IBM Power Systems Virtual Server helped us cut down on the costs of our data center by eliminating the use of physical servers. We have lowered our expenses by lowering costs for environmental control. It has also eliminated the need for automated tape libraries and the inherent issues that come with ATLs and physical storage media by utilizing the virtual servers' Flash-based storage. Cloud flash-based storage and the HA options have drastically improved the efficiency of system backups and restore, allowing for an absolute minimum down time for end-users running 24/7 mission-critical applications

IBM's Power System is a high-performance computing system. Virtual servers house both applications and data. Using fewer variables, we can rapidly expand the instances. A customized operating system, which is currently unavailable and cannot be utilized for all application testing, should be available in the marketplace as well.

For the past five years, we've been using IBM Power System Virtual Server to move some of the load of our mid-range business support systems from physical to virtual. For the time being, it's being used throughout our company's business department to help with client administration, billing, and accounting. The key business concerns that this solved were (1) replacing our old infrastructure and (2) giving our systems a much-needed performance and availability boost. We can now do maintenance windows considerably less frequently, and our uptime has increased dramatically. As a result, we've become more efficient in completing our daily tasks. Batch processes, for example, are no longer required.
