POWER System Legacy:

IBM formerly had 2 midrange hardware lines: Servers from the AS/400 family, and the POWER-based servers from the RS/6000 family running AIX and Linux. In 2008, IBM merged the two lines of servers under “Power Systems”, with identical hardware and a choice of operating systems. In 2010, IBM announced new models with the new POWER7 microprocessor, and later in 2014, announced the POWER 8 series servers. IBM Power 9 processors began shipping 2016, based on 14nm architecture. There are 2 variants, SMT4 and SMT8.
