IBM has unveiled the next generation of its LinuxONE server, which uses the Telum processor found in the System Z mainframe, promising both scale-out and scale-up performance and much lower power use.


The new LinuxOne Emperor 4 system comes in a full-sized rack around the size of a standard server cabinet. It supports 32 IBM Telum processors with a total of 200 cores and features up to 40TB of Redundant Array of Independent Memory, a form of memory with even more advanced error correction than ECC memory.


The full-size LinuxONE Emperor 4 is generally available globally on September 14, with entry and mid-range systems to follow in the first half of 2023. They are available on both consumption-based pricing models as well as outright purchase.
