Why LinuxONE Rockhopper II

Deliver trusted experiences with a scalable, secure platform

IBM® LinuxONE® meets the demand of your business, even at peaks. Consolidate existing databases and develop new data servers, centrally managing data at scale without sharding to enable high performance and deliver a single version of the truth. Run 240 concurrent MongoDB databases executing a total of 58 billion database transactions per day on a single Rockhopper II™ server. Leverage data in place to drive insight and business value.

Build a cyber defense with encryption and isolation

Stay out of the data breach headlines, simplify compliance and protect your data from internal and external threats. Rockhopper II can encrypt 100 percent of your application, cloud service and database data at rest or in-flight. IBM Secure Service Container can then deliver a secure computing environment for containerized applications. Combined with protected crypto keys and workload isolation engineered for EAL5+ certification, LinuxONE is the industry's most secure Linux platform.

Gain efficiency with the cloud platform for multi-cloud IT

Achieve operational excellence by maximizing resource utilization and lowering costs. Run hundreds of workloads for dozens of clients in a fully virtualized shared resource platform. Now, you can accelerate delivery of your new cloud-native applications through IBM Cloud Private which integrates Kubernetes orchestration.

Lower TCO and sized to fit any cloud data center

Achieve lower total cost of ownership and faster ROI with up to 65 percent cost savings over x86. And the new Rockhopper II's industry-standard 19-inch rack uses 40 percent less space than the previous Rockhopper while delivering up to 60 percent more Linux capacity. The configurable frame offers 16U of flexibility to populate with your choice of server, switch, or storage elements.
