    This IBM Redpaper publication is a comprehensive guide that covers the IBM Power S1012

    (9028-21B) which is an entry level server in the IBM Power10 Scale Out Server line. Like the

    other Power10 Scale Out Servers, the Power S1012 uses IBM Power10 processor-based

    technology and supports IBM AIX®, IBM i, and Linux (including Red Hat OpenShift).

    The Power S1012 is especially suited for use in small IBM i environments, small database

    environments and as an Edge computing device running various AI workloads. While the Power

    S1012 is designed as an entry level system, it still retains the benefits provided by the IBM

    Power10 chip for reliability, security and enhanced performance.

    One unique feature of the Power S1012 is the support of industry standard DIMMs in its

    memory configuration. In addition, the system supports up to four internal NVMe drives for

    internal storage and four PCIe Gen5 PCIe slots to provide high performance connections to

    your users and other data sources.

    This publication is intended for the following professionals who want to acquire a better

    understanding of IBM Power server products:

    – IBM Power customers

    – Sales and marketing professionals

    – Technical support professionals

    – IBM Business Partners

    – Independent software vendors (ISVs)

    This paper is designed to complement the other IBM Redbooks publications describing the

    Power10 server line. This information will also be integrated into the existing IBM Power

    S1014, S1022s, S1022, and S1024 Technical Overview and Introduction, REDP-5675.
