Getting started with enterprise Linux on POWER-based systems
Recognized as a high-performance, reliable, and serviceable enterprise platform, the 64-bit POWER(TM) architecture offers new choices to UNIX and Linux application developers. Anyone with a background in either AIX or Linux on other platforms can benefit from the strength of the open source community combined with the POWER of world-class IBM hardware.
With offerings from affordable two-way servers to vertically scaled super computers to the cutting-edge JS20 BladeCenter(TM), POWER-based machines run the gamut of size and scale, always exceeding the expectations placed on enterprise-class hardware. The opportunity to run Linux or AIX, along with innovative configurations such as Dynamic Logical Partitioning, provides a unique platform for development and deployment of applications that feed on the POWER architecture's performance. This article will arm you with the tools and knowledge you need to make the most of your code and the POWER platform.
