1."Based on an IBM customer's data, 30 x86 servers (300 cores total) can be consolidated into 1 IBM LinuxONE Rockhopper II server (15 cores total), yielding a 20:1 core consolidation ratio and 55% lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) over 5 years."
2.Source: "Scale-out to 2 million Docker containers in a single z14 system, no application server farms necessary" (applies to IBM LinuxONE Emperor II) Performance result is extrapolated from IBM internal tests running in a z14 LPAR with 10 dedicated IFLs and 16 GB memory 1000 BusyBox Docker containers with ApacheHTTP. Results may vary. Operating system was SLES 12 SP2 (SMT mode). Docker 1.12 was used.
3."Based on an IBM customer's data, 42 x86 servers (1,512 cores total) can be consolidated into 2 IBM LinuxONE Emperor II servers (135cores total), yielding an 11:1 core consolidation ratio and 41% lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) over 5 years."
