IBM Unveils New Power7 Systems for the Smarter Planet

by Darryl K. Taft
IBM launched a set of new Power7 systems that deliver up to four times the energy efficiency and twice the performance of the previous generation of Power systems and some of the current crop of competing systems. The new Power7 systems are designed to manage the most demanding emerging applications, ranging from smart electrical grids to real-time analytics for financial markets. The new systems incorporate a number of unique technologies for the specialized demands of new applications and services that rely on processing an enormous number of concurrent transactions and data while analyzing that information in real-time.
