IBM Power8 Systems push the boundaries (physical and virtual) of data center tech with innovation and speed. They are designed to power data centered apps faster and more efficiently.

The IBM Power System S812L runs Linux (Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server or Ubuntu Server) and makes an excellent base to build your public or private cloud on.
The 8247-21L is also optimized for Analytics and Big Data, with a fast response time for querying unstructured large sets of data.

General Features:
- Architecture at the heart of the open server development community and the OpenPOWER Foundation
- Open source server virtualization of PowerKVM or enterprise virtualization with PowerVM
- Plenty of power to consolidate multiple servers
- Advanced energy control
- Lower latency and smaller footprint with CAPI Flash

Yes, IBM is still making servers and they are better than ever.

All IBM hardware we sell is IBM certified, eligible for IBM maintenance contracts, and comes either with an IBM warranty, a Maximum Midrange warranty or both.
