IBM Power Systems Entry Servers

Power Systems 1 & 2 Socket Scale-Out Servers

IBM Power Scale-Out Systems are affordable, easy-to-deploy and energy efficient and they are backed by a trusted network of IBM BPs and industry solution providers. These systems offer an ideal choice for businesses that need entry or scale-out deployment options for business critical applications, especially for those who are looking for a more efficient and lower cost IT environment than x86 commodity solutions can deliver.

IBM Power S814: Designed for 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 with up to 8 POWER8 processor cores and up to 1 terabytes (TB) of memory.

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

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 2 TB of memory.

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

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

IBM Power S824L: Leverage OpenPOWER technology, designed specifically to support the unique requirements of dual NVIDIA Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) accelerators, this (2-socket up to 24 POWER8 processor cores) server offers the potential for dramatic accelerations of targeted technical computing, big data and Java™ workloads.

Linux – Extending the value of POWER to industry-standard Linux

Red Hat (RHEL), SUSE (SLES) and Canonical (Ubuntu) distributions of Linux run natively on POWER processor-based systems, offering a scalable Linux alternative for open source applications. Reducing server sprawl through consolidation and virtualization is a key priority for many companies today and Linux provides a scalable, optimized and cost competitive alternative to running Linux on commodity x86 servers.

Linux is the low cost deployment platform of choice for vital solutions like big data & analytics, cloud environments, mobile enablement platforms and social media collaboration services. Power Systems for Linux like the Power S812L and S822L are optimized for Linux environments and priced to compete with 1 and 2 socket x86 Linux solutions. In addition to enabling lower cost deployments of industry-standard Linux, these systems offer more efficient server virtualization versus x86 commodity server alternatives:
