Power Systems TM – The first generation of systems built for a smarter planet. POWER7 systems represent a generational shift that delivers a new definition of performance and value.

The first generation of systems built for a smarter planet.
From the chip and virtualization capabilities, all the way through the operation systems, these new systems are optimized from the ground up with IBM middleware for a step change in performance, energy efficiency and new computing capabilities.

Consider these upgraded features:
Virtualization without limits
Workload optimization
Energy reduction
Resiliency without downtime
Management with automation

A New Definition of Performance: IBM POWER7 Systems
Perhaps that’s why more than 2,000 companies have migrated their workloads to IBM over the last 4 years.
