Boost raw compute performance for your applications with IBM POWER9-based Power Systems Servers.
Many applications still require raw compute performance. Among these are financial analysis and scientific applications, which require raw performance as well as memory bandwidth. These applications are traditionally powered by the most robust processors like IBM Power9 and the new E900 family of servers, the E950 and E980.
The E980 is the most powerful server in the IBM Power Systems portfolio. It boasts 192 cores, with 16-sockets, a memory capacity of up to 64 TB, and is a 5U form factor. The E950 is a bit smaller with up to 48 cores, 4 sockets, 16 TB memory capacity, and a 4U form factor.
- Designed to run AIX, IBMi and Linux operating systems, all are cloud and AI ready. The IBM POWER9 chip was designed for the demands of AI and cognitive.
- IBM Power9 servers reduce the cost of maintenance. Up to $600,000 over 3 years on the E980, and up to $200,000 on the E950.
- IBM has partnered with NVIDIA to boost performance. IBM’s POWER9 chip with NVLink 2.0 delivers 87.5% increased bandwidth over the POWER8 chip.
- The systems can sustain 99.9996% uptime, appealing to IT shops that run critical portions of their business in the cloud.
IBM plans to deliver servers based on its Power9 processors through the end of 2019. Fill out the form on the left if you’re interested in learning more about the advantages of Power9.
