IBM Announces the launch of the New Power 8 system

The first POWER8-based systems to debut are five Power Systems S-Class servers designed for large, scale-out computing environments.  With industry-leading server quality and utilization levels, the new line-up redefines today’s data centre economics – by helping to reduce floor space, power and cooling costs. IBM has designed these systems to operate at industry-leading levels of efficiency, guaranteeing the system will perform as warranted while at a sustained 65% utilization -- a rate higher than common x86 utilization levels. With twice the data throughput compared to an x86-based server, the new Power Systems can help cut data centre footprints in half.

With availability beginning June 10, the new scale-out S Class servers include two systems that run Linux exclusively – the Power Systems S812L and S822L servers. The two additional offerings, the Power Systems S814 and S824 servers, provide clients the choice of running multiple operating systems including Linux, AIX and IBM i.  Available in 1 and 2 socket and 2U and 4U configurations.
