Are PureFlex and Convergence the Next Big Thing?

Every new product, service or solution introduced claims that it is the Next Big Thing since sliced bread. So, is the new family of converged infrastructure products from IBM PureFlex the next big thing in the IT industry? Let’s take a closer look. Convergence relates to the integration of servers, storage, and networking deployed with virtualization and management to create an agile IT infrastructure.


Converged systems offer application development and IT operation teams a new level of pattern-based infrastructure design, middleware engineering, and operations management automation that is likely to transform the way many organizations procure, design, develop, deploy, manage, and support mission-critical applications and infrastructure across the IT life cycle.


IBM PureSystems converged systems can radically simplify the end-to-end application and IT operations life cycle by taking time, cost, and complexity out of many activities. We feel that is indeed a Big Thing.


The main benefits datacenters can realize with converged infrastructure include:


  • Improved asset utilization.
  • Faster time to market.
  • Flexible capacity planning.
  • Bigger databases, larger VMs.
  • Greater VM densities.
  • Software License Merging.
