IBM Power Systems

Delivering on the promise of system architecture

Today’s IT infrastructure is being pressured from many fronts; mobile devices and social business are driving an explosion of data along with new customer requirements plus security and privacy exposures.

Simultaneously, budgets continue to be constrained and IT complexity continues to rise. To solve these challenges, selecting the right technology and architecture is crucial. Learn how Power Systems offers the answer.

POWER – pioneering architecture: The first multicore server chip, first eDRAM cache, space exploration, first Simultaneously Multi Thread chip…all POWER innovation as part of three decades of performance and technology leadership. Hear from Brad McCredie, VP & IBM Fellow about today’s POWER innovations and a peek into the future.


Delivering client value through system design: Power Systems not only builds on the POWER chip architecture, but on its systems design as well. See how Power delivers value as Satya Sharma, IBM Fellow and Chief Technology Officer for Power Systems talks about designing for improved IT efficiency, new workloads and big data, and security.


Power security and compliance: No topic today carries greater interest than security and privacy. With “general purpose” architectures leaving company and customer information exposed and at risk, hear from Satya Sharma (Video,00:08:14) how Power Systems solves the challenges of security and compliance.


The system of choice: Power Systems have a long history of being the best – record-setting performance year after year, new innovations for processor and virtual machine performance and efficiency, growing from 16% share in UNIX revenue to 53% share, running many of the world’s largest ERP implementations, and helping competitive-installed clients migrate over 3,400 systems to Power in just the last three years.
