Introducing the zEnterprise 114
IBM System z brings the value of “hybrid” computing technology to organisations of all sizes.
Twelve months ago, IBM introduced a new paradigm for enterprise computing with the launch of the zEnterprise. The most significant new systems architecture for nearly 20 years, this provocative new idea extended the unique capabilities of the mainframe to workloads running on IBM x86 and UNIX systems, expanding the mainframe's reach and allowing organisations to optimise workloads, deploy enterprise clouds and take action based on real-time analytics and big data.
And now we're extending those enterprise capabilities to smaller organisations with the launch of the zEnterprise 114 – a new entry point for hybrid computing. By collapsing infrastructures and implementing private clouds with virtual servers on the new zEnterprise, organisations can reduce operational costs by as much as 50 percent when compared to a traditional distributed infrastructure.
Find out what zEnterprise technology could mean for you by viewing the videos below.
Hear about the key announcements for the 2011 IBM zEnterprise launch including: the zEnterprise 114, Linux support for select IBM System x blades, and Unified Resource Manager APIs and key enhancements to the z196.
