Every IT shop is trying to figure out how to save money and decrease risks by implementing a cloud environment — beginning with the right platform. IBM® System z® has had virtualization for years, and with new tools, it can support the provisioning, orchestration and monitoring necessary to successfully gain the value of cloud on a System z platform.
Have you considered implementing cloud on System z? Join us for a complimentary teleconference and learn how IBM solutions give you the capability to monitor, provision and automate activities needed for cloud service management and how IBM is enhancing cloud on System z going forward. We’ll show you how to create and reuse images automated with pre-built workload patterns, and later, automatically de-provision. This teleconference includes a discussion of the various new components available to support a cloud environment on System z, including Cloud Ready for System z — and image-based deployment for cloud service delivery and management—and Tivoli® Provisioning Manager. You’ll come away with a good understanding of why System z is a great cloud platform.
Join us after the teleconference for a live question-and-answer session. The teleconference will also be available for replay after the event.
