Integrated Hardware Maintenance for non-IBM products

Storage, server and networking hardware, like people, have life spans. Like human adolescents, they need to be nurtured when they’re younger—with updates and refinements to maintain a healthy, productive life. Once these products reach midlife, their stability increases and the need for updates decreases. As the equipment ages, its performance may not be as optimal as it once was. However, with cost-effective support, it can still perform many useful functions. Tailoring maintenance to a piece of equipment’s lifecycle, in this manner, is a practical way to help extend its life and cut costs.

IBM NeXtScale System

Joe Clabby reviews the functionality and benefits of the new IBM NeXtScale System. The arrival of ultra-dense, hyper-scale designs such as IBM's NeXtScale System (NeXtScale) is changing system design dynamics in the HPC marketplace. NeXtScale is based on standard components (such as standard racks, networking, and memory). These servers can be serviced from the front. They are pretest-ed for reliability and are optimized for performance and efficiency. They are tuned to reduce energy waste. They can be pre-configured and pre-programmed to speed deployment and time to value.

A Comparison of IBM’s Flex System Environments to Traditional Blade Architectures

In this Research Report, Clabby Analytics takes a closer look at IBM's Flex System converged architecture. The new Flex System's advanced blade offering shines compared to its closest rival: traditional blade architecture. Flex System offers superior manageability, faster communications, more storage capacity (using up to eight internal solid state drives SSDs per compute node) and better storage management - as well as broader/better physical/virtual system management - than all of today's leading blade competitors.
