Red Hat and SUSE join IBM in new Linux system, Canonical opts out

Hardware

Over a year in the making IBM has just unveiled its new IBM PowerLinux Systems and Solutions. This new series of Linux-specific POWER7 processor-based hardware comes with a choice of either Red Hat Enterprise Linux or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server . It’s designed for analyzing Big Data, managing industry-specific applications and delivering open source infrastructure services for the mid market and above. Canonical, Ubuntu’s parent company, opted out of offering its Linux on this new server family though.

According to IBM, “The new PowerLinux Solutions and supporting systems are designed to provide customers with lower deployment time and costs, and greater performance, dependability and workload density than competitive x86 platforms at similar price points.” This is meant to complement IBM AIX Unix and IBM i application requirements on Power Systems.
