Power Systems Virtual Servers

Deploy IBM Power Systems Virtual Server to Meet Your Specific Business Needs

Quickly Extend Your Power IT Resources onto IBM Power Systems Virtual Servers on IBM Cloud.


Most IT organizations deal with complex and siloed infrastructure that requires large teams of highly skilled specialists to keep them up and running. These legacy environments force teams to spend a disproportionate amount of time tending to infrastructure and less on applications and services.

Suppose you think that your infrastructure cannot rapidly modernize and economically scale. In that case, IBM has a new offering in the form of Power systems virtual server, specifically for power system clients to address all your cloud challenges.

IBM Power Systems clients who have typically relied upon on-premises-only infrastructure can now quickly and economically extend their Power IT resources into the cloud. IBM Power Systems Virtual Servers allow clients to quickly move and extend their Power IT resources onto IBM Power Systems Virtual Servers into the IBM Cloud. Power Systems Virtual Server projects deliver flexible compute capacity for Power Systems workloads. Power Systems Virtual Server enables flexible compute capacity for Power System workloads
