x86 Servers

x86 servers are cost-efficient and can scale as your business grows. ProActive takes a comprehensive approach to helping companies get the most out of their x86 servers. After 2 or 3 meetings to discuss your goals, we can customize a server solution that meets your unique compute needs. We also provide proof of concept (POC) by testing your x86 solution design in our lab.

IBM Power Servers-min

IBM Power Servers

IBM Power servers give companies the compute performance they need to achieve cognitive insights. POWER9 is IBM’s highest-end processor, offering extensive bandwidth and ultra-fast I/O rates. The servers deliver up to 4TB of RAM in 2 sockets with one high-speed 25GB/s external port per socket and have DDR4 Industry Standard Memory RDIMMs. IBM POWER9 has increased performance, reliability, and security, as well as AI capabilities. Analytics and algorithms embedded on the chip help run POWER9 at an always-optimized frequency. A PowerVM hypervisor is built in at no extra license charge so every workload is virtualized, mobile, and cloud ready. IBM has announced that POWER10, which will meet the needs of hybrid cloud environments, is on the horizon. IBM Power servers support AIX and IBM i operating systems, as well as Linux.

ProActive understands that IBM Power meets customer requirements for analytics and big data, including the challenges of storing and processing unstructured data and massive data volumes. As a Platinum IBM Business Partner, we have the certifications needed to connect our customers with the right IBM Power solutions. Our engineers have senior-level expertise in IBM Power and can help you upgrade your older systems.

AIX-min

AIX

ProActive realizes that AIX expertise is becoming harder and harder to find. In the Kansas City market, we have the AIX experts necessary to help companies overcome the skills gap. We can assist you with this legacy operating system or help you transition to running AIX on the latest Power servers.

System i-min

System i

System i is designed to meet the needs of mission-critical applications. Current System i users may be experiencing a skills gap. ProActive has the System i knowledge and experience needed to breathe new life into your legacy operating system. We serve as a liaison between your company and IBM so you get the personal attention you want. Our team can also help you upgrade the servers you use to run System i.

IBM has announced the release of the 9009-xxG model of IBM i servers: These new IBM i servers deliver 2x more bandwidth and up to 180% more Enterprise NVMe capacity for a seamless integration between on-premises and public clouds through a full PCIe Gen4 architecture.
