Product Description: IBM Power8 Power E870 Server

More Information:
The IBM Power E880 9119-MHE is scalable big iron that provides the highest levels of world-class enterprise level reliability, availability, flexibility and performance.
By scalable or stackable, that means that up to four E880s can be connected together to create a system with as many as 192 cores (at 4.02GHz) and 16TB of memory.
It essentially replaces the Power 795 in the IBM Power Systems product line and can scale from one to four nodes.
The E880 currently maxes out at 192 cores at 4.02 GHz, but can also do 4.19 and 435 GHz (check the chart below).
With the maximum 32 TB memory, it's designed for in-memory processing and will handle the most complex, mission-critical business needs.

IBM designed this server for users of it's IBM DB2 with BLU Acceleration.
Per IBM:
IBM DB2 is optimized to deliver industry-leading performance while lowering costs.
IBM DB2 offers extreme performance, flexibility, scalability and reliability for any size organization.
DB2 is a multi workloads SQL relational database system that is available on demand as a cloud service on Bluemix. Because of that, no hardware is required since everything is on the cloud.

There is a fixed monthly fee to access this, however.

This server includes the OpenStack cloud controller functionality (IBM calls it PowerVC), that links to PowerVM Enterprise (optional on the Power E850 8408-E8E).
This E series or E-class gets PowerVM rather than the PowerKVM that runs on the Linux only LC series.
