2Cost and Performance
4Linux and Windows Blade Support
The IBM zEnterprise 114 is designed to deliver Smarter Computing capabilities. On a smarter planet, according to IBM, nearly everything computes. Things no one would recognize as computers—home appliances, cars, roads, clothes, even rivers and cornfields—will have built-in intelligence. Smarter Computing systems are designed for data, tuned to the task and managed in the cloud, IBM says.
7Total Cost of Ownership
Enterprises can consolidate workloads from 40 x86 processors running Oracle software on to a new z114 with three processors running Linux. In addition, over a three-year period, total costs for hardware, software and support on the new z114 as compared with consolidated servers can be up to 80 percent less, with similar savings on floor space and energy.
8Support for Specialty Engines
The z114 can be supported by specialty engines: the System z Application Assist Processor, System z Integrated Information Processor and Integrated Facility for Linux. Theyre designed to integrate new Java, XML and Linux applications and technologies with existing workloads, as well to optimize system resources and reduce costs on the mainframe.
9New Operating System
IBM Global Financing offers attractive financing options for existing IBM clients who want to upgrade to a z114 as well as clients currently using select Hewlett-Packard P and Oracle servers. IBM is also offering 0 percent financing for 12 months on any IBM software, including IBM middleware, for the z114 such as Tivoli, WebSphere, Rational, Lotus and Analytics products.
