Built on the latest six-core Intel Xeon processor 5600 series, IBM System x3650 M3 two-socket servers offer a highly available, growth-flexible and virtualization-capable hardware platform that can support the demanding workloads of an SAP implementation, even in a constrained data center.
Whether you plan to integrate new SAP products into your infrastructure or are preparing for an upgrade, the IBM Systems solution with SAP Discovery system can help you thoroughly evaluate SAP applications - and validate their benefits.
This Intel paper analyzes the effects of various factors on the utilization of the primary server resources: compute, memory and I/O. The analysis shows that 4-socket servers, which provide greater headroom than 2-socket servers, may be preferable in a number of situations.
Read how IBM and SAP can help work with you to select the products, solutions and services best suited to your business, with the efficiency, flexibility and insight you look for when making IT investment decisions.
If you’re looking for ways to create a dynamic infrastructure, look no further. This brochure shows how IBM System x and BladeCenter servers help to deliver an infrastructure that reduces operating costs, manages present and future risk, and improves services.
High-end workloads drive ever-increasing and ever-changing constraints on innovation. But still, IBM eX5 delivers. Read this white paper to see how IBM eX5 helps you get the greatest value for your organization today and in the future.
The need for autonomous wireless sensors is exploding and new techniques to power these devices is required. Using the free ambient energy surrounding the device is an excellent way to create "Zero Power" sensors. Now both the communications and power links are wireless. New solid state energy storage devices have been introduced that store this ambient energy and last the life of the sensor.
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.
