Basefarm’s POWERCloud Platform
Basefarm’s POWERCloud Platform offers unmatched performance and resilience for databases and applications running either on AIX, i/OS or Linux. The platform is, as the name suggests, built on cloud principles with state-of-the-art elasticity and flexibility – yet does not compromise on technical security (EAL4+), legal regulations and raw application/database performance.
Due to several extra features on the infrastructure level, which secures reliability, availability and serviceability, we do offer a bit higher SLA on this platform than our other platforms. Our POWERCloud will run a wide range of applications, but is exceptionally well at handling heavy databases and Java applications that require high and steady system throughput. Because of the high clock frequency on CPU’s, low latency architecture and no overhead virtualization layer it often outperforms other platforms when it comes to response times.
Since the platform is built for market leading performance, core-based licenses will typically benefit from this, due to lower occupied processor cores than on other platforms.
Oracle databases will typically have a license saving on 30-50%, which in most cases is significant.
