The facts that really matter
1,000 Oracle/Sun clients recently upgraded. To IBM Power Systems.
Power is performance redefined helping transform your business with an experienced partner.
Since 2009, over 1,000 clients moved business to Power Systems™ from Oracle/Sun. Some were swayed by up to 60% drop in IT costs.

We'd welcome the opportunity to show how IBM Power Systems could help your organization, too.
