More details on the Power6+ System i boxes

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

Timothy Prickett Morgan has a good, detailed article on Power6+ midrange servers — the 520, 550, 560 and JS23 and JS43 blades. The servers will be available on May 22 and run on System i 6.1, but unavailable on i5/OS V5R4. The new servers will also support AIX 5.3, AIX 6.1, Novell SLES 10 or later and RHEL 4 Update 5 or later.

    My concern is that IBM are pushing people to V6R1, when we are all a little wary of moving in that direction. Surely there's no technical reason why they couldn't have supported V5R4 on these new CPU's (via PTFs). I see a lot of interest out there for POWER6+, however users will stick with POWER6 so they can retain V5R4. AIX supports V5 and V6 of their software, so why no i?
