The 520, 550, 570 have all been enhanced with POWER5+ processors and the 595 is enhanced with a 1.9 GHz POWER5 processor. Now, Capacity on demand is available on all models, with the introduction of processor capacity on demand (CUoD, On/Off, Trial and Reserve) in the 1/2 way 520, and the IBM Accelerator for System i5 with Value and Express. Also, the 570 now starts at a 2/4-way (previously 1/2-way) and has simplified product structure for mixing different operating environments. Note that a Hardware Management Console (HMC) is not required to turn on the Accelerator nor to activate the second processor in the 12-way 520.Note that new, faster DDR2 memory is used in the new POWER5+ 520, 550 and Also, for the first time it is now possible to run a system without using an I/O processor (IOP). In practice, this feature will probably only be used on the 520.The edition structure of the new models is very similar, with the addition of a high availability edition on the 550 and 595, and a Capacity Backup Edition (CBU) on the 595.
4IBM Systems Agenda Un disegno strategico per sviluppare tecnologie, risorse e competenze innovative CollaborativeInnovationWorking together with clients and IBM Business Partners, IBM provides the breadth of expertise and resources to design, build and implement IT solutions that can drive innovation and help transform your business.OpennessIBM is committed to sharing technology with the industry and providing the industry's richest portfolio of interoperable server and storage systems.VirtualizationOptimize IT operations and dynamically respond to the priorities of the business by managing the IT environment more efficiently with proven IBM cross-platform virtualization capabilities.IBM’s’ strategic commitment through the IBM Systems Agenda.In the 2006 IBM Global CEO Study of 765 CEO’s, external collaboration was deemed as indispensable. Internal and external collaboration is necessary to widen the innovation circle and capture fresh ideas and new approaches. But to do that successfully, you need to know HOW to use technology for business advantage. With our commitment to collaborative innovation, IBM can help you do that.And openness becomes a critical link- systems need to interoperate, not just within an organization, but as far reaching as possible to get the right people working on the right things. IBM does this with our open communities as well as incorporating this philosophy of openness into our product development at all levels. This helps to ensure a rich portfolio of systems that you can choose from for applications as well as have confidence that systems can interoperate with each other.Finally, managing the IT environment needs to continue to become more seamless, more autonomic, more fluid. With massive amounts of information and data exploding exponentially, the need to manage more efficiently is becoming a critical success factor.And moving resources to where they are needed must become standard procedure. Advancements in virtualization, both within systems, across systems, perhaps even across systems around the world improve the ability to improve the productivity of your IT staff and your IT systems. Then you can begin to free up your IT talent to focus on innovative ways of running the business, vs just focusing on running IT.Transition Line: Building systems that can support innovation is more than developing faster chips. It is more than running benchmarks. While these are important, they don’t transform your business. How you APPLY technology is what can make you stand out in the market place. The IBM Systems agenda is our commitment to helping you do that.
