IBM To Introduce POWER4-Based Blade Servers
IBM unveiled new blade servers in November, based on its POWER processor technology.
The eServer BladeCenter JS20 blade servers, based on the same processors as its pSeries servers, fit in the same enclosure as the company's Intel Xeon-based HS20 blade servers, said Jeff Benck, eServer BladeCenter vice president.
"With the POWER technology, you can now have a 64-bit Linux blade sitting next to an Intel blade in the same chassis," Benck said.
The JS20 servers will initially support SuSE and Turbo Linux, said Benck, because the entry-level RISC space is moving to Linux. "We are seeing many customers on Sun today moving towards Linux," he said.
In mid-2004, the JS20 will support the AIX 5L operating system, Benck said.
