Softchoice Provides Servers Built for Tomorrow

The value that IBM Power Systems delivers may be simple enough – do more with less.

But doing more with less is hardly a simple proposition, especially with so many IT environments geared to do more with more.

IBM Power Systems are configured to tackle anything but simple – including only the most complex, high-demanding workloads and applications born from cloud, big data, and mobile environments.

  • Virtualization-embedded servers that deliver superior cloud economics
  • Designed for big data and other mission-critical applications
  • Built through an open ecosystem and optimized for intensive data processing
  • Linux architecture supports more reliable and affordable application performance

Softchoice IBM Power Assessment Helps Reduce Software Costs

To help you understand how much your IBM Power Systems investment will cost, our team takes you through a comprehensive IBM Power Systems assessment.

This assessment covers current applications that you are running, which applications you are considering running on Power, and your current licensing setup.

With the information we gain from our assessment, we can run a comparison between Power and other systems in the marketplace. We look at a multitude of factors that could contribute to your software savings so you can make the best decision possible.

IBM Power Systems has proven to improve efficiencies for application performance:

  • Power users have experienced a 70% increase in batch processing speed and efficiency
  • Up to 60% more capacity has been attainable through compression
  • Users have also experienced a 30% reduction in processing times
  • They’ve also gained 6x faster application performance

Depending on how many applications you support, IBM Power Systems keep you at the cores you need.

Other servers drive up the price for licenses because they require a full investment in 24 cores, even when most of those 24 cores aren’t used. That’s not the case with IBM Power Systems. Licensing is based on the number of cores you need to use. No more, no less.

IBM Power Systems are designed to work on less cores, giving you optimal application performance to cut down on your licensing costs and commitments.
