Abstract

This IBM® Redpaper™ publication is a comprehensive guide that covers the IBM Power System H922 (9223-22S), and IBM Power System H924 (9223-42S) servers that support memory-intensive workloads, such as SAP HANA, and deliver superior price and performance for mission-critical applications in IBM AIX®, IBM i, and Linux® operating systems. The goal of this paper is to provide a hardware architecture analysis and highlight the changes, new technologies, and major features that are being introduced in these systems’ 2020 release, such as the following examples:


  • Availability of new IBM POWER9™ processor configurations for the number of cores per socket.
  • More performance by using industry-leading IBM Peripheral Component Interconnect® Express (PCIe) Gen4 slots.
  • Enhanced internal disk configuration options, with up to 14 NVMe adapters (four U.2 NVMe plus up to 10 PCIe add-in cards).
  • Twice as fast back-end I/O enables seamless maximum speed and throughput between on-premises and multiple public cloud infrastructures with high availability (HA).

This publication is for professionals who want to acquire a better understanding of IBM Power Systems products. The intended audience includes the following roles:


  • Clients
