MODERN DATA PLATFORM

POWER architecture is at the heart of the OpenPOWER Foundation, a community that’s taking advantage of an open technology platform to help organizations create new opportunities and design next-generation applications to drive business success. The first to adopt open server technology, Power Systems help you more quickly and easily deliver a broader set of services and incorporate new technologies using the same technology footprint.

In today’s highly connected world – from supply chains to payment networks to digital business and complex portfolios, companies need to understand and navigate not just data, but relationships inside the data.

Need to modernize infrastructure/data platform architecture to support new data-intensive workloads?

CLOUD

Power Systems will help you deliver on the promise of cloud and take advantage of superior cloud economics. With higher utilization and performance capabilities and the ability to scale out and up, you can reap the benefits of improved economics associated with fewer scale-out systems. Leveraging the robust security built into the foundation of Power Systems, you gain the confidence you need to move more workloads to the cloud, capitalize on greater efficiencies and do more.

HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING

AI, deep learning, and data analytics workloads are driving an ever-growing set of data-intensive challenges that can only be met with accelerated infrastructure. That’s why at IBM, HPC is about systems that can augment human intelligence rather than simply run simulations and visualizations. It’s about systems that blur the line between HPC and AI. And it’s about open ecosystems because one size does not fit all.

IBM Power System HPC solutions, built with IBM® Power Systems™, IBM® Spectrum™ Computing, IBM Spectrum Storage™, and IBM Software technologies, and solutions from the OpenPOWER foundations, provide an integrated platform to optimize your HPC workflows, accelerate compute and data intensive tasks with a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), leading to a cost-effective path to scale through the Cognitive Computing journey from Data to Analytics to Learning.
