IBM Pure Systems has hit a home run for ISVs by achieving a brand that represents ease of use, quick installation, and broad functionality in one package. The top causes of project delays for:
Troubleshooting and tuning production environment
Integration, configuration and testing of the infrastructure
Installation, cabling and network access for the environment
Integration, configuration and testing of applications
Integration, configuration and testing of middleware
Configuration, build and deployment of applications
Pure Systems from IBM addresses all these issues by providing production ready servers that are configured, integrated and available for applications, middleware, database and storage within four hours of hitting the data center floor. The Pure Systems solution is making every part of the IT lifecycle easier. A unit comes with integrated management of the entire system and a broad open ecosystem of optimized solutions.
The cost reduction is achieved as companies are enabled to implement a cloud system in-house and are then ready to move virtualized images to a hosted cloud environment if the economics are compelling enough and the security is good enough in the hosted cloud. Pure Systems enables virtualization and consolidation of images.
IBM pure Systems has hit a home run for the data center by implementing integration by design. Deeply integrating and tuning hardware and software in a ready-to-go workload optimized system is set to increase the profitability of the ISVs immediately and for a long time to come.
