Abstract: This paper describes testing that was done with Infor M3 10.1 on the new IBM® POWER7+™ 740 and the IBM i 7.1 operating system. This report highlights the benefits of the latest IBM POWER® hardware and IBM i™ operating system as well as the benefits that usage of solid state drives or SSDs can provide. First it shows how runtime performance on the new POWER7+ has improved over a similarly configured POWER7® system. Second it shows the benefits SSDs can provide in an I/O constrained environment.
