Why IBM PureFlex Systems Simplicity Is Sure To Win You Over

It’s no secret that the growing complexity of IT systems is beginning to become a burden on corporations these days. Besides the monetary costs involved in operating and maintaining a modern distributed network, the time costs can be extreme as well.A typical network infrastructure requires between three to six months to deploy, and more than 2/3 of businesses end up falling behind schedule in their deployments. Further, studies have shown that over half of IT staffs surveyed report significant downtime, anywhere from minutes to weeks, as a result of new deployments.

In short, modern corporate networking environments are becoming as much a liability as an asset. Yet, you need them to compete in today’s business world.

The IBM PureFlex Difference

These are the issues that Big Blue has decided to tackle head-on with their new line of IBM PureFlex server systems. Drawing from their long history of corporate IT solutions, IBM has focused on delivering powerful servers that can compete with any on the market, combined with features that save money while making them easier to use.

Simple Control

IBM PureFlex servers are as user-friendly as possible. They come preconfigured, requiring minimal deployment time. A PureFlex system can be set up and deployed in a matter of hours or days, rather than weeks or months.

Management is also consolidated and simplified. Every aspect of your network, regardless of underlying hardware, OS, or location is managed from a single console. A robust, integrated GUI allows the administrator unlimited oversight, from a network overview to the specific hardware on any particular node, instantly.

Simple Automation

With our networks growing ever more complex, it was probably inevitable that they would begin to administer themselves. IBM has embraced this with a series of smart systems that take day-to-day chores out of the hands of IT, leaving them to deal with larger, more important challenges.

IBM PureFlex systems can automatically balance their own workloads, distributing resources as needed. This is combined with power management systems that constantly seek to reduce overhead when power isn’t needed. They can monitor themselves for viruses and other intrusions, as well as detecting impending hardware failures before they threaten productivity.


The IBM PureFlex line is focused, above all else, on simplicity. They are easier to control and easier to manage, leading to decreased downtime and increased deployment speeds. This means money saved in our current sluggish economy.
