1 IBM Virtual Fabric Architecture Seppo Kemivirta Product Manager Finland IBM System x & BladeCenter 2007 IBM Corporation

2 Five Years of Durable Infrastructure Foundation for Success BladeCenter Announced in 2002 with Gb support 2Gb Fibre Channel support in 2003 Layer 2-7 support in X InfiniBand support in Gb Fibre Channel support in generations of Intel Xeon processors including latest Woodcrest 2 generations of PowerPC processors 2 generations of AMD processors Cell Processor in 2006, more in Gb uplink enablement in 2006 Advanced Management Module in 2006 Intel Quad Core (Clovertown) 2007 Compatibility is the foundation for smarter IT IBM Corporation

3 BladeCenter H The Foundation is Solid - Build Better IT Now One year ago IBM introduced BladeCenter H 10X the I/O performance 2X the I/O connectivity 2X the I/O capacity Built-in hardware based I/O virtualization Unleash the power of BladeCenter H with Virtual Fabric Architecture Fastest I/O throughput available Doubling of the ports per blade Leadership in concurrent fabric support Simplify everything with a complete I/O virtualization solution IBM Corporation

4 Chassis Portfolio - Evolution H2007 BladeCenter BladeCenter T BladeCenter H BladeCenter HT Highest density, lowest cost, power efficient Rugged for Telco/Military, AC/DC models, NEBS Ultra high performance, >10Gb capabilities for the datacenter Rugged ultra high performance, >10Gb capabilities for the Telco market One family, many applications, many environments, long term investment protection same blades, same switches IBM Corporation
