Abstract: This paper describes testing that was done with Lawson M3 on the new IBM Power 740 Express and the IBM i operating system. This report highlights the benefits of the latest low end IBM POWER hardware and shows the enhanced scalability it can provide. First it shows how runtime performance the new POWER7 740 has improved over the previous POWER6 520 model. Second it shows scalability of the new IBM Power 740 with up to 6 processors. In addition when you combine the benefits of the new low end POWER7 hardware with the IBM i Solution Edition for Lawson you can create a complete hardware and software solution that is low cost and competitively priced.
