IBM Power S922 and IBM i
IBM i support is provided at a price-attractive P10 software tier even though the S922 has two sockets. However, there are limitations to the maximum size of the partition, and all I/O must be virtualized through VIOS. Up to four cores (real or virtual) per IBM i partition are supported. Multiple IBM i partitions can be created and run concurrently, and each individual partition can have up to four cores
IBM i QPRCRFEAT values are the same numeric value as the processor feature code. IBM i does not support the 4-core processor feature EP16
The 8-core processor (#EP18, QPRCRFEAT EP18) is IBM i SW tier P10.
The 10-core processor (#EP19, QPRCRFEAT EP19) is IBM i SW tier P10.
The Power9 S922 model 9009-22A pricing depends on the configuration of the server. Each S922 9009-22A system comes custom configured based on customer requirements, including number of active cores and processers, disk drives and SSD, memory, storage, licensed IBM programs, and number of concurrent users.
