IBM PurePower Technical Overview and Introduction

An IBM Redpaper publication

Abstract

This IBM® Redpaper™ publication introduces and provides a technical overview of the IBM PurePower System that helps support management of big data, social media, mobile, analytics, and the flow of critical information. A PurePower System can be configured in an affordable entry-level configuration in a single rack, and it is agile enough to be expanded for scalable cloud deployments. It has built-in redundancy for highly reliable and resilient operation to support demanding applications and cloud services, as required by many enterprises. A PurePower System also provides the scalability, flexibility, and versatility that you demand for business-critical workloads.
