IBM Gives Added Power to Linux

Linux servers just keep getting increasingly powerful and capable of running enterprises of any size. In a new blog post, Scott Handy, vice president of STG Strategy and Business Development for PowerLinux at IBM, talks about the advantages of the IBM PowerLinux solutions built on a new Linux-only family of servers.

Handy says "the two-socket servers - one rack-mount and one compute node - run industry standard Linux, and have been tuned to run key emerging workloads like big data and open source network infrastructure."  With the new offerings, he adds, IBM is taking Power's scalability, flexibility, and security and extending those attributes to customers that might not have considered Power to be an option for them.

"Now, quite simply, IBM is taking pricing off the table," Handy writes. The full blog is on the developerWorks site.
