How does your system stack up against POWER6 processor-based servers?


Power performance

IBM Power™ servers lead HP and Sun in performance in highend systems, in midrange systems, in entry systems, and in blade systems. That's right – Power servers are the leader in all the categories.


Power efficiency

The combination of performance, consolidation, and virtualization enables you to save up to 90% of the energy required by Sun, HP and Dell servers. POWER6 processor-based servers require less power for same class servers and provide even greater savings in highly consolidated environments.


Power availability

The IBM Power servers implement reliability, availability and serviceability features inspired by more than 40 years of mainframe experience in running mission-critical applications.

Our POWER6 processor-based servers support:

No competitive UNIX or Linux server has a majority of these features.

Power virtualization

POWER6 processor-based servers are unique among UNIX® and Linux® servers in that they support the same virtualization product, PowerVM™, and almost all of the same virtualization features in the entire IBM Power server product line. Even more impressive are the features of PowerVM.
