Linux on IBM Power Systems





IBM Power Systems

Welcome to the waitless world



Imagine if we were living in a world without wait. That’s the waitless world. The world ushered in by IBM Power Systems™. Where terabytes of data can be handled in milliseconds—5 to 10 times faster than today’s supercomputers. It’s a world where everything is open. And cloud economics makes it all affordable.



What's New with POWER8  








April 23, 2014—more than a year ago—was a seismic day for IBM Power Systems*. That’s when IBM debuted new POWER* servers built from the ground up to harness big data with the new IBM POWER8* processor. And it was when the OpenPOWER Foundation—then composed of about 25 member companies (and now with more than 130 in 22 countries)—unveiled the first innovations from the initiative to make POWER hardware and software available for open development.

IBM Power8 announce HighLights





Fast forward to today and the muscle just keeps growing behind the effort to provide higher-value, open technologies to manage today’s unprecedented data demands with the speed and agility that proprietary business models can’t.

IBM recently made announcements that showcase POWER technology’s capability to deliver waitless computing. At the core of POWER is an open server ecosystem that’s providing a superior alternative to x86 for big data workloads.


Power Systems With Power8 Enterprise






First, IBM unveiled the Power Systems E850. The Power E850 represents a leap forward in four-socket servers for big data insights and superior cloud economics. The Power E850 is the industry’s only four-socket system that offers flexible capacity, guaranteed utilization and superior scale.

Second, IBM doubled the top-end capacity of our largest server. The E880 now features up to 16 TB of memory, up to 192 cores and delivers ideal linear scaling as demonstrated with IBM’s DB2* with BLU Acceleration—big muscle that improves clients’ capabilities to respond to the peaks and valleys of workload demand and creates a more efficient and cost-effective path to business insights.

With IBM POWER8 and DB2 technologies together, clients gain a rich set of Power Systems technology-based analytics solutions with the IBM DB2 Solution for BLU Acceleration–Power Systems Edition, IBM’s next- generation in-memory computing platform for speeding analytics.

Third, IBM and SAP teamed to help organizations win the data challenge. IBM announced Power Systems Solution Editions for SAP HANA— integrated solutions that combine the latest-generation POWER8 systems with SAP HANA software. The new collaboration accompanied SAP’s announcement of full support of the SAP HANA Business Warehouse in-memory database management system on Power Systems as well as plans to bring SAP HANA Business Suite applications to the Power Systems portfolio by the end of 2015.

With this partnership, IBM and SAP are expanding the enterprise-class capabilities available to mutual clients for quickly extracting business insights from data. POWER8 enables SAP HANA to run more queries in parallel faster, across multiple cores with more threads per core than possible on commodity-based servers. Clients now have more choice in leveraging the POWER8 processor—built specifically to manage and gain rapid insights from data.

With these Power Systems announcements, businesses are afforded greater performance based on new, differentiated and open innovations, and a waitless experience in gaining insights from data.
