Description

In 2014, IBM launched its POWER8 processor, and heralded the company’s shift to serve the Linux market and those customers who need to compute intensive workloads, such as big data, analytics and cloud.

In 2017, IBM will launch the next generation of its Power Processor: POWER9 and is banking on it to significantly project it into the Intel dominated data centre and High Performance Computing (HPC) market.

While the initial signs look good, we ask what new advantages can customers expect to achieve?
