More Image(s)

The Power 740 Express is a one- or two-socket server that sup-ports up to 16 POWER7 cores in a flexible 4U rack-optimized form factor. The Power 740 offers large memory capacity, out-standing performance of the POWER7 processor, PowerVM and workload-optimizing capabilities to enable companies to get the most out of their systems by increasing utilization and performance while helping to reduce infrastructure and energy costs. The new Power 740 Express Model 8205-E6C adds increased memory capacity and additional high bandwidth Generation 2 PCI-Express slots to provide even greater performance capabilities.

Power is the performance that deliversbusiness advantage

The leadership performance of the POWER7 processor makesit possible for applications to run faster with fewer processors,resulting in lower per core software licensing costs. In addition,a single system can now run more applications and reduce thenumber of required servers, lowering infrastructure costs.

Power is effortlessly balancing workload performance

POWER7 Intelligent Threads technology enables workload optimization by automatically switching between one, two and four execution threads per processor in order to optimize appli-cation throughput. In addition, Active Memoryâ„¢ Expansion is a new POWER7 technology that enables the effective maximum memory capacity to be much larger than the true physical memory without the complexity and cost of installing additional memory devices. These workload-optimising capabilities can improve application performance and ROI from the server.

Power is the ability to dynamicallyallocate resources

Take advantage of the scalability and capacity of the Power 740 Express by leveraging our industrial-strength PowerVM technology to fully utilize the system. PowerVM allows any individual LPAR to access the maximum amount of memory and CPU cores that are available on the server. PowerVM offers this capability to dynamically adjust system resources to partitions based on workload demands, enabling adynamic infrastructure that dramatically reduces server sprawl via massive consolidation of applications and servers. In addition, optional components, in PowerVM Editions, are designed to provide advanced virtualization technologies, resulting inefficiencies in resource utilization and cost savings.
