IBM System x with VMware • Started an ESX deployment with HS21 blades and were able to get 10 - 12 guests per blade. • Then we started a new Distributed Platform DEV network using the newly released 3850 M2's – More RAM density – Better Performance • Cluster expanded to 9 VMware hosts running 4.x supporting 500+ guests. © 2014 Total System Services, Inc.® All rights reserved worldwide.

IBM System x with VMware • Internal LAN growth and a Virtual First Initiative • LAN Clusters were 8 nodes at each data center with a 50 - 60 guest average • Mission Critical applications on VMware • Performance was better on the virtual platform than their older physical servers © 2014 Total System Services, Inc.® All rights reserved worldwide.

IBM System x with VMware • As we upgraded to the X5 series we got better consolidation and performance • Over the past 3 years we have had 100+% growth (1,000 to 3,400 guests) in our VMware environments but have been able to maintain the same 90 socket count. • Through the releases of X5, vSphere 5.0, 5.1, and current Intel Westmere and Sandy Bridge processors we have been able to increase our physical to virtual CPU ratio from 1:3 to 1:8 © 2014 Total System Services, Inc.® All rights reserved worldwide.

IBM System x • Even with all the great performance we get from System x it doesn't mean anything if it's not available • The IBM System x equipment has given us outstanding up time! © 2014 Total System Services, Inc.® All rights reserved worldwide.

VMware and the new IBM X6 • From what we have seen X6 will take this to a whole new level • Performance is out the park! – New technologies such as eXFlash – This will allow is to be able to move our largest most intense applications and Databases to a virtual platform • Better consolidation and performance © 2014 Total System Services, Inc.® All rights reserved worldwide.
