The challenge

To reduce overnight batch run times and
make consumer banking applications
available longer.


The solution

Leveraged the ability of IBM i to identify
and ‘pin’ heavily used database files to
four solid state drives, optimizing batch
workload throughput.

40%

Associated Bank in Wisconsin reduced
overnight batch run time by implementing
solid state disks with IBM i

Cloud roadmap for i



Today



IBM i customers leverage static (built one time) partitions for testing or hosting purposes


Create virtual partitions


Create images (includes applications , OS, PTF, etc.) using NFS and network install.


Implement PowerHA
-

Provides fail over of partitions to a second backup system.


Capacity Upgrade on Demand


Applications leverage IBM i architecture


Build multi tenant/single OS image capabilities.


Multi
-
tenant isolation via subsystems, DB schemas, library lists and IASPs, and multiple application
server instances


System Directory User/Group and object authority capabilities


Workload capping capability for SaaS/Hosted applications


IBM i software packaging capabilities



Future


IBM i will be Cloud Ready


positioned to take advantages of new cloud technologies as
they become available.


Tooling for creating snapshots of an existing system. Image (partition) provisioning/cloning.


Fast spin up of a partition. Bringing up a new partition now takes minutes instead of hours/days.


Software for metering usage of hosted partitions


Cloudburst (cloud in a box): Packaging of hardware and software components to build private cloud


Applications can now use:


Tivoli usage and metering functionality for SaaS billing


VMControl rapid provisioning using the OVF image configuration/description

to include application specifics.


Partition Mobility and Hibernation. Move a partition live to another partition


Fail over for maintenance/outage does not require a restart of app and no delay


Checkpointing to allow rollback of an upgrade or PTF(s)
