Big Blue has revealed details of the latest models in its RS/6000 family and has claimed the products will give it a headstart over competitors HP and Sun. The H70 is an enterprise server with a claimed 50 per cent boost over its old H50 model and improved 64-bit PowerPC chips. IBM also has introduced a cluster of machines called the HA H70 which includes a set of scripts for application software. Ken Batty, RS/6000 marketing manager for IBM in the UK, said: "The H70 is a rack mounted upgrade to the H50 or available as a new machine. This is a 64 bit machine available from one to four 64 biy processors running AIX 4.3 He said it competes with and beats equivalent Sun boxes on price and performance. "The key areas for these marchines are as database servers with around 17000 transactions on TPCC," he said. "Just having a 64 bit OS and 64 bit chips allows you to address more than two gigabytes of memory." The machines have a SpecWeb of 11,800, Batty said. He said the products will support a whole raft of software applications including Domino, SAP, Baan, PeopleSoft and Candel. "We provide scripts with the machines that will bring applications back up if they fall over," he claimed. ®
