What is IBM Power Systems?

IBM Power Systems Express offerings are products, solutions and services that matter to midsized and large corporations. Build around the new Power7 processor architecture and available in rackmodules or as BladeCenter, a Power server is designed to be the perfect solution for high-demanding tasks like big databases.

Today’s IT landscape for large enterprises is evolving rapidly and new measures of performance means delivering services faster, with higher quality, and with superior economics. Power Systems provide servers and software that are the foundation for an enterprise infrastructure that can help businesses manage rapid change, reduce business risk, and meet higher service levels – all in the most cost-effective manner.

 

Why IBM Power Systems

From reliability and virtualization features inspired by IBM’s unrivaled success in
mainframe systems to unique energy savings capabilities: an IBM Power solution can help you get the most from your IT assets so end users are enabled quickly through a cost-effective infrastructure with around-the-clock availability. With products and sollutions for large enterprises and mid-sized businesses and an integrated approach to the design and testing ensures your business can rely on the higher quality of service needed for a cost and energy efficient IT infrastructure.

A totally integrated approach to the design, development, and testing of each and every Power server ensures the resiliency required for today’s IT infrastructure. All Power7 server models include innovative reliability, availability and serviceability features that help you avoid unplanned downtime. And, with Capacity on Demand, Hot-Node Add and Hot-Memory Add, Power Systems enterprise servers ensure you can keep your most important applications available, even as you add capacity to handle new business demands.

All Power Systems include EnergyScale technology to reduce energy consumption and provide the ability to manage and customize energy usage. Live Partition Mobility and Live Application Mobility sustain system availability during maintenance or rehosting. Concurrent firmware and operating system updates enable applications to remain available. And, only Power Systems have two integrated hardware accelerators designed to enhance performance: Decimal Floating-Point for business applications and AltiVec vectorized math common in support of 3D modeling for high performance computing.

Power Systems are also optimized with the ability to securely run multiple applications on AIX, i and Linux operating systems on a single server, so you can manage fewer systems with lower cost and higher utilization. No longer do you need to manage complex and energy inefficient server farms with each server dedicated to a single application or operating environment. Now you can consolidate workloads and significantly reduce costs throughout your infrastructure, while dramatically improving your ability to meet changing processing demands.

According to IDC, Power Systems leads in worldwide UNIX server revenue share. The predictable delivery of innovation through the Power processor roadmap and IBM’s commitment to investment in AIX, IBM i and Linux operating systems on Power - with more than 15,000 supported applications - provides clients with the confidence that Power Systems are the right choice, for now and for the future.

 

Power virtualization

You can. With PowerVM.

Power Systems software options enable you to manage both physical and virtual environments, including the capability to control data center energy usage and orchestrate processing resources to better meet business goals. And, Power solutions are designed to provide you with a roadmap to continuous availability of mission-critical applications, even when an expected or unexpected interruption occurs.

Discover PowerVM

As businesses look for ways to maximize their IT infrastructure investment returns, they turn to PowerVM virtualization to consolidate multiple workloads onto fewer systems, increasing server utilization and reducing cost.

PowerVM provides a secure and scalable virtualization environment for AIX, i and Linux applications built upon the advanced RAS features and leading performance of the Power Systems platform. PowerVM offers Micro-Partitioning with the ability to run up to 10 partitions per processor core, and dynamically move processor, memory, and I/O resources between partitions to support changing workload requirements.

PowerVM Live Partition Mobility enables active partitions to be moved between servers, virtually eliminating planned downtime. Live partition mobility can also be used to upgrade workloads between Power7 processor-based servers without an application outage.

VMControl complements PowerVM by providing automated virtualization management that minimizes time to provision virtual machine images and enables management of system pools. With Power7, PowerVM and VMControl virtualization software will support up to 1,000 virtual machines on a single system, providing massive consolidation capability for exceptional costs savings.
