IBM Takes Command of the UNIX Data Center - POWER7 Enables Growth, Lower Costs
For decades, UNIX systems vendors have been providing continual and timely upgrades, enabling cus-tomers to run more applications, respond faster, and/or process more data without having to worry about architecture compatibility. Either the UNIX vendor delivered higher performance, expanded memory, and improved RAS, etc., or the customer would eventually migrate to a better platform. IBM continues to provide the scale-up UNIX data center with a plan, and a predic-table drumbeat, for the future. To learn more about IBM’s forthcoming POWER7 and AIX7, please read on.
