The IBM 9179 Power 780 server (9179-MHB) utilizes the latest POWER7 processor technology designed to deliver unprecedented performance, scalability, reliability, and manageability for demanding commercial workloads.
The Power 780 enterprise server is designed to deliver outstanding price/performance, mainframe-inspired reliability and availability features, flexible capacity upgrades, and innovative virtualization technologies.
The innovative IBM Power 780 server with POWER7 processors is a symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), rack-mounted server. This modular-built system uses one to four enclosures; each enclosure is four EIA units tall and is housed in a 19-inch rack.
Each of the four system enclosures contains one powerful POWER7 processor card, comprised of two single-chip module processors.
Each of the POWER7 processors in this server has a 64-bit architecture and includes up to eight cores on a single-chip module (SCM), and contains 2 MB of L2 cache (256 KB per core) and 32 MB of L3 cache (4 MB per core).
Each POWER7 SCM processor is available at frequencies of 3.86 GHz with eight cores and 4.14 GHz with four cores.
This model server is available starting as low as four active cores and incrementing one core at a time through built-in Capacity on Demand (CoD) functions.
