Linux Server Hardware IBM POWER9 Systems
Linux server hardware running on IBM POWER9 can deliver over twice the performance per core compared to industry leading x86 server brands, which reduces licensing costs and main reason it is the lowest total cost of ownership and makes it the best Linux server.
In comparison to x86 servers, IBM Power9 Linux server hardware provide 2x more cores, 3.4x better core performance, 4x more threads, 33% more memory (up to 4TB), 2.4x better price performance, 2x data bandwidth, 5.6X the CPU-GPU bandwidth, a smaller foot print, have better availability (less than 2 minutes of unplanned downtime per year) and have lower energy consumption.
Performance benchmarks prove IBM Power9 Linux servers are best for Red Hat. Ubuntu and SUSE applications. IBM Power9 Linux servers have many benchmark test results proving it is the best Linux server for Ubuntu Server, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and IBM Red Hat Enterprise Linux, including application server, database server, SAP server, analytics server, business intelligence server, web server, media server, HCI, private cloud server and other x86 workloads.
