Achieving effective and efficient high availability protection for larger IBM i environments requires careful thought and clear understanding of the technology options. This white paper describes what you need to know in order to make an informed decision about IBM i high availability strategies so that your business requirements for Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) are not compromised
The Cisco UCS solution provides all management and configuration services at the centrally located Fabric Interconnects, so you can manage large-scale deployments from a single location. This method lets you consolidate hardware and streamline management. The IBM Flex System solution uses a distributed management model with chassis-level control. This method adds to the complexity to the hardware configuration, which can increase management needs.

For the past several years IBM has
been divesting its hardware business.
At the same time, Oracle has continued
to invest in IT infrastructure and cloud
innovation. Oracle SPARC servers offer
you greater performance and efficiency
compared to IBM Power systems, with
additional security and lower costs, along
with the flexibility to run your applications
on-premises or in the Oracle Cloud.

According to industry analyst IDC, the mean cost of an
hour of downtime can range from USD 224,952 to
USD 1,659,428, depending on the size of your organization.1
And each instance of downtime increases your total cost of
ownership (TCO) and eats away at your IT budget.

Increased processing needs means increased energy costs. In fact, power costs can often exceed hardware costs. Read this white paper and see how the pairing of new IBM System x and BladeCenter servers with the new Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series can reduce costs and improve performance.
Intel faces a familiar challenge: do more with less. With compute capacity growing exponentially and chip size expectation shrinking, the new 5500 series delivers on both fronts. This white paper delivers test results that show increased performance and speed along with greater efficiency.
Even with increased start-up costs, higher-end processors can offer a lower TCO thanks to better performance. This white paper shows detailed comparisons between higher- and lower-end servers with surprising results—including a 42% lower TCO and 87% faster performance for the higher-end processor.
Live migration is essential for a dynamic data center environment. But until now, it's been impossible between different generations of processors. Intel IT and End User Platform Integration have done so successfully with Intel® Virtualization Technology FlexMigration. This white paper explains how.
The five-minute Maintenance & Technology Service Self-Assessment from IBM can help you start addressing the shortfalls in your hardware, software and managed support areas. You'll learn how to create plans for potential issues, plus identify next steps to improve your support.
