The IBM Power platform provides a flexible, secure and more easily managed infrastructure than competitive UNIX and x86 platforms. IBM’s investment in the Power technology has enabled IBM to differentiate the Power platform with undisputed reliability, superior security, higher virtual density with lower cost and quick provisioning of solutions in a cloud, while improving overall client experience.
Undisputed reliability – IBM’s AIX v 7.1 running on Power Systems, averaged approximately 10 minutes of per server/per annum downtime and recorded the least amount overall downtime.1
Superior security – 10X less reported security complaints than commodity servers based on Intel x86.2
Higher utilization, lower cost – PowerVM demonstrated virtualization efficiency and density that is 2.5X higher than competition to increase asset utilization and streamline integration of traditional and information-centric applications.3
Provision new workloads quickly and easily – Up to 58% faster project deployment.3
IBM is committed to delivering Power technology to the market that drives new opportunities for customers with leading analytics on a secure and highly efficient infrastructure.
What research analysts are saying:
“In the years 2011 and 2012, x86 deployments reported 205,181 more security incursions than Power Systems with the average cost per incursion 2.3X higher on x86.”
