The IBM PowerLinux 7R4 Server.

Chuck Bryan, Team Leader for Linux on Power Systems, and I discuss Power 7 and Power 7+ Systems, the power behind the famous Watson computer, and the recent Linux on Power Systems announcement from IBM, the IBM PowerLinux 7R4 server.

PowerLinux systems run industry standard Red Hat Enterprise Linux or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. You can also partition Power Systems using PowerVM virtualization tools to run Linux, AIX, or IBM i applications.

This interview focuses on IBM’s announcement about the new PowerLinux System (PowerLinux 7R4) for analytics and cloud computing. The PowerLinux 7R4 server is the same technology behind Watson. The purpose of the PowerLinux 7R4 is to provide businesses with a system that is an energy and cost-efficient computing platform to run your data-centric workloads for analytics, transaction processing, applications, and other compute-intense workloads.

The Power Systems line provides you with a secure, reliable computing and energy efficient virtualization platform.

An interesting addition to IBM’s announcement, that Chuck discusses during the podcast, is that IBM has partnered with EnterpriseDB, the company that develops and supports the open source database, PostgreSQL, to bring you a low-cost, Oracle-compatible solution. EnterpriseDB’s Postgres Plus Advanced Server allows you to seamlessly migrate off of Oracle and onto an equally capable database (RDBMS) for a fraction of Oracle’s cost.

In May 2013 IBM opened the world’s first IBM’s Power Systems Linux Center in Beijing, China and in June 2013 IBM announced its intention to open two more IBM Power Systems Linux Centers in New York and Austin, TX.

IBM’s SmartCloud Entry 3.1 Launch (Podcast)

May 14, 2013 Comments off

smartcloudentryToday, IBM launches its new SmartCloud Entry version 3.1 that adds support for Hyper-V to VMware, PowerVM, and KVM that will be available to the public mid-June 2013. The podcast includes IBM Program Director for Cloud Computing Systems and Technology Group, Jeff Borek, Product Line Manager for Virtualization and Cloud Solutions, IBM Systems Software Team, Ian Robinson, and Alan Dickinson,  IBM Program Director for Cloud Computing in Mid-sized Businesses.

Length: 32:05 minutes, MP3 format, Rated G for all audiences.

In the podcast, the IBM team and I cover the general features and aspects of SmartCloud Entry. Plus, I ask the team some tough questions about affordability, maintenance, ease of deployment of new resources and more.

Why it’s frugal: IBM’s SmartCloud Entry is frugal because it enables businesses to provision cloud resources with a few simple mouse clicks, it’s inexpensive compared to other cloud solutions, it’s easy for businesses to create a private cloud without having to purchase additional hardware or without having to replace what they already have. SmartCloud Entry is multi-vendor compatible and multi-platform capable.

If you don’t get all of your questions answered from the podcast, you can contact an IBM partner and connect to IBM’s Cloud Computing site for more information. The site provides you with several videos, features lists, links to products and services, and much more including a community site where you can read blogs, watch videos, and participate in cloud forums.
