IBM Will Fill The Hole In The Power8 Line
November 3, 2014 Timothy Prickett Morgan
The Power8 rollout has seen entry machines with one and two sockets, the so-called scale-out Power S-class machines. And IBM has just condensed the enterprise-class Power 770 and Power 780 machines with the high-end Power 795 to come up with the new scale-up or enterprise Power E-Class machines using the Power8 chips. But there is a pretty big hole in the middle between these two classes of machines, and one that IBM knows it has to fill before too long.
And the word from on high is that IBM will, indeed, fill the gap between the entry and enterprise class.
