Big Blue kills off CSM clustering

Marc Hamilton

Guess CSM customers will have to migrate

On one hand, I feel sorry for all the IBM CSM customers who now have to migrate to a new software stack, on the other hand, IBM is really doing them a favor because there are so many better software choices out there, Sun's own HPC software stack, www.sun.com/software/products/hpcsoftware/ or

Unicluster from Univa UD being two good options.

IBM slashes chip animation, new server prices

New discounts on old gear?

So if I'm an IBM customer, and have an unlicensed CPU I've had sitting in my server for a few months or a few quarters, I can get a discount versus buying a new, faster CPU (which I could probably get the same discount on if I tried)? Oh wait, that is right, IBM doesn't let you mix CPU speeds, if you want to do that you will need to trade in that IBM server for a Sun box.

There Will Be A Fight To Value

Michael Dell is right, there will be a fight to value in the storage space, but it won't be driven only by cheap hardware, it will be enabled by open storage software including ZFS and other open storage software, http://www.sun.com/storage/openstorage/

A Great Upgrade to Sun's M-Series

People love to complain on blogs, and I must admit I have my own bias, but early response from real customers who have already purchased and installed the latest quad core M-series servers has been great. Check out the benchmarks on Sun's web page including SAP and Linpack (HPC) and see for yourself what the excitement is about.
