IBM has revealed its IBM POWER10 processors. This new CPU provides three times the energy efficiency, workload capacity, and container density compared to IBM POWER9. 

Features of IBM POWER10 include support for multi-petabyte memory clusters, new hardware-enabled security capabilities, and new processor core architectures.

“Enterprise-grade hybrid clouds require a robust on-premises and off-site architecture inclusive of hardware and co-optimized software,” said Stephen Leonard, GM of IBM Cognitive Systems. “With IBM POWER10 we’ve designed the premier processor for enterprise hybrid cloud, delivering the performance and security that clients expect from IBM. With our stated goal of making Red Hat OpenShift the default choice for hybrid cloud, IBM POWER10 brings hardware-based capacity and security enhancements for containers to the IT infrastructure level.”
