Power Systems customers now have immediate access to thousands of new Linux/x86 applications, without having to wait until a native Linux on Power version is available.
By Ian Robinson
A recent marketing campaign by IBM emphasizes the "New Power Equation." In 2008, when IBM completed the merger of its popular System i and System p product lines into the single IBM Power Systems range, that equation was a case of one plus one equals three. This was because, in addition to running applications created for the IBM i operating system as well as AIX, the new Power Systems servers are also capable of running Linux, the fastest-growing operating system in the market. In fact, Power Systems servers can run just about any Linux application available, including native Linux on Power solutions and applications compiled for Linux/x86 as well, due to a technology known as PowerVM Lx86.
