Integrated Services Management, or ISM, is a major evolutionary force guiding management technology and practice progress in enterprises today. The implications of ISM are broad, but the essence of the initiative is a re-thinking of how IT delivers value to the organization it serves, and a re-framing of all IT contributions around the concept of services.
IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus is a "manager of managers" designed to collect and correlate events and provide a holistic "single pane of glass" view into the health and performance of the entire business IT and network infrastructure, with its increasingly instrumented devices.
The term virtualization refers to the creation of virtual machines, virtual networks, and virtual disks (logical images of physical resources) that can execute work and then be returned to a shared resource pool. Cloud computing makes use of virtualization but cloud computing also focuses on allowing computing to be delivered as a service.
This technical white paper presents benchmark results showing greater VM consolidation ratios than demonstrated in previous benchmarks and demonstrating the extent of the performance lead that PowerVM virtualization technologies deliver over x86-based add-on virtualization products. The tests, running two workload benchmarks of different consolidation ratios on POWER7 processor-based and comparable Intel-based systems, demonstrate the exceptional performance and scalability of PowerVM virtualization technologies compared to VMware vSphere1 on an x86-based platform.
IBM IT service management solutions help control costs, enhance performance and increase security in the virtual environment, with software for IT provisioning, IT monitoring, virtual storage, IT security, usage and accounting, software license management and more.
Virtualization has moved to the forefront of many organizationsí IT agendas, because it reduces both the number of physical servers required and the associated costs. This independent study by the International Technology group found IBM PowerVM more cost-competitive over time, compared to VMware, in terms of IT costs and the costs of downtime.
Consolidating data center servers through virtualization is integral to successful IT systems design. Read the white paper and see how IBM PowerVM on POWER7 offers higher ratios of server virtualization than VMware on comparable Intel x86 platforms. This enables superior performance, greater operational savings and improved efficiency.
