Announcing systems and solutions for a Smarter Planet
IBM introduces new POWER7® processor-based systems, software and solutions for companies of all sizes. New high-end offerings redefine computing to address the challenges of a smarter planet — large scale business analytics and databases, high volume transaction processing, and consolidation to exponentially lower costs. New Express systems and solutions for midsize businesses offer attractively priced servers and upgrades, integrated mission-critical solutions, and proven capabilities to simplify server rooms while positioning companies for future growth.
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 virtualisation 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 programme.
