IBM Power9 S922 9009-22A EP16 4-Core 3.8 GHz Processor d
AIX rPerf: SMT8 = 89.8, SMT4 = 71.2, SMT = 51.6, ST = 30.4
Memory: 16-2048 GB
Note: IBM i OS400 is not supported on the 9009-22A EP16 4-Core. For IBM i workloads, customers must purchase a 9009-22A EP18 or EP19 processor, which are both in a P10 software tier, or a 9009-22G EP58, EP59 or EP5B processor, which are also all in a P10 software tier. All IBM Power9 servers that support IBM i OS400 requires I/O to be virtualized through VIOS and each LPAR can have maximum of four cores dedicated. Other Power9 processor features for other OS types do not have this limitation.

The 9009-22A S922 with EP16 4-core processor has an IBM reported rPerf of 89.8 and is not available in a 2 processor configuration.

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 SSDmemory, storage, licensed IBM programs, and number of concurrent users. For MES System Upgrades, please provide your current iSeries System Model and Serial Number.
