Security, Sustainability, and Speed: Introducing the IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4
“The new IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 provides a sustainable, scalable, security-rich infrastructure to protect data at scale, lower energy usage, and prepare data centers for the future,” said Kara Todd, director of IBM LinuxONE. “We appreciate SUSE’s continued support and exploitation of the strengths of the IBM LinuxONE platform.”
SECURITY IS THE BACKBONEThe bad actors of today are actively collecting sensitive, long-lifetime data for decryption later when quantum computers are powerful enough to decrypt it. IBM built the LinuxONE Emperor 4 to protect not only today’s data but also guard against the quantum computing based attacks that are coming.
Consider this: LinuxONE Emperor 4 provides the quantum-safe encryption and key encapsulation needed to integrate quantum-safe cryptography alongside existing cryptographic methods for a dual scheme approach as recommended by NIST. SUSE’s secure software supply chain can secure, document and trace source code, the SUSE build environment and update mechanisms of a specific workload using SUSE products over its full lifecycle. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server has achieved Common Criteria EAL4+ and FIPS 140-2/3 certifications that demonstrate our software supply chain security also recommended by NIST.
SUSTAINABILITY FOR OUR FUTUREThe other “S” word that is widely keeping CIOs up at night is sustainability. The new IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4, can replace hundreds of x86 servers with a single high-performance system that uses up to 75% less energy. All workloads will benefit from the sustainability and compliance that the LinuxONE Emperor 4 server provides—including workloads to platforms like Oracle Database, IBM MQ and SUSE Rancher.
SPEED FOR TODAY … AND TOMORROWThe third “S” word heard frequently is speed. The IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 can process up to 3.5 million inference requests per second with 1ms response time. With its low latency and scalable capacity, it’s perfect for any workload designed for sensitive environments such as medical, military and industrial systems.
SUSE built SLES to be adaptable to any environment, while being optimized for performance, security, reliability and resilience. Coupling the two sets you up for today ... and tomorrow.
