With its 2010 launch of a new generation of Power Systems servers and blades based on the POWER7 processor architecture, IBM has extended its market lead and elevated system performance, throughput and energy efficiency to unprecedented levels that far outpace competitors. Most importantly, the new architecture also provides the foundation for the integrated PowerVM virtualization solution to deliver unrivaled scalability, flexibility and robustness. As a result, enterprise workloads deployed in PowerVM virtual machines (VMs) not only run faster on POWER7-based platforms, but they can also scale further and be optimized more efficiently.
