Dear IBM i client,
In 2010, we delivered new POWER7 processor-based systems, a new release of IBM i, and enhancements across our Power Systems Software portfolio, including PowerVM and PowerHA. These investments deliver significantly improved product offerings for our loyal IBM i clients, delivering a technology foundation for the future.
The new POWER7 processor-based systems offer IBM i clients gains in both performance and reliability. IBM i 7.1, a major release, included improved application performance, automated systems management and enhanced virtualization capabilities. IBM i 7.1 contains new features and capabilities that are based on customer requirements articulated and prioritized in collaboration with our advisory councils, representing COMMON, COMMON Europe, ISVs and our Large User Group.
You will find that our commitment to our IBM i clients, ISVs and business partners is solid and unchanged. With our clearly defined processor and software roadmap, we are making substantial investments in the future of IBM i as an important, strategic element in the IBM systems portfolio. Thanks for your business and your confidence in the future of one of the world’s most durable and productive platforms for business.
Vice President, IBM Power Systems
