IBM has recently announced the company's new and most powerful and energy-efficient mainframe ever, the zEnterprise System. According to the company, the new IBM zEnterprise System is a move to fundamentally change data center management. Also noted in this news release on TTKN News, the IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension allows supports purpose IBM POWER7 and System x BladeCenter systems as well as blades optimized for specific workloads, such as analytics and managing Web infrastructure.

The IBM zEnterprise System may change how data centers are managed.

"The new systems design combines IBM’s new zEnterprise mainframe server with new technology–the IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension and the IBM zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager–that enable it to manage workloads running across System z, and select POWER7 and System x servers. The new technology is the result of an investment of more than $1.5 billion in IBM research and development as well as more than three years of collaboration with some of IBM’s top clients around the world.

"As a result, customers can integrate the management of zEnterprise System resources as a single system and extend mainframe qualities, such as governance and manageability, to workloads running on select IBM POWER7 and System x blade servers. With the ability to manage workloads across systems as one, the zEnterprise System can drive up to 40% lower acquisition costs and reduce cost of ownership by 55%."
