Imagine a world where IT can’t deliver solutions that solve business challenges because data center innovation is stifled. Not all server architectures are created equal. Some chips and servers haven’t been able to keep up with the innovation required by AI, machine learning, advanced data analytics, augmented and virtual reality technologies (AR/VR) and other data-intensive computing.
Competition in the data center ensures that innovation continues at a rapid pace and keeps prices and quality in check. POWER architecture is a smarter alternative to x86 architecture, especially for data-intensive computing, and it’s not just us saying this either. Look at what other leading technology companies have said about POWER architecture.
In addition to choice, our industry needs transparency. You need a place to easily compare attributes, performance claims, price-performance and specs. Unfortunately, many times such data is hidden or simply not released. This is why we built our new Power Systems performance claims and proof points webpage – a consolidated place to find our performance values.
Data center decisions are big investments. How does Power Systems stack up against competitors? What does total cost of ownership look like by solution? How do specific workloads run on x86 compared to POWER? Now it’s easier to find the information you need to understand the options and make an informed decision.
Check out the Performance claims and proof points webpage and see for yourself how the POWER architecture compares to x86. See why choice of architecture in the data center matters. Now let’s let the numbers do the talking.
