IBM announced the launch of the latest LinuxONE server, a Linux and Kubernetes-based platform, designed to support of workloads in the footprint of a single system.
IBM said the new IBM LinuxONE Servers come with capabilities that can cut clients’ energy consumption.
Consolidating Linux workloads on five IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 systems instead of running them on compared x86 servers under similar conditions can reduce energy consumption by 75 percent, space by 50 percent, and the CO2e footprint by over 850 metric tons annually, IBM said.
“Reducing data center energy consumption is a tangible way to decrease carbon footprint. Migrating to IBM LinuxONE is designed to help clients meet their scale and security goals,” said Marcel Mitran, IBM Fellow, CTO of Cloud Platform, IBM LinuxONE.
IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 is designed to enable clients to run workloads at sustained high density and increase capacity by turning on unused cores without increasing their energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions. Clients can track energy consumption with IBM Instana Observability on LinuxONE.
IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 server will be available globally on September 14, 2022, with entry and mid-range systems to follow in 1H 2023.
