There is a big move afoot in the technology industry that is taking customers from reliable and secure server architectures to solutions that are ‘good enough’. This move is generally being motivated more by cost then the true desire to give up high reliability and security. The type of applications and data that are making this move though are still those applications that companies rely on to run the business. When high reliability and/or security are put on these ‘good enough’ solutions, simple solutions become complex and difficult to manage.

Imagine if you will…

What if you could still run your Linux database servers on equipment that was engineered to be 100% available, handle large memory models and had the highest rating for FIPS compliance built into the hardware?

And, what if this technology is able to run those same Linux databases, like:

  • MongoDB
  • PostgreSQL
  • NoSQL
  • MariaDB
  • Oracle

What if you could run all of the databases that you run today at a cost that is less than your current Linux x86 farm?

And imagine if you will a server that takes up significantly less valuable floor space in data centers that are becoming more and more constrained by multiple racks of x86 servers.

It’s not an illusion

All of this is possible today on IBM. IBM has been in the server business for over 60 years. The reputation IBM has built by providing the most robust hardware with the highest level of security is now available for your Linux workloads, particularly databases running the leading Linux distributions like Ubuntu, Red Hat and SUSE.

Flagship is able to work with you to provide you with a customized, comparative cost analysis for running your new or existing Linux workloads and show you how to save money while providing the reliability and security your Linux databases deserve. Schedule a consultation to learn more.
