Built In Expertise. The system uses patterns based on expertise from thousands of engagements to simplify and automate IT processes. This one deploys secure databases for e-commerce This one optimises the entire system stack to support business intelligence What's a pattern? A pattern encapsulates the best practices and expertise a system needs to easily deploy and optimise an application or process.

A new computing model, infused with expertise

Today’s IT departments don't have a moment to spare. And yet a typical department spends up to 161 days specifying, designing and procuring hardware for a new IT project (and up to 181 on software).1 Enter IBM PureSystems™. It’s an expert integrated system that’s changing the IT experience - for the better.

Beyond convergence

A roundtable of experts discuss how expert integrated systems are different from typical 'converged' or 'integrated' systems.

Introducing PureSystems

The new role of IT

They're not in the back room anymore. They're driving business innovation.

Cloud-ready

IBM PureSystems are cloud-ready right out of the box, allowing cloud environments to be deployed in as little as four hours.3

Making the case for an expert integrated system

Two reports from leading analyst firms present insights on IBM expert integrated systems you should be aware of.


1. Based on a 2011 commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of IBM.

2. Up to 2X application density based upon simulations of virtualized applications on an IBM Flex System x240 Compute Node as compared to a previous generation IBM system.  The IBM Flex System x240 Compute Node is available in IBM PureFlex System and IBM PureApplication System.  Up to 2X performance of business applications based upon testing of IBM Storwize v7000 "Easy Tier" on previous generation IBM system. IBM Storwize v7000 is included in IBM PureFlex System and IBM PureApplication System.

3. Based upon testing of the IBM PureApplication System W1500-96 with time measured from powering on the system to when it is ready to support application deployments and based upon testing of the IBM PureFlex System Express & Standard models containing one chassis and one Compute Node with the time measured from powering on the system to when it is ready to support a virtual image deployment.
