IT Jungle: IBM i Tech Refresh Sports Live Partition Mobility

Tim Prickett Morgan of IT Jungle has a pretty complete rundown of IBM’s IBM i Tech Refresh for i 7.1 that IBM announced last week. Here’s the opening paragraph from Tim’s article and it just gets more detailed from here.

As The Four Hundred told you months ago, IBM was indeed working on a Technology Refresh update for its IBM i operating system for the spring and this update does indeed include live partition mobility, bringing the IBM i platform up to the same level of logical partition live migration that AIX and Linux on Power have had for years. The Tech Refresh also includes a number of other enhancements to the integrated DB2 for i database, a repackaging of the DB2 Web Query tool, and a number of other tweaks and changes.

Tim covers all the bases in the article and it’s a great complete rundown on the new refresh. You can read it by clicking here.
