Extend your POWER Systems infrastructure into the public cloud

Built on IBM OpenPOWER architecture, these servers combine high-performance, storage, and I/O to focus on increasing volumes of data while maintaining system speed.

Host your big data in a Linux environment. POWER8 servers will put your data to work, not just store it. Create a private and public hybrid cloud, and experience lower latency, better application efficiency, and increased cost savings.

Public

Get fast access to Linux compute in the cloud

Easily extend your current infrastructure into the cloud and get developers productive on Linux fast.

Dedicated

Test, drive, and port data and analytics workloads to Linux

Get a secure environment to prove out performance characteristics of POWER8 for Linux workloads.

Local

Integrate hybrid applications

Maximize performance and efficiency by ensuring systems are close to the data being analyzed.

Run your big data applications on servers built to handle the task

POWER8 bare metal servers provide the raw horsepower you demand for your processor-intensive and disk I/O-intensive workloads and help process data faster.

With four pre-configured options to choose from, you’ll be up and running the same day you order. Because POWER8 bare metal servers are based on OpenPOWER, it makes it easy to take the leap to a Linux-based hosted environment.
