Announcing systems and solutions for a Smarter Planet
IBM introduces five new POWER7® processor-based systems for large enterprises and midsize companies. The new POWER7 systems run AIX®, IBM i and Linux® solutions and are designed for both transaction processing and throughput computing workloads like business analytics.
Power is workload optimizing systems
New systems added to the POWER7 processor-based server family.
AIX 7 is the only UNIX operating system designed to scale in support of today's massive transaction and throughput computing workloads – with up to 1024 threads on POWER7. It includes new virtualization capabilities designed to simplify the consolidation of older, AIX V5.2 applications as well as built-in clustering capability that provides a scalable clustering infrastructure foundation for PowerHA SystemMirror resiliency solutions. AIX 7 is guaranteed to be binary compatible with AIX 6, AIX 5L™ and even earlier versions of AIX, and is available in Standard, Enterprise and Express Editions. Early access for testing is now available via the AIX 7 Open Beta program.
