IBM Power9 PN: 9006-12P - Feature Code LC921
This PN provides one IBM Power9 For Linux.
IBM Power Systems are engineered for the most rigorous and data-intensive computing tasks on the planet. These servers, primed for cloud deployment, empower you to extract valuable insights from your data flow - whether it's overseeing mission-critical data, managing operational data repositories and reservoirs, or facilitating top-tier performance in cognitive computing.
With unmatched reliability and security measures, our infrastructure is crafted to effortlessly handle the most demanding data workloads imaginable, all while safeguarding your business interests.
The IBM Power System E950 presents a distinctive fusion of enterprise-grade functionalities within a dependable, space-saving 4-socket 4U form factor, delivering outstanding performance at a reasonable cost. Featuring two to four IBM POWER9 processors in configurations of eight, ten, eleven, or twelve cores, along with up to 16 TB of DDR4 memory, integrated PowerVM virtualization, and Capacity on Demand (CoD), no other 4-socket system in the industry matches this blend of per-core performance, effectiveness, and business adaptability.
Ideal for expanding medium-sized businesses or serving as a departmental server or foundational component for large enterprise data centers, the Power E950 offers an open, data-centric design characteristic of Power Systems. This design seamlessly integrates computing power, memory bandwidth, and extensive data pathways to facilitate the processing and movement of data across applications in a more accessible and manageable manner.
The Power E950 server optimizes throughput through the utilization of new POWER9 processors capable of supporting simultaneous multi-threading of up to eight threads per core (SMT8). Each Single Chip Module includes on-chip memory controllers and can leverage up to 128 MB off-chip eDRAM L4 cache, delivering a remarkable 230 GB/sec of memory bandwidth per socket. Additionally, I/O bandwidth sees a significant increase thanks to the integration of new PCIe Gen4 I/O controllers directly into the processors, further reducing latency.
As the cornerstone for a private cloud infrastructure capable of driving large-scale, mission-critical applications essential for leveraging data as a competitive advantage, the IBM Power E950 is tailored to meet your specific needs and comes equipped with enterprise-class security and efficient, integrated IBM PowerVM virtualization, ready for deployment.
