The services team is now booking for 2010. Here is an example of a recent engagement.
Sparkplugs – Our teams in action!
Optimizing Current Unix IT Systems
The team assisted a customer by illustrating how IBM Power 6 virtualization technology can be leveraged to optimize a Unix IT systems environment and reduce operating expense. We developed three solution groups based on the application’s utilizations, existing server performance metrics, and high availability requirements.
By extending capacity of current System p servers and by utilizing virtualization techniques, the client was able to reduce their annual spend on their current servers by more than 75%, saving nearly $3M over five years!
This customer recognized their electrical power constraints and realized that by migrating to the new IBM solution they can reduce their power consumption by more than 90%.
