model that uses data obtained on the percentage of time customers spend on certain IT lifecycle tasks. It is not a benchmark. As such, actual customer results will vary based on customer applications, differences in stack deployed and other systems variations as well as actual configuration, applications, specific queries and other variables in a production environment.2
