IBM i5 Model 520

Based on the new POWER5 chip technology, the IBM i5 systems provide 64-bit computing power, combined with advanced On Demand and Virtualization technology. Features designed to help simplify your infrastructure include:

  • Support for multiple operating systems, including Linux, AIX, Windows, and the new AS/400 OS, i5/OS, and other legacy OS/400 operating environments
  • Support for e-Business application environments like Websphere and Java
  • Dynamic distribution of processing and other computing resources to maximize server utilization rate,improve productivity, and lower your TCO (total cost of ownership)
  • Dynamic logical partitioning through IBM's Virtualization Engine, allows you to consolidate multiple workloads, pool resources and optimize their use across up to 254 partitions, running different operating systems and application environments
  • On Demand pricing allows you unlimited purchasing flexibility in purchasing only the computing power you need

Consolidating multiple workloads frees your IT staff from using all their time managing multiple unwieldy systems, allowing them to concentrate on new projects, to improve the functionality and business advantages gained through IT.

IBM’s new i5 system offers the enterprise-class RAS (reliability, availability, serviceability) features you would require in a mainframe system. RAS features include:

  • Hot-plug disk slots
  • Hot-plug PCI-X slots
  • Redundant hot-plug cooling fans
  • Integrated service processor
  • An optional redundant, hot-plug power supply
