Learn how to bring the world’s most powerful AI into your applications and store, train and manage your data in the most secure cloud. Watson® services help to transform business, enhance competitive advantage and disrupt industries by unlocking potential within unstructured data.
IBM Power Systems is actually two platforms in one. A scale-up single-server approach to enable big business to grow on IBM AIX, or small and medium business to thrive in a secure partitioned IBM i server. Linux on Power provides an ideal low cost scale-out solution. Here are five things to know about how Watson services can be integrated into your Power Systems enterprise..
1. All of the values of IBM Power Systems remain.
Designed by IBM state-of-the art processors provide class leading throughput using CAPI enabled adapters, NVLINK attached GPUs, and integrated cryptography. IBM POWER9 extends the benefits of IBM POWER8 with even more power. Different processor options are available that are tuned for scale-out or scale-up workloads, which diverges from the one size fits all approach..
2. IBM i is made for Watson.
This is one time that the future of computing and IBM i can be used on the same client presentation chart. Several years ago IBM i development team took a look at the tools that are required to access cloud services and integrated them (as they are experts at integration) into the OS. Add this to the fact that IBM i is already used as an ideal platform in industries such as logistics, health services, and inventory control, which can greatly benefit from IBM Watson and all you need to do is get started.
3. AIX and Linux on Power.
Several UNIX workloads require hundreds of cores and threads to handle compute intensive and highly parallel workloads. The robust AIX kernel, enhanced file system, patch management and Linux OS extensions, make it an industrial-strength solution. AIX can be extended to reach Watson services through a familiar set of tools that your IT professionals already use and understand. Linux on Power helps lower the cost of ownership and lets you use leverage the reliability of Power Systems hardware without a complex migration.
4. A simple and structured API.
Watson services use the industry standard REST API. Using common HTTPS protocol means your server probably has the required ports open to use Watson. Repositories with sample code allow you to download already debugged solutions you can use today, or modify to better match your requirements.
5. It is here now.
There is no need to read a roadmap, visit the C-suite for approval, or take your tin cup to finance to get started. A no-charge trial service allows you to get going after a quick online registration to explore, test, implement, and integrate Watson services. That is the moment that you can ride the elevator to the top floor and demonstrate to your company that Watson is not just a television advertisement, but is available today and ready to extend the Power Systems solution that you already use. It offers a growing palette of ready-to-use services that are suited to your client's industry.
