Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

IBM has prepped a new Unix workstation that runs on one of the fastest Power4+ processors around.

The new IntelliStation Power 275 workstation ships with up to two 1.45GHz Power4+ processors. Like most Unix workstations, the product is targeted at handling 3D CAD/CAM and other visualization applications well.

The system can hold up to 16GB of memory, 587GB of disk, six PCI slots and four hot-swap disk bays. The kit also ships with the controversial AIX operating system.

IBM recently upgraded some of the low end servers that sit right above the Power 275 workstation in the company's Unix server line. IBM, however, only coughed up 1.2GHz Power4+ chips for the servers. The faster 1.45GHz chips should come in due course.

The Unix workstation market is not what it used to be, but giants such as IBM, Sun Microsystems and HP still pay close attention to it.

Sun holds a vast market share lead over its rivals and a has large upgrade underway for its Unix workstation products. ®
