We reported on the IBM Smart Cube i back in December, noting that IBM seemed to want to keep the product secret from many, though it was rolling it out mainly in India. The Smart Cube is almost like a server appliance for the System i, and here are some of the details:

  • Three Power-based configurations, with one, two or four processing cores activated.
  • Can run IBM i, AIX or Linux using 4.2 GHz Power6 chips
  • Includes a stack of systems and application software called the Smart Business Software Pack for i, which runs on the IBM i 6.1 OS

Now the Smart Cube is apparently being rolled out in the United States. The U.S. version, according to the story, has 17 ISVs that are configuring the cubes to run combinations of 45 different applications.
