We are excited to share that IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 will be available globally on September 14, 2022, and SQ Solutions clients will have the opportunity to reduce energy
consumption while reaching sustainability targets. IBM and its partners are helping clients, including those in regulated industries such as financial services, build a modern environment that is designed to improve business agility and reduce overall costs. ISVs can leverage the next generation of IBM LinuxONE’s highly secured and sustainable platform to deploy software across environments.
SQ Solution’s product SQustody enables Asset Managers to invest in digital assets and to
optimize their settlement processes making use of decentralized ledger technology and open-source components. Building on IBM’s cloud security leadership in confidential computing, IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 protects data in use while providing end-to-end encryption for data at rest and in flight.
IBM LinuxONE provides an optimized architecture designed to help meet the needs of modern sustainable digital business applications like SQustody.
IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4
According to an IBM IBV study, almost half (48 percent) of CEOs surveyed across industries say increasing sustainability is one of the highest priorities for their organization in the next two to three years. However, more than half (51%) also cite sustainability as among their greatest challenges in the next two to three years, with lack of data insights, unclear ROI, and technology barriers, as hurdles. The new IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 is an enterprise server designed to help reduce energy consumption. Consolidating Linux workloads on five IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 systems instead of running them on compared x86 servers under similar conditions can reduce energy consumption by 75%, space by 50 percent, and the CO2e footprint by over 850 metric tons annually. (1) Integrations with energy monitoring tools on the server also enable clients to track energy consumption.
Built on the IBM Telum Processor, IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 is a Linux platform that supports data serving, core banking and digital assets workloads. IBM LinuxONE Emperor 4 is a platform of choice for organizations that value sustainability and security.
Ecosystem Partners with IBM
As a part of the IBM Ecosystem, SQ Solutions is helping companies unlock the value
of cloud investments by implementing the tools and technologies that can help them succeed in a hybrid multicloud world. We are excited to be working closely with the IBM ecosystem to bring new innovation to our clients. Based on Linux, customers can benefit from open standards and an ecosystem that LinuxONE offers including modern DevOps and a variety of popular software. This can also help to remove operational barriers when customers deploy and manage technologies on cloud-native infrastructure.
(1) Disclaimer: Compared 5 IBM z16 Max 125 model consists of three CPC drawers containing 125 configurable cores (CPs, zIIPs, or IFLs) and two I/O drawers to support both network and external storage versus 192 x86 systems with a total of 10364 cores. IBM z16 power consumption was based on inputs to the IBM z16 IBM Power Estimation Tool for a memo configuration. x86 power consumption was based on March 2022 IDC QPI power values for 7 Cascade Lake and 5 Ice Lake server models, with 32 to 112 cores per server. All compared x86 servers were 2 or 4 socket servers. IBM Z and x86 are running 24x7x365 with production and non-production workloads. Savings assumes a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) ratio of 1.57 to calculate additional power for data center cooling. PUE is based on Uptime Institute 2021 Global Data Center Survey (https://uptimeinstitute.com/about-ui/press-releases/uptime-institute-11th-annual-global-data-center-survey). Due to the technical equivalence, the results are also valid for LinuxONE Emperor 4 Max 125 systems.
