About That April 11th Announcement…IT Jungle Breaks Down Some Possibilities

Tim Prickett Morgan (TPM) at IT Jungle is on the case with what could be coming in IBM’s April 11th “New Era of Computing” announcement.

IBM may be prepping its Next Generation Platform (NGP) for launch on April 11th, which according to TPM:

In essence, this NGP thing is a baby version of the “system of systems” mashup that IBM created with the blade-extended System zEnterprise 196 mainframes two years ago. But it looks like this time the server nodes are peers, not Power and X86 playing second fiddle to the mainframe.
