Optimize your workload management through built-in expertise
With a workload-optimized approach, you can decrease infrastructure costs and improve service levels. You can create and modify system pools using virtual workloads, make dynamic virtual workload adjustments, and move workloads within system pools, resulting in an optimized virtual environment with increased resilience to cope with planned or unplanned down time. A system pool is a group of virtualized system components that are managed as a single entity, allowing you to manage the pools with the simplicity of managing a single system, which is an essential capability for moving to cloud computing and a dynamic infrastructure.
Manage all of your resources with one solution
Beginning with deployment through maintenance, upgrades, and problem resolution, IBM Flex System Manager is designed to provide all of the key management functions for your integrated IT resources from a single, easy to use interface. From your office or remotely through a secure connection, you can manage your compute, storage, network and virtualized resources.
