IBM Power Systems
IBM Power Systems accelerate big data insights and hybrid cloud deployment. A growing open server ecosystem infuses innovation into Power Systems so clients are better equipped for cloud, analytics and mobile workloads as well as handling complex, mission critical applications with confidence.
On a chip-per-chip basis, IBM Power Systems have almost always had a performance and price-performance lead on other comparable chips. With Power9, this trend continues.
As you can imagine, IBM is putting a lot of its energy in the Power Linux space, in order to build ecosystems, drive workloads, build more adoption, and advance technologies in high-end, scalable databases like SAP HANA, and in scale-out databases like MongoDB and Redis. These are, after all where Power Systems shines.
IBM Power9 Upgrades
- A die shrink to 14 manometers for better, raw chip core performance
- The bandwidth between the chip and memory is dramatically expanded from DDR3 to DDR4
- Open Power Foundation - a set of Linux systems will be available that’ll work with standard memory
- Chip Kill - if one core is experiencing a challenge, the system will deactivate that core and the rest of the compute will continue unfettered.
- Lane Steering - if you lose a link to the memory you can continue to process without any delays.
- Hardware enforced trusted execution - requires a workload to execute on a specific serial number in a trusted way, so that workload can never be hijacked, corrupted or interfered with.

Flash will transform your business with better data driven decisions in real-time. Mobile, social, analytics, cloud computing, and security are enabling businesses to reach new heights and have an unusually strong need for exceptionally fast storage. As businesses are discovering, no storage systems do a better job of satisfying that need than the IBM FlashSystem family of all-flash storage arrays, engineered for flash from the ground up. They provide microsecond response times, rather than the millisecond responsiveness of competing products like solid-state drives (SSDs) originally designed for slower disk-based systems.
FlashSystem arrays also enable even the biggest big data analytics applications to process massive quantities of information rapidly making Flash an ideal platform for cloud computing. FlashSystem arrays rev up data protection by helping security applications detect threats and enforce controls all but instantaneously, so businesses can safely harness the game-changing power of cloud computing, analytics, mobility, and social media. The demand for the absolute fastest possible access to data is growing and IBM FlashSystem arrays satisfy those demands fully and efficiently.

IBM Cloud Object Storage
Formerly named Cleversafe, IBM Cloud Object Storage is Software-defined and hardware aware single instance Object Storage that leverages commodity hardware and dramatically lowers cost. The software-based object storage has been developed for Exabyte-scale deployment, and is already in use by multiple customers who each have greater than 100PB of unstructured storage capacity in production. Instead of creating multiple copies of your data and storing them in different systems, a single instance is dispersed, stored and retrieved across a private storage cloud.
Feature and Benefits:
- Scale performance and/or capacity at any time
- No downtime operations
- Data encryption
- Erasure-coding techniques
- Reliability and availability
- No storage of multiple data copies
- No RAID sets or replication schemes
- Manage more Petabytes with less people
- Less raw storage
- Lower TCO
- Implemented on premise and/or hybrid cloud
- Distributed across geographic locations
