1. Based upon testing of the IBM PureApplication System W1500-96 with time measured from powering on the system to when it is ready to support application deployments and based upon testing of the IBM PureFlex System Express & Standard models containing one chassis and one compute node with the time measured from powering on the system to when it is ready to support a virtual image deployment.

2. Up to 2X application density based upon simulations of virtualized applications on an IBM Flex System x240 Compute Node as compared to a previous generation IBM system. The IBM Flex System x240 Compute Node is available in IBM PureFlex System and IBM PureApplication System. Up to 2X performance of business applications based upon testing of IBM Storwize v7000 "Easy Tier" on previous generation IBM system. IBM Storwize v7000 is included in IBM PureFlex System and IBM PureApplication System.

3. VM Control Enterprise is standard on IBM PureFlex Enterprise and Standard models. VM Control Enterprise is available on IBM PureFlex Express at an optional charge.

* Based upon testing of the IBM PureApplication System W1500-192 deploying a single Virtual Application Pattern consisting of 2 WAS VMs, a DB2 VM, and updating the Elastic Load Balancer (ELB). The WAS VMs were allocated 4 vCPUs, 4 GB of memory and 12 GB of disk while the DB2 VM was allocated 8 vCPUs, 6 GB of memory and two virtual disks of 12 GB and 4 GB.
