IBM unveils Latest Microprocessor for Big Data
FREMONT, CA: IBM launches high-end system servers called Power8 that are far more efficient at analyzing data.
Power8 is the name given to the latest family of new microprocessors and lineup of servers that can cope well for handling Big Data.
The technology services provider is hopeful that the servers structured for large-scale computing, will benefit clients by streamlining new types of social and mobile computing and mass amounts of data.
"For IBM customers in particular the POWER8 represents a generational jump forward so far as overall performance and system capacity goes. POWER8 should help IBM move forward in this very cloud-centric, analytic path that it has been working on,” said Charles King, an analyst at Pund-IT.
For servers to be adaptable to different needs, IBM has released the data specifications for its POWER8 processor to the OpenPOWER foundation, offering the development community solutions to deliver new system designs based on POWER8.
