RESEARCH PAPER: IBM LinuxONE Delivers Performance and Cost Benefits

Successful technology trends and innovations often have roots in cost reduction, simplicity and business agility. Ironically, in the era of virtualization and consolidation, the datacenter footprint has grown for many businesses, with a corresponding increase in capital expenditures (CapEx) and operational expenditures (OpEx).

One of the reasons costs increase through the adoption of technology is the distributed nature of many datacenters. New applications and workloads are deployed regularly to fuel digital transformation. As a result, new infrastructure is purchased, deployed, provisioned and managed in support of the business needs. And before long, costs have increased significantly.
