IBM Power9 Server

IBM Power9 Server is a series of high-end enterprise-level servers and part of the company’s Power Systems line. Power9 is designed to deliver high-performance computing (HPC), speed and bandwidth for heavy workloads.

Power9 applications include in-memory databases, analytics, cloud environments and AI, particularly deep learning and machine learning. Power9 Servers are optimized for popular AI frameworks, including:

  • TensorFlow: Google’s open source software library for numerical computation through data flow graphs
  • Chainer: a neural network framework
  • Caffe: a deep learning framework

While specifics vary among models, Power9 Server features may include:

  • Power9 processor
  • PowerVM, the Power Systems hypervisor, for dynamic scaling of compute resources and memory on demand
  • PCI-Express 4.0
  • OpenCAPI, a high-speed processor standard
  • Chip-level security
  • Lower software and hardware maintenance costs
  • NVLink 2.0, a wire-based communications link by Nvidia, for faster data transport between the CPU and GPU
  • Intelligent storage controllers
  • Regulated power supplies
  • Distributed system clocks that activate if the main system clock fails
