Open Innovation to Put Data to Work
The next generation of Power Systems is here! The new POWER8-based systems are a result of a $2.4B, 3+ year development effort, underscoring IBM’s commitment to providing higher-value, open technologies to customers. Ideal for deploying cloud, big data, and mobile systems of engagement, they offer higher quality of service and improved performance and scalability compared to competitive scale-out servers. If you’ve been waiting for an infrastructure solution uniquely designed for a new era of big data, now is the time to act.
Given the ever-changing nature of today’s business demands, it’s become clear that traditional approaches no longer apply. To deliver a high-value solution it’s imperative for businesses to consider different solutions, including improvements that leverage their existing IBM i and Power Systems infrastructure and skills.
First Distribution Offers IBM POWER8
An easy way to ensure your organisation remains efficient while delivering a much higher value. The Power Systems servers enable organisations to manage staggering data requirements with unprecedented speed.
Based on IBM tests, POWER8 servers running DB2 with BLU Acceleration, can analyse data 82 times faster than a comparably configured x86-based system. Companies have reported analytics queries running 1000 times faster, reducing run times from hours to just seconds.
Three out of four of the new Power Systems can run various combinations of Linux, IBM AIX or IBM i operating systems. The fourth Power System, S822L, runs Linux exclusively to simplify migration of Linux applications to POWER-based cloud deployments.
