POWER8 is the first processor designed for Big Data, Analytics and Cloud.
There are plenty of reasons why Power Systems are the top choice of clients for scalable systems and the market place data proves it. IBM is the 8-socket and above revenue leader, according to IDC, and used by 10 of the top 10 banks, 10 of the top 10 telcos, 8 of the top 10 Insurers, and 8 of the top 10 retailers. When you add in the bold, unprecedented OpenPOWER initiative, the path for even greater collaborative innovation is unlimited.
