Hello,

I am looking for any published benchmark data for IBM Power7 servers running AIX.  This could include their entry models (710, 720, 730, 740), Midrange models (750, 770), High Performance computing model (755), and Enterprise models (780, 795), or blades (BladeCenter PS700, PS701, PS702).

I am trying to see how this platform compares to other UNIX servers from a hardware performance perspective.  Links to any benchmark data would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.

Sorry, the Intel Link is wrong (It's an economic performance report).

Searching the right one ...

wmp,

thank you this is great!  I have a separate question for HP Tukwila servers that you may be able to also answer.  

Is the IBM report a comprehensive report of all independent benchmarks?  Or can you think of any others that may be out there?  I need to leave the office for a while but will check in later tonight or tomorrow and close the question.  Thanks so much!!

The IBM reports cover the results of many important benchmark tests - but afaik all these tests have been run by IBM themselves, not by independent institutions.

Always consult TPC ("Transaction Processing Performance Council") for quasi independent studies:

http://www.tpc.org/

They have gazillions of reports which should cover everything you ever wanted to know of benchmark results.

Thank you for all of the great information on IBM P7.  Is there a lot more data for this than the HP Tukwila servers I ask in my other questions?
