The converged 520 and 550 Power systems

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

IBM has released a Redbook guide on the full convergence of its Power 520 and 550 servers, which now run IBM i (i5/OS), AIX and Linux. These models, announced in January 2008, came close to complete convergence that April. By last November, with the release of some system firmware, the convergence became complete.

The 644-page Redbook covers those completely converged models, starting with a broad look at the two systems and then delving into details. System i sysadmins will likely be most interested in a few System i-focused chapters: “IBM System i schematics for supported expansion units and towers,” “IBM i operating system and licensed program release level summary,” and “IBM i user license entitlement summary.”
