IBM has announced Power servers built on an open server standard that enable data centres to manage big data much faster.

Based upon the Openpower Foundation standard, the servers are powered by IBM Power 8 processors, each of which measures one square inch and has more than four billion transistors and more than 11 miles of copper circuit traces.

Designed for what the firm calls “an era of big data”, the IBM Power 8 servers are built from the ground up to deal with “the explosion of data generated each day”, IBM said.

IBM SVP of the systems and technology group Tom Rosamilia said, “This is the first truly disruptive advancement in high-end server technology in decades, with radical technology changes and the full support of an open server ecosystem that will lead our clients into this world of massive data volumes and complexity.
