Power System E870

Scalable enterprise server for critical applications, with open innovation for private clouds

The emerging measures of IT performance focus on agility to enable growth and respond to change, while effectively managing risk and resources. Expectations continue to rise for increased service levels and secure application access, as data explodes and budgets are squeezed. At the same time, more complex application architectures and the current rate of change create unforeseen challenges that strain even the most talented IT teams in the industry.
