Mad Dog 21/21: When Price/Performance Outruns Elasticity

,----[ Quote ]
| IBM has announced a range of Power7 servers 
| for the i and AIX user communities. (These 
| machines support Linux, too, but that doesn't 
| define their markets.) Mainframes based on the 
| z11 (which will share some components with the 
| Power7 chips and which could end up with a 
| different name) are expected to debut before 
| long.

IBM Promotion Cuts PowerVM Hypervisor Upgrade Fees

,----[ Quote ]
| PowerVM runs on Power5, Power5+, Power6, 
| Power6+, and Power7 systems, and can be used 
| to provide logical partitioning for OS/400 
| V5R3, i5/OS V5R4, and i 6.1; AIX 5.2, 5.3, and 
| 6.1; Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5; and 
| Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 and 11. 
| I went through the pricing for PowerVM when 
| the new pricing was announced as part of the 
| Power Systems convergence back in April 2008, 
| and you can check that out here.
