The IBM PureFlex System TCO Analysis Tool was developed independently by leading ROI developer Alinean, Inc. This Analysis tool compares the total cost of ownership for the IBM PureFlex Solution versus a traditional dedicated or virtualized IT infrastructure by collecting information about the current computing needs and then projects the TCO for the two alternatives.
To accomplish this mission, you need an infrastructure platform that can be highly optimized for today’s and tomorrow’s virtualized workloads to provide operational simplicity that allows you to move at the speed of business.
Unfortunately, a traditional infrastructure won’t get you there. A siloed environment requires too many tools and manual processes, which creates unnecessary complexity. That complexity, in turn, causes downtime, slows service delivery, and drains your IT staff productivity.
Integrated computing platforms enable IT to focus on more valuable tasks that will speed time-to-market and improve application deployment and availability to better support the business.

So far, most data centers have virtualized their least-critical workloads as a matter of basic cost containment. Virtualizing mission-critical applications is still forthcoming for the majority,though, largely due to infrastructural concerns. Complicating matters is the shift in IT purchasing decisions from IT to business management.
Integrated Computing Platforms (ICPs), private cloud computing, and public cloud services all leverage virtualization to achieve a number of IT and business goals, including increased ROI, reduced OpEx, and business process improvement. Now more than ever, it makes sense to explore the benefits of ICPs.

Servers with the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family in a four-CPU configuration can deliver up to twice the processing performance, three times the memory capacity, and four times the I/O bandwidth of previous models. Together with their excellent transaction processing performance, these servers provide a high level of availability essential to enterprise systems via advanced RAS functions that guarantee the integrity of important data while also reducing costs and the frequency of server downtime.

Chuck Dubuque - Product Marketing Manager, Red Hat Server and desktop virtualization technologies, which bring cost and agility advantages to enterprise IT, have become mainstream in most datacenters. However, after nearly 10 years, virtualized servers still only represent about 30 percent of x86 production workloads due to technology limitations and the expense of proprietary virtualization platforms. In this session, Chuck Dubuque will cover:
* The benefits of datacenter virtualization
* Technologies in the open source community that will enable pervasive virtualization
* The move to the cloud
* The particular advantages of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and the Red Hat subscription model

In today’s hyperconnected world—with its multiple mobile devices, ubiquitous Internet access and pervasive social media platforms—people expect immediate access to information and services. These expectations are increasingly felt in corporate IT departments, where business units demand instant applications and fast services.
Virtualization and cloud computing can help corporate IT meet these demands by bringing more flexibility and agility to the environment. But the ultimate solution is to transform the way IT is delivered. Indeed, many enterprises have already started on the journey toward the IT as a service (ITaaS) model.
