Power your planet with smarter systems
Power is workload optimizing systems
To achieve maximum performance for both the system and its virtual machines, the new POWER7® processor-based systems are designed with workload optimizing technologies. New Intelligent Threads technology dynamically switches the processor threading mode to deliver optimal performance for different workloads. TurboCore™ mode offers the option to optimize the system for frequency and cache utilization delivering the maximum per core performance for database and transaction workloads. Active Memory™ Expansion helps reduce memory costs by enabling physical memory to be logically expanded up to 100 percent for some workloads – such as SAP.
Power is virtualization without limits
Smarter systems are designed for scalable virtualization. POWER7 systems enable massive workload consolidation to drive maximum system utilization and cost efficiency. IBM PowerVM™ and VMControl virtualization software plan support for up to 1,000 virtual machines for AIX®, IBM i and Linux® applications workloads on a single POWER7 processor-based system. PowerVM Live Partition Mobility enables companies to eliminate many scheduled outages by easily migrating applications between POWER6® and POWER7 systems.
Power is management with automation
IBM Systems Director provides advanced physical and virtual server platform management. IBM Systems Director Editions provide a broad choice of packages simple-to-use automated management tools, including the cross-platform virtualization management capability of VMControl, and selected Tivoli® enterprise service management tools.
Power is dynamic energy optimization
Smarter systems make better use of energy – both to save costs and contribute to a better environment. IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager™ exploits Intelligent Energy optimization features such as POWER7 EnergyScale™ technologies to dynamically balance energy utilization with maximum performance.
