All the AIs NVMe, says IBM: Claims POWER9s + InfiniBand brainier than COTS

Unprejudiced software support is good reason for IBM consideration.

One thing IBM is doing right is providing "complete and strong" support for Redhat, Suse Enterprise and Ubuntu Linux on Powr9 servers, that both HP and Dell omit, directing customers get any Linux support from Linux vendors instead..

In past year, several small businesses, including a three location Pharmacy, a small private college (two thousand students), and an International Trading organization were strongly discouraged by both HP and Dell business sales teams form using Linux on their servers, even denigrating use of Linux in comparison to Windows Server, for which these companies partner with Microsoft.

What better reason to purchase from vendor/Manufacturer that supports best solution for client.
