I am working for a company that sells the Power9 solutions to the client

Pros

  • Power9 Servers give the flexibility to add more workload with less cores

  • Power9 has a 99.999% uptime and has the RAS features which cannot be matched by any platform in the market
  • Power VM has no vulnerability since 2003
  • AIX is the operating system with minimum vulnerability compared to any other operating system

Cons

  • A Robust patching solution is required
  • Shared processor pool for the production workload for SAP HANA
  • Better ROI when looking at database workload
  • Ease of management
Power 9 servers give better flexibility, reduces the software requirement, ease of management, minimum downtime
Power9 Servers are the best fit for the Oracle/DB2 Database workload.
Power9 is the best fit for any ERP workload like SAP / SAP HANA / Oracle ERP. Power9 is best suited for mission critical application
