It's time for "good enough" computing to end
In the weeks since IBM's announcement of PowerLinux solutions, our momentum has been growing. Clients understand the need for computing infrastructure that is more than simply good enough, and value the existence of a better choice to deploy the emerging workloads that run their business.
IBM is also working with innovation partners like the Centre for Innovation Management Studies (CIMS) at North Carolina State University’s Poole College of Management, to “expand the possibilities in the area of big data analytics for research and learning across the university,” according to Paul Mugge, CIMS Executive.

Reduce cost with solutions more powerful than x86 Linux, more scalable than VMware, and more reliable than Windows.* (US)
PowerLinux solutions are optimised to deliver high value Linux services, and are specifically designed to bring the capabilities of POWER to customers of competitive x86. These capabilities include throughput that outruns Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors, dependability that measurably exceeds that offered by Windows, and optimised PowerVM virtualisation that offers higher workload density than VMware.
IBM’s PowerLinux solutions extend the performance of POWER to new servers that run industry-standard Linux, tuned to the tasks of:
PowerLinux solutions deliver Linux services faster, with higher quality, and more economically than ever before. Make them your open standard choice for deploying applications.
Big data analytics
Deliver actionable insights faster - PowerLinux big data analytics solutions are optimised for massive scale analytics on data-in-motion and data-at-rest.
- A Hadoop cluster built with PowerLinux technology can sort through a terabyte of data 42% faster than one built with commodity x86 hardware* (US).
Open source infrastructure services
Reduce acquisition costs - deploying open source infrastructure on the PowerLinux platform combines competitively priced POWER servers and PowerVM virtualisation with open source applications.
30% less expensive
- The University of Hamburg reduced their acquisition costs 30% by choosing a PowerLinux solution over commodity x86 hardware.
Industry application solutions
Differentiate in a crowded market - applications designed for your industry and deployed on PowerLinux are customised to your specific needs, and hardened against failures.
43% less downtime
- SAP deployments built on IBM PowerLinux have 43% less downtime than similar deployments on Windows.

Delivering IT services faster with superior system performance
PowerLinux servers and systems software – built on POWER
IBM PowerLinux Solution Editions are built on world-class POWER systems equipped with two sockets and up to 16 cores. These value-priced servers compete with x86 servers on cost, while delivering greater performance, higher utilisation, and superior availability. PowerLinux solutions help deliver higher solution value.
These systems incorporate Power Systems’ landmark PowerVM server virtualisation and Systems Director VMControl virtual server management. These tools deliver trusted, state of the art virtualisation at the small, mid, and enterprise computing levels, and are broadly deployed in production environments worldwide.
"The POWER architecture brings choice to customers, a core value proposition from Red Hat."
