IBM P Series Online Backup
The IBM P series is a line of servers and workstations produced by IBM that used POWER3 and RS64-III processors to combine scalability and integer performance with floating point performance to meet the high performance needs of its customers. For the most part, the P series ran on the AIX operating system, although some later models may also have used a version of Linux, depending on customer needs. The product line, now out of production, included the following models:
â€¢ IBM eServer pSeries 610 (7028-6C1 & 6E1)
â€¢ IBM eServer pSeries 615 (7029-6C3, 7029-6E3) 1-2 POWER4 CPUs
â€¢ IBM eServer pSeries 620 (7025-F80, 6F0 & 6F1)
â€¢ IBM eServer pSeries 630 (7028-6C4, 7028-6E4) 1-4 POWER4 CPUs
â€¢ IBM eServer pSeries 640 (7026-B80) 1-4 POWER3-II CPUs
â€¢ IBM eServer pSeries 650 (7038-6M2) 2-8 POWER4 CPUs
â€¢ IBM eServer pSeries 655 (7039-651) 4-8 POWER4 CPUs
â€¢ IBM eServer pSeries 660 (7026-H80, 6H0, 6H1, M80 & 6M1)
â€¢ IBM eServer pSeries 670 (7040-671) 4-16 POWER4 CPUs
â€¢ IBM eServer pSeries 680 (7017 range)
â€¢ IBM eServer pSeries 690 (7040-681) 8-32 POWER4 CPUs
The IBM eServer pSeries was replaced by the IBM System p series during a product renaming and rebranding period, but the focus remain on high performance, scalable and efficient hardware throughout the different model designations of IBM’s server and workstation lines.
Over the years, the IBM pSeries was relied on by large companies and research universities around the world to meet their needs for advanced scientific computing and to solve computationally complex problems much more quickly than would otherwise have been possible.
With all of that being said, IBM System P is still used by many clients today. The P Series can process a huge, compound structure that could withstand the energy and power needed to run a geographical map comparable to any map you have used before. This can be done with room to spare for other applications, as well.
The IBM product line involves the latest and greatest, POWER7 system with the latest UNIX servers. The performance, energy saving properties, stability, safety and dependability will save any company money, time and essentially, manpower. The bottom line will drastically improve and so will the overall efficiency of your company.
To figure out which IBM P Series will be most fitting, one must first establish what the overall goal is as far as brute power and efficiency is needed. How many terabytes or petabytes of ram are needed for processing? Does the company need 25 quad-core processors? 50? 100? 150? Will there be micro-partitioning that share the same physical processor? This is all information that IBM solutions can help with.
IBM P Series has been known to solve business and technological solutions for years and keeps improving as time passes. While some models have been discontinued, others are taking their places. The world of IBM processing units is growing and expanding to the point in which they create even more classes and divisions. Z Series have come about. I Series models are still going strong. P Series has a huge conglomerate following that will rave of its qualities.
