The IBM System p5™ 590 server is designed to deliver outstanding performance at a price-point that will transform IT economics. Equipped with advanced 64-bit IBM POWER5+™ processor cores in up to 32-core symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) configurations, this server is built to provide the processing power for a wide range of complex, mission-critical applications with demanding processing requirements—from database services to enterprise resource planning (ERP) and transaction processing.

With advanced System p™ virtualization technologies such as Advanced POWER™ Virtualization1 standard plus Capacity on Demand (CoD) options, the p5-590 can scale rapidly and seamlessly to address changing needs, making it an excellent server platform for server consolidation. It can execute the IBM AIX 5L™ and Linux operating systems simultaneously, providing the flexibility to run the applications businesses need to achieve their goals. And, extensive mainframe-inspired reliability, availability and serviceability features can help ensure that the system will be ready for business, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
