Everyone knows what 'performance' meant for IT in the past. Built on the foundation of POWER7+ processor technology, our Power Systems Express servers continue to excel and extend industry excellence in the traditional benchmarks of performance.
But today we are in the midst of an important technology shift driving growth and innovation - built on the confluence of big data, cloud, mobile devices and social business. As processes become more interrelated and complex, IT is being called upon to solve challenging new problems - and implement new IT projects - delivering them with both higher service levels and in a more cost effective manner. This era presents a defining moment for IT organisations to reshape the value they deliver through the customer experience.
The emerging measures of IT performance today are around agility and the ability to help the business capitalise on new opportunities. IT is measured on providing an infrastructure that can handle rapid growth and manage business risk while meeting higher required service levels. And of course it is expected that new services will be delivered with tighter budget constraints - with IT expected to do more with less and find the lowest cost solutions possible.
Built on the impressive performance of the POWER7+ processor, the Power 710 Express is a one-socket server that supports up to eight POWER7+ cores in a dense, rack-optimised form factor. As a high performance infrastructure or application server, the Power 710 Express contains innovative workload-optimising technologies that improve performance based on client computing needs. In addition, it includes Intelligent Energy features that help increase performance and optimise energy efficiency, resulting in one of the most cost-efficient solutions for UNIX®, IBM i and Linux deployments. And, with solutions from thousands of independent software vendors (ISVs), you can make the choices that set your business apart from the competition.
