"IBM has strengthened its hand in the Unix business with new systems based on its Power7 processors, including a server for large enterprises that scales to 256 cores. The Power 795 is IBM's biggest Unix server to date. It's aimed at companies that run large scale database applications or want to consolidate multiple Unix or Linux workloads onto a single system using IBM's PowerVM virtualisation software.

"IBM also launched several low end Power7-based servers, each with one or two processors. Combined with the mid-range systems it launched earlier this year, the new servers round out IBM's Power7 line-up from top to bottom.

"All the new systems are offered with Linux or IBM's AIX or i operating systems (i is the new name for IBM's i5/OS)."
