52% reductionin year over year IT costs through consolidation of x86 onto Power Systems

“The proven reliability of the IBM Power 570 servers meant that the

outages which had been an everyday experience for our employees quickly

became a distant memory.”

David Booth, CIO North American Construction Group

Moving from an x86 infrastructure to Power Systems

The challengeNACG faced challenges expanding as a business and lacked a “single version of the truth” for decision making due to frequent outages and poor performance of its ERP application.

The solutionAfter identifying the root of the issue as the instability of Dell servers running Microsoft Windows, NACG migrated the infrastructure to two Power 570s running IBM i. ERP outages have been essentially eliminated, response times are up to 96% faster, and NACG employees can focus on productive, more profitable work.

First, the world is becoming instrumented. Sensors are being embedded everywhere: in cars,

appliances, cameras, roads, pipelines...even in medicine and livestock.

Second, our world is becoming interconnected. Think of a trillion connected and intelligent things, and

the oceans of data they will produce.

Third, all of those instrumented and interconnected things are becoming intelligent.

They are being linked to powerful new back- end systems that can process all that data, and to

advanced analytics capable of turning it into real insight, in real time.

Notes:

1. SPEC® and the benchmark names SPECrate®, SPECint®, and SPECjbb® are registered trademarks of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation. Competitive benchmark results stated reflect results published on www.spec.org as of August 17, 2010. The comparison presented below is based on a consolidation of a legacy 8-core Sun SPARC Enterprise T2000 UltraSPARC T1 servers into a 16 core IBM Power 730. For the latest SPEC benchmark results, visit http://www.spec.org.

2. SPECjbb2005 results are:

POWER7: IBM Power 730 Express with 12 chips, and 16 cores and four threads per core with a result of 1,216,983 bops and 76,061 bops/jvm submitted to SPEC on August 17, 2010.

SPARC: Sun Microsystems Sun SPARC Enterprise T2000 with 1 chips, 8 cores and 4 threads per core with a result of 74,356 bops and 18,591 bops/jvm

*The virtualized system count and energy savings were derived from several factors:

A performance ratio factor of 24.7X was applied to the virtualization scenario based on SPECjbb2005. Power 730 (16-core, 2 chips, 16 cores per chip, 3.55 GHz) 1,216,983 bops , submitted on 8/17/2010; Sun SPARC Enterprise T2000 (8-core, 1 chips, 8 cores per chip) 1.4 GHz, SPECjbb2005 74,356 bops. The performance factor is simply the SPECjbb2005 result of the Power 730 Express divided by the result of the competitive Sun SPARC Enterprise T2000 server.

A virtualization factor of 3X was applied to the virtualization scenario using utilization assumptions derived from an Alinean white paper on server consolidation. The tool assumes 19% utilization of existing servers and 60% utilization of new servers. Source - www.ibm.com/services/us/cio/optimize/opt_wp_ibm_systemp.pdf.

Calculation Summary: the Power 730 to the Sun T2000 performance ratio is 16.37 Multiply by 3 for the virtualization factor. Hence, 16.37 * 3 = 49 T2000 servers can be consolidated into one 730 server.

The Sun T2000 is 2U in height and 21 can fit into a 42U rack. The 730 is 2U in height.

One 730 server is 16 cores per system. A Sun T2000 has 8 cores per system. 49 systems multiplied by 8 cores is 392 cores. The Power 730 Express has 95% less cores.

Power consumption figures of 1100W for the IBM Power 730 and 450W for the Sun T2000 were based on the maximum rates published by IBM and Sun Microsystems, respectively. This information for the 730 is in "Model 8231-E2B server specifications" available at http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/index.wss - search for Power 730. Sun T2000 Maximum AC power consumption of 450 WATTs was sourced from Sun SPAC Enterprise T2000 Servers site planning guide at http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/819-2545-11 as of 8/17/2010

The virtualized system count was derived from the following factors: A performance factor was applied to the virtualization scenario based on SPEC®results source: www.spec.org as of August 12, 2010. IBM Power 730 Express (16-core, 2 chips, 8 cores per chip, 3.55 GHz) SPECjbb2005 1,216,983bops, 76,061bops/JVM; A HP ProLiant DL360 G7 (12-core, 2 chips, 6 cores/chip, 2.93 GHz) SPECjbb2005 875,975 bops, 145,996 bops/JVM performance was used with equivalent processor and memory for the HP ProLiant DL380 G7. A 20% performance adjustment to the HP ProLiant DL380 G7 for VMware based on results published by VMware and IBM in conjunction with VMware that demonstrate a 10-20% performance overhead. A virtualized utilization factor of 65% was assumed for the Power 730 Express and 50% for the HP ProLiant DL380 G7. The difference in virtualization is based on the additional capacity of the Power 730 in a virtual environment and targeting similar headroom for each system for peaks in demand.

Notes on performance estimatesrPerf for AIX

rPerf (Relative Performance) is an estimate of commercial processing performance relative to other IBM UNIX systems. It is derived from an IBM analytical model which uses characteristics from IBM internal workloads, TPC and SPEC benchmarks. The rPerf model is not intended to represent any specific public benchmark results and should not be reasonably used in that way. The model simulates some of the system operations such as CPU, cache and memory. However, the model does not simulate disk or network I/O operations.

rPerf estimates are calculated based on systems with the latest levels of AIX and other pertinent software at the time of system announcement. Actual performance will vary based on application and configuration specifics. The IBM eServer pSeries 640 is the baseline reference system and has a value of 1.0. Although rPerf may be used to approximate relative IBM UNIX commercial processing performance, actual system performance may vary and is dependent upon many factors including system hardware configuration and software design and configuration. Note that the rPerf methodology used for the POWER6 systems is identical to that used for the POWER5 systems. Variations in incremental system performance may be observed in commercial workloads due to changes in the underlying system architecture.

All performance estimates are provided "AS IS" and no warranties or guarantees are expressed or implied by IBM. Buyers should consult other sources of information, including system benchmarks, and application sizing guides to evaluate the performance of a system they are considering buying. For additional information about rPerf, contact your local IBM office or IBM authorized reseller.

CPW for IBM i

Commercial Processing Workload (CPW) is a relative measure of performance of processors running the IBM i operating system. Performance in customer environments may vary. The value is based on maximum configurations. More performance information is available in the Performance Capabilities Reference at: www.ibm.com/systems/i/solutions/perfmgmt/resource.html
