Overall Satisfaction with IBM Power

The IBM Power System S924 was deployed to multiple client locations for their on site and cloud environment needs. It was utilized in locations that needed dedicated on site only server as well as those that utilized a cloud/VM/Citrix environment for remote work. It was the center of our recommended deployment package for our client base.
  • Scalability
  • Performance
  • Resource Sharing
  • Scalability is time consuming.
  • Any migration work is complicated and step intensive.
  • Documentation as a whole needs a rework.
  • Great Security implimentation
  • Scalability
  • Costly
In my experience the IBM Clod Bare metal servers always give better overall performance, but lack the functionality for the cloud hybridization that the IBM Power System S924 offers. The 922 being in the same wheel house at a slightly lower price is an alternative if you are looking for the same functionality with slightly lower performance.

Do you think IBM Power servers delivers good value for the price?

The IBM Power System S924 is great when utilized for larger scale companies managing the needs of a large employee base. Though it is not a fast process it's scalability allows it to purely shine in those scenarios. If the company is on the smaller side then the IBM Power System S924 is far from a good fit as you will be doing a lot of legwork for little reward.
