A customer has invited an IBM sales representative to discuss running their application of WAS ND on Linux. They are concerned about the overall cost of the solution, especially with the ongoing cost of the software. The sizing guide is requiring 72-cores of Ivy Bridge EX System (4-socket servers processors). To lower their cost, the sales representative discussed the option of running WAS ND on a POWER8
E870 40-core systems using IFLs. The customer mentioned that the TCA would be lower for x86.
What TCO factors should be addressed for purchasing POWER8 instead of the x86?
A. POWER8 offers better performance and has four times the number of threads which would require fewer cores than the Ivy Bridge EX server.
B. The E870 is 120 PVU/core compared to the Ivy Bridge EX at 100 PVU/core; but since POWER8 requires 44% fewer cores, the solution would be less costly for the software.
C. PVU IFL licensing is equal to Ivy Bridge EX; but requires fewer cores for POWER8, and could use fewer cores which would reduce cost.
D. IFLs reduce the acquisition cost of the E870 and the PVU IFL licensing is 30% less costly than Ivy
Bridge EX per core, which reduces their software cost by about 60%.
