IBM's PowerLinux is the combination of a Linux-based operating system running on IBM Power Architecture technology. This combination produces a customizable system capable of handling large quantities of data more efficiently without the need for additional hardware. To determine real world performance, we composed a test scenario with two comparable systems running large database operations. This test also shows that Linux can be an abstraction layer on different types of hardware that are better at running certain workloads.
