The IBM POWER6 processor-based System p™ 570 mid-range server delivers outstanding price/performance, mainframe-inspired reliability and availability features, flexible capacity upgrades and innovative virtualization technologies. This powerful 19-inch rack-mount system, which can handle up to 16 POWER6 cores, can be used for database and application serving, as well as server consolidation. The modular p570 is designed to continue the tradition of its predecessor, the IBM POWER5+™ processor-based System p5™ 570 server, for resource optimization, secure and dependable performance and the flexibility to change with business needs. Clients have the ability to upgrade their current p5-570 servers and know that their investment in IBM Power Architecture™ technology has again been rewarded.

The p570 is the first server designed with POWER6 processors, resulting in performance and price/performance advantages while ushering in a new era in the virtualization and availability of UNIX® and Linux® data centers. POWER6 processors can run 64-bit applications, while concurrently supporting 32-bit applications to enhance flexibility. They feature simultaneous multithreading,1 allowing two application “threads” to be run at the same time, which can significantly reduce the time to complete tasks.

The p570 system is more than an evolution of technology wrapped into a familiar package; it is the result of “thinking outside the box.” IBM’s modular symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) architecture means that the system is constructed using 4-core building blocks. This design allows clients to start with what they need and grow by adding additional building blocks, all without disruption to the base system.2 Optional Capacity on Demand features allow the activation of dormant processor power for times as short as one minute. Clients may start small and grow with systems designed for continuous application availability.
