In order to further popularize Linux servers, IBM has introduced a new range

of servers under its pSeries called OpenPower. These servers run on 64-bit

Power5 processors and are targeted at making the offerings under pSeries more

cost-effective. The company would also be rolling out a 21-city roadshow

beginning mid-Feb to showcase this product both to its partners as well as

customers.

To push OpenPower through all partners who currently sell servers including Intel-based servers

Talking more about the initiative, Alok Ohrie, VP-Systems Technology Group,

IBM India said, "Launch of these servers reflects our commitment to the

spirit of open source and also our constant endeavor to bring high-performance

technology products at more affordable price-points." The company will be

pushing OpenPower through all partners who currently sell servers including

Intel-based servers. "Our idea is to demystify the entire myth that

Unix/Linux-based servers are



difficult to sell and hence would be making OpenPower available to a wider set
of our partners to deal in," added Alok.

Currently there are two models available: OpenPower 710 and 720. The pricing

for the same is being currently worked by IBM.
