Power UNIX & AIX

The Undisputed Champion of UNIX Environments

Why IBM dominates the UNIX Market:

  • #1 in UNIX server share at 47%
  • Over 3,500 migrations from competitive technology
  • System Performance at 40%-60% per core advantage over competition
  • Scalability / Upgradability - investment protection
  • Virtualization - do more with less
  • Reliability - higher service levels
  • Long Term Product Viability - committed roadmap out to 2019

Companies embracing Smarter Computing are implementing IT infrastructure based on the IBM Power Systems platform that is designed for data, tuned to the task and managed with cloud technologies. With Power Systems, businesses can outpace their competitors by delivering services faster, differentiate their offerings by delivering higher quality services, and turn operational cost into investment opportunity by delivering services with superior economics.

AIX exploits decades of IBM technology innovation and is designed to provide the highest level of performance and reliability of any UNIX operating system.

Open Source Solutions

Open Source solutions allow you to extend core legacy applications and stay current with computing trends (e.g. mobile, cloud), without incurring exorbitant software acquisition costs and recurring licensing fees. Open Source solutions are backed by a community of over 2.5 million developers who create and support cost-free applications. PHP is the programming language of choice for many browser (web based) applications such as ERP, CRM, and CMS. We have been able to provide value to organizations struggling with inflexible green screen applications that are constraining the productivity of the business.

Expected Benefits and Values of leveraging GEMKO’s Open Source solutions:

  • Remove cost from your computing environment by saving thousands of dollars on software licensing and recurring licensing fees
  • Deploy robust, multi-platform, scalable, reliable and stable applications that can grow with changing business demands
  • Create or modify any one of the thousands of business applications available to fit your specific needs
  • Easily integrate applications on the IBM Power family of servers: AIX, Linux, IBM i
  • Modernize legacy applications to extend data and business logic to browser based applications

Power Linux

Reduce your IT's Total Cost of Ownership

Companies embracing Smarter Computing are implementing IT infrastructure based on the IBM Power Systems platform that is designed for data, tuned to the task and managed with cloud technologies. With Power Systems, businesses can outpace their competitors by delivering services faster, differentiate their offerings by delivering higher quality services, and turn operational cost into investment opportunity by delivering services with superior economics.

Both Red Hat and Novell SUSE Linux run natively on Power Systems, offering a scalable alternative for your open source applications.

If you are in need of consolidating multiple x86 servers or midrange servers, Linux + POWER is a “fit for purpose” solution that is an industry leader in RAS: Reliability, Availability, Serviceability

Linux continues to gain momentum and is being accepted as a mission critical operating system performing with a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

IBM PowerLinux 7R2 Server - Optimized for Linux

The IBM PowerLinux server and IBM PowerVM® for IBM PowerLinux are optimized for Linux, providing more efficient horizontal scaling at price points comparable to traditional Linux servers. The IBM PowerLinux 7R2 server delivers the outstanding performance and workload-optimizing capabilities of the POWER7® processor in a Linux only, dense, 2U rack form factor that is ideal for running multiple application and infrastructure workloads in a virtualized environment. The two-socket, high-performance, energy-efficient server supports sixteen POWER7 cores and a choice of Linux operating systems.

A simpler PowerLinux-based IT environment with fewer servers to manage helps reduce infrastructure costs and frees IT staff to focus on bringing innovative products and services to market faster. Replacing aging x86 based Windows servers with PowerLinux systems and open source applications can further reduce costs by eliminating high proprietary software license fees and upgrade charges.

  • Optimized for emerging and traditional scale-out Linux workloads
  • Economical foundation for optimized solutions
  • Deploy more secure, highly available solutions and services faster
  • More throughput per server with industry-leading performance and more efficient virtualization
  • Superior reliability and security
  • End-to-end system optimization

IBM PureFlex Systems

Built-in Expertise, Integration by Design, Simplified Experience

The PureFlex System combines compute, storage, networking, virtualization and management into a single infrastructure system that is expert at sensing and anticipating resource needs to optimize your infrastructure.

A PureFlex System includes integrated patterns of expertise designed to automate and optimize the deployment and mantenance of your workloads. With built-in expertise, the PureFlex System supports 66 percent faster management set-up time. Consolidation and management expertise from thousands of successful data center optimizations drives automation to signicantly reduce manual processes that consume too many staff hours. Optimization expertise also allows your infrastructure to flex to address unexpected demands without requiring expensive surplus capacity.

This system is designed to provide a simplified experience and reduce IT complexity without compromising the flexibility you need. “Scale in” integrated design reduces implementation to as little as a day vs weeks and enables payback in as little as 9 months. By delivering both simplicity and flexibility in a system with integrated expertise you can rapidly deploy IT services and keep them running at the performance levels you business demands, while still managing cost.
