IBM Power 795: The most powerful system ever with up to 256 POWER7 processor cores and 16 terabyte (TB) of memory enables capability to consolidate up to 1,000 VMs.

IBM Power 780: Modular high-end system with up to 128 POWER7+ cores and 4 TB of memory in four nodes delivers leadership flexibility, scalability and resiliency vs. all other competitive servers.

IBM Power 770: Innovative modular server that provides non-disruptive growth from 4 to 64 POWER7+ processor cores, all with enterprise class RAS.

IBM Power 760: For virtualised consolidation of medium sized business workloads and demanding environments where uptime is critical, features 1 to 4 processor sockets and 12 to 48 POWER7+ processor cores, with processor Capacity Upgrade on Demand and up to 2 TB of memory.

IBM Power 750: For server consolidation and virtualisation projects, features 1 to 4 processor sockets and 8 to 32 POWER7+ processor cores. The Power 750 is the server that was used by Watson and is now enhanced with greater capacity, expanded and faster I/O capabilities and even higher performance.

Power Systems S class servers (scale-out, 1- and 2-socket)

IBM Power Systems S class servers are affordable, easy-to-deploy, energy efficient and they are backed by a trusted network of IBM BP and industry solution providers. These servers offer an ideal choice for enterprises that need scale-out deployment options for business critical applications. Especially for those looking for a more efficient and lower cost scale-out environment than x86 commodity servers can deliver.

IBM Power S824: For analytics applications and small to mid-size database that can run on the same server platform with 1 or 2 processor sockets with up to 24 POWER8 processor cores and up to 1 TB of memory.

IBM Power S822: Designed for consolidation of multiple applications and infrastructure workloads in a virtualised environment with 1 or 2 processor sockets with up to 20 POWER8 processor cores and up to 1 TB of memory.

IBM Power S814: Designed with a highly secure and scalable architecture, providing a stable database and middleware platform for efficient deployment of business processing and mission critical applications, with 1 processor socket and up to 8 POWER8 processor cores and with up to 512 gigabyte (GB) of memory.

IBM Power S812L: Affordable and optimised for Linux environments, a 2U rack form factor, 1-socket, high-performance, energy-efficient server with 12 POWER8 cores and up to 512 GB memory is ideal for running multiple application and infrastructure workloads in a virtualised environment.

IBM Power S822L: Affordable and optimised for Linux environments, a 2-socket, up to 24 POWER8 processor core server lowering the entry cost of big data analytics, open infrastructure solutions and traditional scale-out Linux workloads.
