Upgrade to IBM Power 720 for cost savings and performance gains

Contact us for more information

The information above is an estimate (using certain assumptions) of the cost savings and performance gains that you might be able to achieve when upgrading to a new Power 720 Express server. To connect with a trained IBM product specialist who can help calculate the cost savings and performance gains related to your specific IT environment, choose from the following options:

* Older installed iSeries models often have higher hardware and software maintenance charges than higher performing Power models do.

* Maintenance costs are based on standard coverage for the specified systems. This may be 24/7/365 for some systems, and 9-5 M-F for others. Contact an ibm.com Representative to determine maintenance costs for specific systems and your specific environment

* Commercial Processing Workload (CPW) is a relative measure of performance of processors running the IBM i operating system. Performance in client environments may vary. The value is based on maximum configurations. More performance information is available in the Performance Capabilities Reference.

These estimates were created using certain assumptions which may be material in your determination of whether to purchase a Power Systems solution. The suggested Power 720 Express server was selected based on a variety of factors, and may not represent your best solution. Your situation may vary due to many reasons, including required I/O, finance or lease terms, your location, your maintenance costs and prices, subscription currency and others. This estimate is not an offer to sell. You should speak with your ibm.com Representative for additional details and to obtain a detailed Total Cost of Ownership Analysis for your specific environment before making any decision.
