What sets the zEnterprise environment apart
3j;VWW7cVjR_U;`Y_6V]]d•Illustrations by Stephanie Dalton

hen IBM announced the zEnterprise* System in 2010, it was dubbed “A New Dimension in Computing.” This description was intended to emphasize new and nontraditional capabilities in three important areas, illustrated on page 26. These are:

Next Generation System z* Processors The zEnterprise System consists of the IBM zEnterprise 196 (z196) and IBM zEnterprise 114 (z114) next-generation processors. They provide increased performance, capacity, resiliency and new technologies within the same physical and environmental footprints as their predecessors. IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter* Extension (zBX) This infrastructure enables the hosting of IBM System x* and POWER7* blades, with integrated networking and management to complement zEnterprise capabilities, thus forming a heterogeneous computing system capable of hosting multiplatform, multitier workloads on a single logically integrated platform. zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager (zManager) zManager is an integrated management appliance providing advanced hardware and virtualization management functions. It’s delivered as zEnterprise System firmware to provide integrated, uniform management for heterogeneous computing configurations with a single point of operational control. The Rationale The complexities of managing distributed heterogeneous infrastructures have become significant factors in overall IT cost, flexibility and responsiveness. Managing these components within isolated administrative silos results in a lack of operational insight, resiliency and resource optimization. It is often difficult to see the relationships between the IT resources used in the service of business functions. This highlights the need for better infrastructure integration and optimization, and for management tools that make it easier to align IT resources with business service goals. This level of integration also paves the way for more resilient, dynamic, flexible and optimized infrastructures.

zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension
  Selected IBM POWER7 blades and IBM System x blades for AIX, Linux and Windows applications   High performance optimizers and appliances to accelerate time to insight and reduce cost   Dedicated high-performance private network
