CRN’s 2022 Products Of The Year
CRN staff compiled the top partner-friendly products that launched over the past year, then turned to solution providers to choose the winners.
IBM POWER S1024
IBM’s Power S1024 server is designed for business-critical workloads in a multi-cloud world where data must be secure and accessible from anywhere in the network. The two-socket 4U server, which runs IBM AIX, IBM i or Linux, features transparent memory encryption that secures data when in transit between storage and the processor, a capability built in at the silicon level. Because the Power10 processor at the heart of the Power S1024 has double the cores of its predecessor, workloads can be consolidated on fewer systems, reducing software licensing, electrical and cooling costs. The IBM Power S1024 was the overall winner in this category and received the highest survey score in customer need.
