IBM Introduces Next Generation IBM Power Server for Hybrid Cloud

IBM is introducing the new IBM Power E1080 server, the first in a new family of servers based on the new IBM Power10 processor, designed specifically for hybrid cloud environments.

The IBM Power10-equipped E1080 server is engineered to be one of the most secured server platforms and is designed to help clients operate a secured, frictionless hybrid cloud experience across their entire IT infrastructure, according to the vendor.

“When we were designing the E1080, we had to be cognizant of how the pandemic was changing not only consumer behavior but also our customer's behavior and needs from their IT infrastructure," said Dylan Boday, VP of product management for AI and hybrid cloud. "The E1080 is IBM’s first system designed from the silicon up for hybrid cloud environments, a system tailor-built to serve as the foundation for our vision of a dynamic and secure, frictionless hybrid cloud experience."

The new IBM E1080 was designed to introduce several key features including:

  • Enhancements for hybrid cloud such as Red Hat software including Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Enterprise Linux
  • New hardware-driven performance improvements
  • New security tools designed for hybrid cloud
  • A robust ecosystem of ISVs, Business Partners, and supportto broaden the capabilities of the IBM Power E1080 and how customers can build their hybrid cloud environment,

IBM is also introducing Power Expert Care, which offers a tiered approach to service including Advanced and Premium Expert Care tiers.

The simple service tiers and pricing facilitate straightforward support options for the IBM Power E1080 server, and additional add-ons such as hardware and software system health checks and regular security updates are designed to ensure that the systems stay protected against the latest cybersecurity threats, while also providing software and hardware coherence and higher systems availability.
