IBM i 9009-42A Power9 S924: iSeries Systems Upgrades EP1E EP1F EP1G
"The new S924 - Highest security and reliability now Cloud enabled with integrated Virtualization capabilities."
The POWER9 scale-out family is the first set of entry servers that comes completely cloud enabled out of the box with integrated PowerVM Enterprise capabilities. Additionally, on-chip analytics and algorithms help clients run their workloads at an optimized processor frequency for performance and throughput. In combination with the DDR4 memory footprint of 4 TB, IBM provides systems that are unmatched by the competition in terms of memory scaling as well as the core to memory ratio needed for data-centric and in-memory workloads. Live Partition Mobility capabilities are built in, to cloud-enable your POWER9 infrastructure and help you migrate from previous Power Systems. Every new S924 also has the option of a temporary PowerVM license for your old server to support a seamless move of workloads to POWER9. The Power System S924 server has built-in security that can help you to be ready for current and future security threats.
