Our organization ran comparison tests to determine whether the Dell EMC Poweredge or Lenovo Thinksystem rack servers were the better fit for us. We ultimately decided to go with Dell EMC Poweredge. This solution offers users an AI-powered system that provides not only cutting-edge cyber security, but also in-depth analytic insight and notifications that alert administrators to any problem that may arise. The AI scans whatever is being downloaded into the system and identifies its nature before allowing it in. This provides a layer of defense that reduces the possibility of malware or viruses slipping by due to human error. It also spots ongoing issues that may exist within the framework of the system. This AI identifies the problems that plague the system and sends users alerts that they can follow up on. Instead of having to devote resources to finding issues, Dell EMC Poweredge will do it for you and free up resources to solve the problems before they become worse.
Lenovo Thinksystem rack servers lack the kind of AI augmented security and notifications that Dell EMC Poweredge offers. There is no option for the server to scan for issues or create notifications if they arise. It is a very traditional sort of server that is not on the cutting edge as far as cyber security is concerned. If you choose to use it, you will have to have dedicated teams to keep an eye out for security issues.
Dell EMC Poweredge provides organizations that employ it with excellent documentation that makes the product easy to use. Every system option comes with an explanation as to what it is and how to employ it. This shows that Dell EMC Poweredge considered users’ ease of use when creating this product.
Lenovo Thinksystem rack servers do offer a certain ease of use. While certain processes such as upgrading the system may be relatively easy to do, there is no documentation offering a breakdown of the system options. This lack of explanation means that time and resources will have to be devoted to learning the ins and outs of the system.
Both Dell EMC Poweredge and Lenovo Thinksystem rack servers offer products that can do the jobs that they are needed for. However, Dell’s AI security analytics and thorough documentation make it by far the more effective product.
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.
