POWER = IBM i +AiX + Linux?

David Vasta David Vasta Profile: David Vasta

It’s been a few months and not much has come from the POWER Equation. I don’t see what I expected to see from IBM over the new POWER thingies and I really wanted to see more. I have been on the IBM Power site every week for about 5 months now waiting for something cool to happen.

The two solutions I know the best are IBM i and Linux. I do know something about AIX but not as much as I would like.

I can tell you that I am working ona site like IBM to pull POWER and experts together in one place. I do think the future of the POWER community is in unification and COMMON and the AIX Convention (If there is one?) should merge and come together.

    Think POWER = Hardware, HYPERVISOR = VM. i will just be another OS like AIX, and Linux and possibly extending the 64 bit Lx86 emulator that can run more than just Linux at the hypervisor level. Serial numbers and hardware are going to be priced the same soon, i will be more expensive than AIX or Linux to make up for the 400 tax.

    Ken, There is no more 400 tax, it's all gone. So from this point forward you are paying for Hardware that is all the same and the OS is all. You will of course pay for features and users.
