DATA CRUSHING POWER – WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
IBM has long been a leader in super computer technology. In the trickle down effect this remarkable technology is now available to businesses of all sizes, and is enabling them to begin their destined journey to cognitive computing.
Crushing business data.
Right out of the box the IBM Power System components are stacked with ready to use data crushing capabilities.
Top of the stack is data security software. Next down is amazing artificial intelligence software ready to be assigned to the unique processes of a business. Bottom of the stack is the revolutionary new server hardware.
The data needs of a business now, and its vision for the future, will determine which hardware variant suits best. All variants come with PowerVM Enterprise capabilities, and a memory footprint of up to 4 tera bytes.
Already onboard are integrated private, public, and hybrid cloud capabilities that include innovative self-analysis and self-healing to ensure full performance metrics are maintained. All without the need for human intervention.
The bandwidth into a Power9 chip is near 1 tera byte per second, with an onboard chip bandwidth of 7 tera bytes per second. There are 8 billion transistors, 17 layers, and 24 billion connections.
The premise behind artificial intelligence software is decidedly simple, it enables computers to learn from experiences, very similar to how humans learn and store past experiences with neural connections, but computers store past experiences as data.
Mindful that business technology users are not data scientists, those without any deep learning expertise at all are expertly empowered to create artificial intelligence solutions with the software package called PowerAI Vision.
The IBM artificial intelligence software team has coded in the ability for easy and rapid deployment, so increased team productivity can be achieved faster than ever.
Lower ownership cost.
Significant technology jumps in both performance and reliability commonly come with an expected jump in cost. This is the first industry expectation that IBM has surprised the market with. Entry to the future of cognitive computing comes with a total cost of ownership typically ranging from 50% to 70% lower.
The technology is typically 27% less expensive to run than the cloud, and built-in cloud enabling software ensures applications are 50% faster to deploy, versus traditional infrastructure.
99.999% reliable platform.
The Power System has been purpose built by IBM engineers for infrastructure and applications that are mission critical. This can-not-fail design can achieve up to an astonishing level of 99.999% uptime.
The fault tolerant design features the ability to survive double memory failures, selective memory monitoring, redundant memory, the capability to continue high speed data computations up to the failure of 3 chips on the memory board, and extended error handling.
