We’ve moved to a more interoperable world where vendor lock-in is not normal. No one “does it all” in the sense they might have in the 90s. This white paper explores a shift away from piece-parts towards more integrated offerings in where the technology moves to the background and the system is about the workload it’s matched to.
IBM's System x eX5 servers attack customers' most challenging IT problems with efficiency and flexibilityJanuary 31, 2011 10:29 am | by IBM
The System x eX5 family provides not only the performance, but also the flexibility necessary to address businesses most pressing needs: Performance and cost savings, all in one package. This white paper shows how listening to customers priorities helped the IBM System x team achieve their goal.
For years, Industry Standard Servers have benefited organizations, but those days are over. This white paper shows how IBM eX5 systems allow organizations to combine the full advantages of Intel’s Xeon processors with the latest and most advanced System x features—allowing companies to do more with fewer servers and achieve better system utilization and energy efficiency.
Pairing SAP Business Suite or SAP Business All-in-One with IBM BladeCenter servers enables organizations to achieve the performance and reliability they need for rapid and consistent access to information while also gaining the flexibility for change and the scalability for growth.
By running SAP applications on IBM System x eX5 servers equipped with Intel Xeon processor 7500 series, companies can achieve outstanding SAP performance to address current needs while gaining the scalability needed to accommodate growth

VMware & IBM paper for small and midsize companies, System x, BladeCenter, and VMware virtualzation solutions offer cost-effective options for transforming IT into a simple more powerful computing infrastructure. Look to IBM and VMware to show you how you can be distinctly competitive and profitable.
If IT and Facilities could work collaboratively, organizations can operate more efficiently and effectively while still meeting their business objectives. That's why Eaton® is partnering with organizations that develop IT management systems to create an integrated approach to energy management. This white paper describes how a joint monitoring and management solution links IT assets, the data center infrastructure and Facilities assets into a holistic perspective aligned with business processes.
Using digital control in power supplies is considerably more flexible than analog control in its ability to adapt to changes and digital control inside the power supply results in advantages to the system application such as improved efficiency, fewer external components and reduced overall cost.
Virtualization can deliver dramatic benefits for data centers, but it can also stress the underlying support infrastructure. Power and cooling systems—which may have been quite sufficient for pre-virtualization needs—could easily become inadequate when data center performance patterns are radically altered. This paper describes some of power challenges related to virtualization—and the readily available technologies to address them.
Power distribution units (PDUs) are vital to the management of power to IT arrays and have evolved from a simple panel of switches and outlets to designs that can now be considered "intelligent" through the inclusion of internal processing capabilities.
