Who is this server for?
The IBM Power S824L (without the NVIDIA GPU) server is primarily designed for mid-sized to Enterprise level businesses (although, we have seem them installed in smaller businesses).
It can help you capitalize on new opportunities, manage business risk, and still keep your budget watchers happy.

Compared to the 8247-42L, the 8246-42L is still Linux only, but does not include the NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPU that is installed in a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot.
