  7. 7. STG Technical Conferences 2009 Statement of Direction for Enterprise Power Systems IBM is committed to enhancing their clients’ investment in the IBM Power Systems family of servers. Based on this commitment, IBM plans to provide an upgrade path from the current IBM Power® 595 server with 12X I/O to IBM's next-generation POWER7(TM) processor-based high-end server. The upgrade is planned as a simple replacement of the processor books and two system controllers with new POWER7 components, within the existing system frame. IBM also plans to provide an upgrade path from the current IBM Power® 570 server with 12X I/O to IBM's next generation POWER7 processor-based modular enterprise server. Enterprises with multiple systems leveraging PowerVM Live Partition Mobility may use this function to maintain application availability during an upgrade process that can execute during normal business hours instead of at night or over a weekend. IBM's Power 570 and 595 servers are engineered to deliver the highest levels of Power Systems reliability, availability and serviceability. IBM continues to execute a roadmap with innovations designed to help clients achieve continuous application availability, while easily and cost-effectively transitioning to new generations of technology . All statements regarding IBM's future direction and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice, and represent goals and objectives only. Any reliance on these Statements of Direction is at the relying party's sole risk and will not create liability or obligation for IBM. 13 Power Systems 2009 Hardware Announcements and Future Insights Copy for Dirk © 2009 IBM Corporation STG Technical Conferences 2009 Planning Statements POWER5 Upgrades (posted August 2009) • IBM plans that any upgrades preserving the same serial number into a POWER7 server will be from a POWER6 server. Clients on POWER5 and earlier technology will need to upgrade to POWER6 prior to being able to upgrade to POWER7 if they want to preserve their serial number. I/O Drawers (posted August 2009) • IBM plans that the POWER7 based systems will support the existing 12X I/O drawers currently supported on POWER6 systems. These include the #5796/7314-G30, #5797/5798, #5802, and #5803/5873. The older/slower RIO/HSL-attached I/O drawers will not be supported. POWER6 clients should consider replacing RIO/HSL I/O drawers with newer technology drawers to smooth eventual adoption of POWER7 servers. RIO/HSL I/O drawers include: #0595/5095/7311-D20, #5790/7311- D11, #5094/5294/5096/5296, #5088/0588 and #5791/5794/7040-61D. SCSI Disk Drives (posted August 2009) • IBM plans that POWER6 systems will be the last servers to support the attachment of SCSI disk drives which are 36GB or smaller or support the attachment of 10k rpm SCSI drives. Clients currently using smaller or slower SCSI drives should consider replacing these drives with newer technology drives which are currently supported on the POWER6 systems to smooth eventual adoption of POWER7 servers. QIC Tape (posted August 2009) • IBM plans that POWER6 systems will be the last servers to support the use of the QIC (Quarter Inch Cartridge) tape drives. The QIC media is also known as "SLR". Clients currently using QIC tape drives should consider migrating to newer technology media/drives which are currently supported on the POWER6 systems to smooth eventual adoption of POWER7 servers. IOP and IOP-based PCI adapters (posted August 2009) • IBM plans that the POWER6 based systems (all models) will be the last models to support the IBM i IOP and IOP based adapters. IOPless (Smart IOA) options are available for all I/O attachments (except Twinax and IXS) and provide more efficient attachment of I/O. Clients using IOP based I/O should make plans to move off IOPs to smooth the eventual adoption of POWER7 servers. IOP feature codes are #2843, #2844, #2847 (SAN Boot) and #3705. Note that there can be differences in the specific devices supported with or without an IOP by IBM i. For example some older tape libraries such as the 3590 require an IOP-based adapter. Or there may be a functional difference without an IOP, for example SDLC or X.25 on WAN/LAN adapters require an IOP. A partial list of adapters supported on POWER6 servers which require an IOP includes: – #4746Twinax Workstation Controller (which means no twinax displays/printers unless an OEM conversion device is used) – #4812/4813 Integrated xSeries Server (IXS) (use iSCSI alternative) – #2757/2780/5580/5778 Disk Controllers (use newer disk controllers) – #2787/5761/5760 Fiber Channel Adapters (use newer Fibre Channel Adapters) – #2749 HVD SCSI Adapter or Ultra Media Controller) (use newer technology - adapter and probably device also) All statements regarding IBM's future direction and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice, and represent goals and objectives only. Any reliance on these Statements of Direction is at the relying party's sole risk and will not create liability or obligation for IBM. 14 Power Systems 2009 Hardware Announcements and Future Insights © 2009 IBM Corporation 7
