The arrival of POWER8 garnered a lot of positive media reviews. But what do analysts and industry thought leaders have to say about POWER8? Let’s find out.
IBM is honored to be recognized by Linux Journal readers as the winner of the “Best Linux Server Vendor” in the 2013 Readers’ Choice Awards—for the third year in a row. This recognition demonstrates the value of IBM’s continued commitment to industry-leading collaboration and revolutionary technology, and Linux on Power is a critical component of that commitment.
Next-generation workloads and applications are expanding and placing new burdens on data centers. Open technologies are fundamental to running an IT infrastructure for these emerging workloads – and it is necessary to have hardware in place that is optimized to run those workloads. IBM and SUSE are working together to make that possible.
Last April, we launched PowerLinux servers designed specifically to run Linux (Red Hat or SUSE). A week ago, we refreshed these systems (and many others) to run with faster, more efficient POWER7+ processors. In addition to faster computations, the systems come with double the memory and virtual machine capability, which means higher utilization rates by hosting more applications, data, and users on fewer machines.
In the past few years, we have seen many clients embrace the opportunities that a Smarter Planet creates — the world is undeniably instrumented, intelligent and interconnected — and this is changing how the systems of the world work.
“How scalable will my services be — and what do I need to do to maximize scalability for particularly dynamic services?” Business requirements and customer interests both change much more quickly today than at any point in the past.
Interest has been steadily growing around our PowerLinux solutions optimized for big data analytics and critical network infrastructure services, including the open source Hadoop platform
We know it’s hard to attend live events with our ever-growing schedules and shrinking travel budgets. We recognized this obstacle and launched the Smarter …
