Why Power8?


The use of POWER8 processors at SoYouStart makes the Linux on Power technology more accessible as it relies on Linux OS - Ubuntu.
We can use this power in our everyday solutions and it is commonly used for databases. In fact this high capacity for parallelisation lets you perform demanding, compute intensive operations on large volumes of data. Such fast and efficient operations are made possible thanks to an internal 12 x 300 GB storage system which can be used in RAID-10.

This is especially true with MongoDB and MariaDB, which already provide specific releases taking advantage of this architecture. Using them on POWER8 increases the density of databases and operations on a single instance. With MongoDB in particular you can process massive volumes of data without sharding. As a matter of fact, these two database engines are promoting optimised releases which take full advantage of certain instruction sets specific to POWER8.
