[News] GNU/Linux on Power6 Machines is Growing

Hash: SHA1

Virtualization soars on Big Blue Power boxes

,----[ Quote ]
| The overall adoption rate for Power6-based servers in the fourth quarter rose 
| a little bit to 66 per cent of all machines, according to Handy, which is up 
| a little bit from the 64 per cent attach rate on new systems in the second 
| quarter of 2008. Overall adoption of the logical partitioning hypervisor came 
| to 21 per cent of machines, for all System p boxes running AIX or Linux back 
| in the second quarter of 2007.     


Windows can't run on such computers.


Virtualization Takes Off on Entry Power Systems

,----[ Quote ]
| It looks like server virtualization really is heading to the mainstream on
| Power Systems machines, if some figures provided by the top brass at IBM are
| any indication. While logical partitioning has been available on OS/400-based
| servers since V4R4 was launched with the Northstar PowerPC servers back in
| 1999, it has been embraced mostly by big shops with big iron even as Linux
| and AIX partitions were added to the logical partitioning mix.

| package). GDA Technologies' "Bali" board is based on Freescale's MPC5121e, a
| system-on-chip (SoC) product targeting automotive telematics, building
| automation, medical diagnostics, surveillance, digital home, and gaming
