The IBM System p5 595 server has been withdrawn from the market, effective May 29, 2009. The learn more links provide information on the p5 595.
The IBM System p5™ 595 server is designed to help companies conquer their challenges to achieve a competitive edge. As the most powerful IBM System p™ server, the p5-595 can deliver exceptional performance, reliability, scalability and flexibility—enabling businesses to take control of their IT infrastructure by confidently consolidating application workloads onto a single system. Equipped with advanced 64-bit IBM POWER5+™ processor cores in up to 64-core symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) configurations, this server provides the processing power for a full range of complex, mission-critical applications with demanding processing requirements, including business intelligence (BI), enterprise resource planning (ERP), transaction processing and ultra high performance computing (HPC). With twice the number of processors, twice the memory capacity and nearly four times the commercial performance of the previous top-of-the-line IBM eServer™ pSeries® 690 server1, the p5-595 can ultimately help companies make decisions faster and drive business innovation.
Delivering advanced System p virtualization technologies such as Advanced POWER™ Virtualization2 plus Capacity on Demand (CoD) options, the p5-595 server can scale rapidly and seamlessly to address the changing needs of an on demand environment. It can execute the IBM AIX 5L™ and Linux operating systems simultaneously, providing the flexibility to run the applications businesses need to achieve their goals. And, extensive mainframe-inspired reliability, availability and serviceability features can help ensure that the system will be ready for business 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Specifically, the System p5 595 server provides:
1 Based on rPerf (relative performance), an IBM estimate of commercial processing performance. Comparison between a 32-core p690 with 1.9 GHz POWER4+™ processor cores and a 64-core p5-595 with 2.3 GHz POWER5+ processor cores.
2 Not supported on AIX 5L V5.2
