S914 IBM Power System server
The next generation of Power Systems servers with POWER9 technology is built with innovations that can help deliver security and reliability for the data-intensive workloads of today’s enterprises. POWER9 technology is designed from the ground up for data-intensive workloads like databases and analytics.
Changes in the memory subsystem and the use of industry standard memory DIMMs take POWER9 technology to the next level by superseding a number of existing price/performance offerings. Designed to run commercial, cognitive, and database workloads, POWER9 technology provides a highly competitive server platform. Client references indicate POWER servers help provide a robust and secure backbone for their IT infrastructure. More companies are using POWER technology in their IT infrastructure down from the shop level to large data center deployments.
The Power S914 server by default has its Power Management mode set to Dynamic Performance. This mode can dynamically optimizes the processor frequency at any given time based on CPU utilization and operating environmental conditions. For a description of this feature and other power management options available for this server, see the IBM EnergyScale for POWER9 Processor-Based Systems
S914 Technical Specifications
IBM Power System server
The POWER9 scale-out family is the first set of entry servers that comes completely cloud-enabled out of the box with integrated PowerVM Enterprise capabilities. Additionally, on-chip analytics and algorithms help clients run their workloads at an optimized processor frequency for performance and throughput. Live Partition Mobility capabilities are built in, to cloud-enable your POWER9 infrastructure and help you migrate from previous Power Systems. Every new S914 also has the option of a temporary PowerVM license for your old server to support a seamless move of workloads to POWER9. The new server has built-in security that can help you to be ready for current and future security threats.
The Power S914 server supports one-processor sockets, offering 4-core typical 2.3 to 3.8 GHz (max), or 6-core typical 2.3 to 3.8 GHz (max) or 8-core typical 2.8 to 3.8 GHz (max) POWER9 processor-based configurations in a 19-inch rack-mount, 4U (EIA units) drawer or desk-side configuration. All the cores are active. The server supports a maximum of 16 DDR4 DIMM slots. Memory features supported are 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB and run at speeds of 2133, 2400, and 2666 Mbps, allowing for a maximum system memory of 1024 GB.
