Introduced in April 2022, the IBM z16 multi frame has helped transform industries with real-time AI inferencing at scale and quantum-safe cryptography. IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4, launched in September 2022, features capabilities that can reduce both energy consumption and data center floor space while delivering the scale, performance and security that clients need. The new single frame and rack mount configurations expand client infrastructure choices and help bring these benefits to data center environments where space, sustainability and standardization are paramount.
"IBM remains at the forefront of innovation to help clients weather storms generated by an ever-changing market," said Ross Mauri, General Manager, IBM zSystems and LinuxONE. "We're protecting clients' investments in existing infrastructure while helping them to innovate with AI and quantum-safe technologies. These new options let companies of all sizes seamlessly co-locate IBM z16 and LinuxONE Rockhopper 4 with distributed infrastructure, bringing exciting capabilities to those environments."
Designed for today's changing IT environment to enable new use cases
Organizations in every industry are balancing an increasing number of challenges to deliver integrated digital services. According to a recent IBM Transformation Index report, among those surveyed, security, managing complex environments and regulatory compliance were cited as challenges to integrating workloads in a hybrid cloud. These challenges can be compounded by more stringent environmental regulations and continuously rising costs.
"We have seen immense value from utilizing the IBM z16 platform in a hybrid cloud environment," said Bo Gebbie, president, Evolving Solutions. "Leveraging these very secure systems for high volume transactional workloads, combined with cloud-native technologies, has enabled greater levels of agility and cost optimization for both our clients' businesses and our own."
The new IBM z16 and LinuxONE 4 offerings are built for the modern data center to help optimize flexibility and sustainability, with capabilities for partition-level power monitoring and additional environmental metrics. For example, consolidating Linux workloads on an IBM LinuxONE Rockhopper 4 instead of running them on compared x86 servers with similar conditions and location can reduce energy consumption by 75 percent and space by 67 percent.1 These new configurations are engineered to deliver the same hallmark IBM security and transaction processing at scale.
Designed and tested to the same internal qualifications as the IBM z16 high availability portfolio2, the new rack-optimized footprint is designed for use with client-owned, standard 19-inch racks and power distribution units. This new footprint opens opportunities to include systems in distributed environments with other servers, storage, SAN and switches in one rack, designed to optimize both co-location and latency for complex computing, such as training AI models.
IBM is a leading global hybrid cloud and AI, and business services provider, helping clients in more than 175 countries capitalize on insights from their data, streamline business processes, reduce costs and gain the competitive edge in their industries. Nearly 3,800 government and corporate entities in critical infrastructure areas such as financial services, telecommunications and healthcare rely on IBM's hybrid cloud platform and Red Hat OpenShift to affect their digital transformations quickly, efficiently, and securely. IBM's breakthrough innovations in AI, quantum computing, industry-specific cloud solutions and business services deliver open and flexible options to our clients. All of this is backed by IBM's legendary commitment to trust, transparency, responsibility, inclusivity, and service.

"TYAN's server platforms powered by 4th Gen AMD EPYC processor enable IT organizations to achieve high performance while remaining cost-effective and contributing to environmental sustainability."
Accelerate real workload performance for modern AI and HPC applications
Leveraging 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors' support for high performance DDR5 memory and fast PCIe® Gen 5 I/O, TYAN's HPC platforms enable the high performance demands of today's AI and machine learning applications. The Transport HX TN85-B8261 is a 2U dual-socket server that is equipped with 24 DDR5 RDIMM slots and eight 2.5-inch hot-swap NVMe U.2 tool-less drive trays. The platform supports up to four double-wide GPU cards and two half-height PCIe 5.0 x16 slots, which are designed to enhance HPC and deep learning performance.
The Transport HX FT65T-B8050 is a rack-convertible pedestal server platform featuring a single AMD EYPC 9004 Series processor, eight DDR5 RDIMM slots, eight 3.5" SATA and two 2.5" NVMe U.2 hot-swap, tool-less drive trays. The FT65T-B8050 supports up to two double-wide PCIe 5.0 x16 professional GPU cards, along with two additional high-speed networking adapters that are ideal for desk-side AI workbench workloads.
Unparalleled Performance AM5 platform and multi-node servers to power the cloud
The Tomcat CX S8016 is an AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Processor-based server motherboard designed with an onboard BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) for CSP deployment in micro-ATX form factor (9.6" x 9.6"). The motherboard is purpose-built for the new AMD socket AM5 platform, featuring four DDR5 UDIMM slots, one PCIe 5.0 x16 slot, two NVMe M.2 slots and two onboard GbE ports.

Zesty, a pioneer in dynamic cloud infrastructure solutions, announced that it has partnered with skyPurple Cloud, the public cloud operations specialists for enterprises. With Zesty, skyPurple Cloud's customers have already reduced their average monthly EC2 Linux On-Demand costs by 44% on AWS.
While cloud spend continues to increase, growth has reportedly slowed as companies remain cautious during economic uncertainty. In order to reduce cloud costs, many organizations depend on developers to constantly monitor and manage EC2 resources and cloud spend manually rather than overprovision and commit to a long-term discount plan.
skyPurple Cloud empowers businesses with support solutions for public cloud implementation. As part of its tailor-made approach, skyPurple Cloud customers employ Zesty's technology to optimally scale and automate cloud operations to drive sustainable growth and cut costs. Within the first month of implementation, skyPurple Cloud customers noticed a significant increase in service quotas for Amazon EC2 instances and saved developers considerable time and money by automatically handling quota requests on customers' behalf.
"Particularly during such a challenging time for so many, skyPurple Cloud understands how crucial it is for businesses to maintain performance and reduce costs," said Maxim Melamedov, CEO and co-founder of Zesty. "Companies are no longer able to ignore overspending and settle for suboptimal rates for their cloud resources. EC2 instances quickly become very expensive to run and companies must ensure that more of their workloads are covered by discount programs that will dramatically push down this cost premium. We're thrilled that skyPurple Cloud is helping its customers to stay cost-efficient by implementing Zesty."
"skyPurple Cloud plays a key role on the path to achieve cloud optimisation in the UK market," said Lucia Meyassed, Global Partner Manager Team Lead at Zesty. "We're excited to see its customers already saving a great deal in the cloud with Zesty and look forward to enabling even more UK-based organisations to maximize their cloud savings potential."
"At skyPurple Cloud, we know the substantial value automation tools hold for companies when it comes to optimally managing cloud infrastructure and the costs that come with it," said Roy Long, founder of skyPurple Cloud. "Zesty is the gift these companies have been waiting for – delivering cost savings in just a few days and significantly decreasing monthly AWS bills."
