IBM Power Linux Advantage (Robert Francis Group white paper)
A good portion of the growth in corporate data center environments today is accelerated by distributed, virtualized architectures that offer a combination of low entry costs, manageability and processer performance.
Linux is being employed on a significant – and growing – portion of these solutions as it is rapidly gaining market share due to its cost, the number of applications and development frameworks it offers, and its growing talent pool.
This whitepaper serves as a report analyzing the cost and architectural strengths of IBM’s PowerLinux 7R1 and 7R2 solutions using POWER7+ chips as compared to competitive platforms from Dell Inc. and HP.
