IBM Server Virtualization Overview

Virtualization lets your company save time, money, energy, and even data center floor space. Moving multiple virtual servers onto a lesser number of physical servers is at the heart of virtualization efforts, and it maximizes your utilization rates. The traditional design of assigning one server for one application is not only inefficient, it also provides less stability, reliability and performance than what a virtualized server environment can do. IBM server virtualization solutions let you knock down the number of physical servers you need, all while making management and maintenance much more streamlined and automated. In the end, you’re left with a much more reliable and dynamic infrastructure design.

IBM server virtualization lets you consolidate servers and do so with a high degree of confidence. IBM has a number of important server virtualization technologies that run the gamete from System x to Power Systems to System z mainframe solutions. In addition to those servers, IBM also provides the tools and software that you need to make management of your virtualized environment something that you can handle.

Take a look at the breadth of IBM virtualization tools and offerings:

  • Servers. On the server level, you can turn to IBM Power Systems, System x, System z, and BladeCenter solutions.
  • Systems management solutions. IBM’s Tivoli products, including Tivoli Monitoring and Tivoli Provisioning Manager offer all sorts of virtualization management tools, as does IBM Systems Director.
  • Design and implementation. IBM offers everything from relocation services to server optimization services to server product services. Not only can IBM provide your solutions, they can figure out which ones are best for you and keep them up and running.
  • Support services. Virtual client solutions, hardware management solutions, software support and managed tech support are all options in the IBM virtualization portfolio.

If you want to better utilize your servers, reduce your data center floor requirements, drop energy requirements and cooling needs for the data center, conserve capital, and increase reliability and keep pace with changing technologies and with increased user service level demands, virtualization is key. IBM is one of the best ways to get a handle on your virtualization needs and meet them with flying colors.
