4 IBM System x – BladeCenter – IntelliStation © 2006 IBM Corporation Systems Management Processors for System x  Lowers TCO by providing In-Band/Out-of-Band Monitoring/Control of Servers Same features as RSA-IIPlus Single network connection required for remote KVM, virtual media of all 14-blades Monitors I/O modules Same features as BMCPlus Support for SSL, LDAP, DNS, DHCP, and SNMP Remote KVM, virtual media Web Interface Same features as Mini-BMCPlus Light-path diagnostic control Serial over LAN Integrated, IPMI- compliant service processor Monitors voltages & temperatures Power-control, system restart Out-of-band management thru shared system NIC Mini-BMC BMC RSA II PCI/ Slim-Line Management Module (BC)

5 IBM System x – BladeCenter – IntelliStation © 2006 IBM Corporation Remove Supervisor Adapter II Slimline Adapter (39Y9566)  Overview –Acts as a “computer within the computer” Monitors server health / provides alerts if problems occur Helps to remotely troubleshoot and resolve problems Allows remote access to keyboard, video, mouse, and disks –Is offered as a PCI adapter and as a plug-in module PCI Adapter: Remote Supervisor Adapter II (RSA II) Module: Remote Supervisor Adapter II Slimline (RSA II Slimline)  Monitoring and Alerting… –Can detect problems before they occur using Predictive Failure Alerts IBM leads the industry, providing the widest ability to predict hardware failures on x86 systems –The RSA II can provide alerts if problems occur SNMP alerts can be sent to management software such as IBM Director The serial port can be used to send an alphanumeric page –Users can customize the monitoring and alerting to their needs  Remote Troubleshooting… –Keeps track of events that happen to a system Ex. power events, hardware failures or predictive alerts –Full Remote Power Control Allows the power to be controlled remotely (power on/off, restart) –The RSA II keeps a copy of the last “blue screen” for Windows

6 IBM System x – BladeCenter – IntelliStation © 2006 IBM Corporation RSA II Slimline Promotion Details  Announce: Feb 6, 2007  Duration:Feb 6 thru March 30  39Y9566IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter II SlimLine –List Price$ –Bid Index$331.10(list -14%)  Promo Rebate = $69  Fine print… –For a limited time only, eligible IBM Business Partners can receive a $69 rebate for each EDI or Web-based reported sale of an eligible new IBM Remote Supervisor Adapter II SlimLine to an End User, as defined in the IBM Business Partner Agreement. –End-User invoices must have a date of on or after February 6, 2007, but no later than March 30, –All qualifying sales must be reported via EDI or the Web-based reporting facility no later than April 30, 2007.

7 IBM System x – BladeCenter – IntelliStation © 2006 IBM Corporation Call to Action  Sell Management Benefits –Gain control… Lower costs. RSA Adapters as well as IBM Director  Demo the RSA Adapters –Leverage TAP to get an RSA up and running in your demo center –Remote connect to it during a sales call –Additional Management Demos:  Sell the RSA Adapters –How many open quotes do you have for high-volume systems ? –How many have RSA II Slimline on them ? –Impact to you? $350 Avg Unit Revenue boost per server –Set an attach rate goal and drive to it !
