To draw insights and make better decisions, businesses rely on the secure, flexible and open platform of IBM Power Systems. Built with the first processor designed for big data workloads, the design of Power Systems combines the computing power, memory bandwidth and I/O in ways that are easier to consume and manage, building on strong resiliency, availability and security.
Power Systems S class servers are affordable, easy-to-deploy and energy efficient application servers, consolidation servers, or standalone servers for Linux, UNIX, and IBM i workloads. Available with up to 24 cores, these 1 and 2 socket servers offer better cloud economics and security for businesses that need smaller or scale-out deployment options for data-centric applications.
Linux only based Power Systems running Ubuntu, SUSE, or Red Hat Linux are priced to compete with commodity alternatives, while offering superior performance and ROI for compute- and data-intensive applications. With both PowerVM and PowerKVM virtualization options available, these systems offer the flexibility you need to quickly integrate innovative technology solutions, avoid vendor lock in, and accelerate business results.
Power Enterprise servers are designed for data and offer businesses the ultimate in resiliency, availability, security, and performance. This class of system, capable of running Systems of Engagement alongside Systems of Record, runs AIX (UNIX), IBM i and Linux, provides up to 256 POWER7 processor cores with up to 8TBs of memory and includes the flexibility to turn processors and memory on and off and shift activations from system to system as application workload dictates.
Power Systems high performance computing solutions configured into highly scalable AIX® and Linux® clusters offer extreme performance for demanding analytic and big data workloads such as computational chemistry, petroleum reservoir modeling, weather forecasting, climate modeling, and financial services.
IBM PureFlex System™ provides compute, storage and networking resources in one environment that is both efficient and easy to manage. IBM Flex System components provide an open ecosystem of advanced networking, storage, and virtualization technologies with flexibility for a variety of workloads.
