To start off I’ll cut past some of the marketing and state that PURE Systems are IBM BladeCenters with some predefined hardware configurations that support both x86 and POWER work loads. With that being said the advantage to the PURE architecture is the software that IBM has assembled to orchestrate deployments of workloads across all of the integrated platforms. The orchestrator is named Flex System Manager (FSM). The FSM plugs into VMWare for x86, HMC for Power systems and other management system for virtualization platforms.
