PowerLinux redefines Linux® performance
PowerLinux servers run industry-standard Linux from Red Hat or SUSE. They exploit the advanced hardware and software capabilities of POWER7 to deliver services faster, with higher quality and superior economics. With PowerLinux, your company doesn't have to be a prisoner of "good enough" computing. Businesses considering x86 systems should take a serious look at PowerLinux and learn why Power is performance redefined.
PowerLinux elevates Linux
The power of Linux has changed computing. Embedded in everything from mobile phones to video games to search engines to social media, this operating system has proved to the world that open-source software can be as robust and valuable as traditional alternatives. As a result, Linux has rapidly become the operating system of choice for large and small organizations worldwide for deploying flexible, secure and cost-effective new applications. PowerLinux elevates the best attributes of Linux server applications to new levels.
PowerLinux benefits from UNIX resiliency
Companies are moving business critical solutions to Linux. Doing so allows them to reduce costs and increase flexibility, but the challenge becomes how to gain these advantages with the same quality of service achieved with proprietary UNIX®. PowerLinux servers solve this challenge by leveraging the self-healing and self-managing capabilities of IBM POWER in Linux. Customers can confidently run highly scalable, highly reliable, and highly flexible Linux environments on POWER processor-based servers.
PowerLinux optimizes emerging workloads
Watson embodies the principles of optimized system design. Based on PowerLinux technology, Watson combined POWER7 hardware with IBM’s DeepQA analytics software and the domain knowledge and expertise of IBM’s Research team. The result—a brilliant landmark result on TV’s Jeopardy! game show—was impressive, but Watson merely hinted at the real-world value of Linux-powered applications running on workload-optimized systems. PowerLinux solutions are optimized for your emerging business challenges.
