How do you deliver the best performance at the best cost to your customers in today’s rapidly changing environment? Stick with a solution that can enable you to deliver faster insights with superior economics through flexible private and hybrid cloud offerings built on open standards.

At IBM InterConnect in Las Vegas February 21-25, IBM Power Systems will be there to help attendees unleash the power of hybrid cloud, and to have some fun too.

The IBM Systems booth

The IBM Systems booth #116 will be the go-to spot for all things Power Systems. There will be live demos, including POWER8 in SoftLayer/VCaaS, OpenStack with PowerVC, Docker, Turbo LAMP, Mobile Apps with IBM I and Hadoop and Spark with CAPI.

But, that’s not all.

#ExcelwithPower social media contest

IBM Power Systems will also be hosting a social media contest using stickers. Just stick one to your laptop, notebook, t-shirt or tablet. Snap a photo, and post it to social media. On the last day of the contest, Wednesday February 24, we will draw one lucky winner at random to receive a Raspberry Pi!

To participate in the social media contest, just follow these four simple steps:

Step 1. Pick up your Power Systems sticker (featuring the always cool Linux penguin.) We will have plenty available at IBM Systems booth 116.

Step 2. Snap a picture of the sticker on your laptop, your bag, your shirt or your face–wherever you want as long as it’s in good taste and doesn’t invade someone’s personal space. Get creative!

Step 3. Upload your photo to Twitter or Facebook. Use the hashtags #ExcelwithPower and #ibminterconnect to enter. Just be sure your Facebook or Twitter handle isn’t private (if it is, we won’t be able to see your picture.)

Step 4. Check the Power Systems Twitter and Facebook February 24 at 3 PM Pacific Standard Time (PST) for the announcement of the winner. If you participate, be sure to have your social media notifications on, so you don’t miss the opportunity to claim your prize at IBM Systems booth 116. Participants will have thirty minutes to respond to the tweet or the Facebook post and confirm that they will claim their prize.

While IBMers aren’t eligible to win the prize, we still hope you join in on the fun!

So stick with IBM Power Systems to reach your hybrid cloud goals, and participate in our social media contest to have some fun along the way.

Don’t forget to follow our Power at InterConnect Twitter list and keep up with all the action using #PowerSystems, #OpenPOWER and #ibminterconnect.
