IT “infrastructure matters in the new era of computing,” IBM managers argued in the formal launching of its Power Systems servers based on its Power8 processor, taking aim at big data applications and cloud computing.

IBM engineers also announced a Power8 interface advance designed to put accelerators closer to the processor. IBM is touting the Power Systems platform as the first to specifically address big data analytics and cloud computing economics.

Doug Balog, general manager of IBM’s Power Systems division, said the company has invested $1 billion over the last year in Linux-based Power Systems development to ease, among other things, the porting of applications from X86 to Power platforms. The Power8 systems are the culmination of three years and $2.4 billion in investments that IBM has made in chip design and manufacturing, systems design, and system software development.
