This whitepaper explores the new SPARC S7 server features and then compares this offering to a similar x86 offering. The key characteristics of the SPARC S7 to be highlighted are: ? Designed for scale-out and cloud infrastructures ? SPARC S7 processor with greater core performance than the latest Intel Xeon E5 processor ? Software in Silicon which offers hardware-based features such as data acceleration and security The SPARC S7 is then compared to a similar x86 solution from three different perspectives, namely performance, risk and cost. Performance matters as business markets are driving IT to provide an environment that: ? Continuously provides real-time results. ? Processes more complex workload stacks. ? Optimizes usage of per-core software licenses. Risk matters today and into the foreseeable future, as challenges to secure systems and data are becoming more frequent and invasive from within and from outside.

In most use cases involving flash storage deployments, the business environment changes, driving a need for higher-performance storage. However, the case of Epic Systems Corporation software is the opposite—the storage requirements haven’t changed recently, but the options for addressing them have. Epic, a privately-held company founded in 1979 and based in Verona,Wisconsin, makes applications for medical groups, hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Epic software typically exhibits high frequency,random storage accesses with stringent latency requirements. IBM has been working with Epic to develop host-side and storage-side solutions to meet these requirements. Extensive testing has demonstrated that the combination of IBM® POWER8™ servers and IBM FlashSystem™ storage more than meets the performance levels Epic recommends for the backend storage supporting its software implementations—at a cost point multiple times lower than other storage alternatives.

Has your organization been dealing with storage latency and performance issues? With a population of nearly 10 million people, Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the United States. It's no surprise that with 1.5 million people taking public transportation every day to help ease some of LA County's infamous traffic, making sure passengers get where they're going is a monumental task. At the heart of it all is the organization's IT department. The LA Metro infrastructure consists of 600 servers, 500 of which are virtualized. When the city's IT team began receiving user complaints and experiencing performance issues with their Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment, they began looking for alternatives. Download the case study now and learn how replacing the city's existing storage solution helped solve a wide range of technical problems and eliminated unnecessary latency, ensuring all 1.5 million passengers got where they needed to be.

Buy-and-hold strategies can actually add costs to the datacenter, as systems age in place. Not only do hardware maintenance and software maintenance fees rise, over time – but the aging of applications also costs the organization money. Investing in a transition from POWER5 to POWER7 resulted in a return on investment (ROI) of more than 150 percent over three years.An insightful and and compelling discussion by IDC that reviews the primary reason for maintaining current systems -- Return on Investment. IDC studied IBM Power Systems sites that remained on the POWER5 platform long after its initial introduction in 2004. When comparisons to the succeeding generation of POWER7 are made, customers have found that the increase in scalability and performance of POWER7 systems, combined with a reduction in server "footprint" size and overall electrical requirements, resulted in significant reductions in ongoing costs, or opex, per 100 end users supported.

Network monitoring software packages require complex installation, ongoing maintenance and additional costs for servers and third-party applications. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) network monitoring alternatives greatly simplify implementation and maintenance, but they rely on uninterrupted Internet access to function, often require complex VPNs or firewall modifications, and typically provide limited access to historical data.
