It’s no secret that dynamic technology changes are rapidly remaking how organizations do business. Technology is advancing so rapidly, in fact, that communities of collaboration are forming just to harness it all. The growing torrent of data from both within and outside your organization, from mobile employees and from customers and prospects, presents an unprecedented opportunity to gain valuable insights and apply these insights at the best point of impact to improve your business results.

Making the transition to advanced capabilities requires an integrated infrastructure that supports your key IT initiatives. IBM has made great investments to bring optimized solutions in the areas of advanced analytics, cloud, and mobile access are designed to simplify and accelerate your journey to address today’s market opportunities.

The latest generation of IBM® Power Systems™, with POWER8™ technology, is the first family of systems built with innovations that transform the power of big data and analytics, mobile, and cloud into competitive advantages in ways never before possible. These scale-out systems provide powerful, scalable, and economical means to put data to work for you.


  • Built with innovation that puts data to work
  • Brings insights to the point of impact faster through a data-centric design
  • Delivers better economics and quicker returns for scale-out infrastructure
  • Minimizes risk with secure delivery of data and services
  • Delivers open innovation, revolutionizing the way IT is developed and delivered

Designed for the demands of big data and analytics

Businesses are amassing a wealth of data and Power Systems can store it, secure it and, most importantly, extract actionable insight from it in a timeframe that matters. Power Systems are designed for big data. From predictive analytics and data warehouses to unstructured big data processing and cognitive Watson solutions, Power servers are optimized for the compute intensive performance demands of database and analytics applications, and can flexibly scale to support the demands of rapidly growing data.

Power Systems’ first generation of Scale-Out servers are built on POWER8 technology, and push the physical and virtual boundaries of data center technology with innovation designed to drive faster and more efficient data-centric applications required for today’s smarter enterprise. Building on a heritage of strong resiliency, availability and security, Power Systems’ open, data-centric design combines computing power, big memory, memory bandwidth, and broad pathways to process and move data through applications in ways that are easier to consume and manage.

Better economics for scale-out data and cloud infrastructures

Businesses are expecting a lot from the cloud and Power Systems has the performance capabilities to help organizations reap the benefits of improved economics with fewer scale-out servers. With higher utilization than x86 servers, Power Systems offers superior cloud economics. Through its PowerVM® and PowerKVM™ virtualization software and choice of leading cloud applications, IBM Power Systems virtualization provides intelligent, dynamic resource allocation for rapid response to workload demands.

IBM Power Systems 1 and 2 socket servers provide the ideal foundation for scale-out data and cloud environments, with the economic advantages and security you need to confidently move more data-centric applications to the cloud. With over twice the bandwidth as prior generation servers and a 65 percent system utilization guarantee, these systems allow open infrastructures to scale out intelligently with less hardware, power, and cooling requirements.

Deliver new capabilities for mobile applications

Core business systems such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management are crucial elements in responding to market needs. They manage and deliver the data that businesses—and their customers—demand. But increasingly, these Systems of Record are connected to employees and consumers through mobile and social Systems of Engagement designed to improve the user experience and drive competitive advantage. In this increasingly complex environment, mobile applications are now mission-critical and cannot run as isolated applications with their own set of data, and demand higher levels of service and improved performance.

Power Systems offers the open technologies required by mobile applications plus the computational speed, data bandwidth, low latency, and resiliency required to provide immediate, reliable responses to mobile users when they need it most. They gain the best of both worlds—combining the advantages of shared IT infrastructure for core systems and extending engagement systems securely and reliably through mobile applications.

Delivering open innovation revolutionizing the way IT is developed and delivered

POWER® architecture is the heart of the OpenPOWER™ Foundation, a growing community built around an open technology platform to foster new opportunities and deliver a broader set of applications and new technologies quickly.

Leveraging open standards, Power Systems provides developers with tools tuned for a platform that boosts productivity and performance by removing constraints imposed by commodity architecture. With an architecture that supports open standards such as Linux, OpenStack, KVM, and others—and with community innovation driven through Power Systems Linux Centers, Watson & Power development clouds, and the OpenPOWER Foundation—Power Systems will enable future integrated hardware solutions that dramatically accelerate compute and data-intensive tasks.

Delivering rapid ROI while transforming how critical business services are delivered

Whether you’re a current Power Systems customer or exploring the potential of what IBM Power Systems can bring to your IT service delivery, the innovations delivered in this new class of Power System servers are designed to protect existing IT investments and expand opportunities with deep integration of emerging workloads into current processes, enabling companies to deliver better business services to end users. Designed to share resources without performance conflict, new emerging applications can be rapidly deployed to bring immediate ROI to your business.
