I am a Chairman and CEO Advisor at a small tech services company.
I am currently researching rack servers for my company.
Which product do you prefer: Intel Server System or IBM Power Systems? Which product is better in your opinion and why?
Thank you for your help.
IBM Power Systems vs Dell PowerEdge Rack Server
IBM Power Systems is a RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer) system that contains 8 threads or over per core. This processor performs super-fast due to the RISC algorithm technology than any other Intel-based hardware (e.g., Dell, HPE, Cisco).
In Intel, there are only 2 or 4 threads per core and it performs according to CISC (Complex Instruction Set Computer). IBM Power system is a sustainable, reliable and obviously costly solution compared to any other Intel-based solution. Generally, IBM Power system is used in mission-critical systems.

IBM Power comes with virtualization integrated (PowerVM), highly optimized (practically with no performance impact) - no need for VMWare, HyperV etc.
For database it is the recomended platform - even is Hana, Oracle (best combination with AIX) or DB2 (DB2 for me is the most autonomous database that you can have).
The downside of IBM Power could be the lack of support for Windows and the initial cost.
