Support additional memory on 4-core server models. 128GB or even 256GB.

Over time POWER processors have gained capability. From 4,200 CPW on a POWER6 to over 20,000 CPW on today's Power10. When POWER7 was introduced the CPU went from 4,200 CPW per core to 6,000 per core AND supported memory on low end servers went f...

Evaluate if Nutanix on Power Systems is valid (again) with new workloads

Nutainx runs quite many areas inside companies, like VDI but also databases and plain app-vms. In this scenario also offering Power Systems as HW nodes might make the usage of Power Systems easier for customers to implement/use for Linux and AIX.

Finally leverage "the mainframe lesson" and fully exploit NUMA in POWERsystems

Why run VIO servers in the same cores, DIMMs, buses, etc. as all your real workloads? Instead of a 2-socket / 2 NUMA domain system, sell us an asymmetric 4-socket / 4 NUMA domain system where 2 of the sockets / domains are much smaller and contain...
