IBM Brings power Linux servers to China
IBM is serious about expanding the footprint of the Linux operating system running on power servers.
Considering that IBM recently reported a 31% Decline in overall Power-based system revenue, it’s a footprint that needs to get bigger, fast.
IBM announced a new Initiative in china in an effort to help grow the position of Linux on power. The new initiative will see a power system Linux centre. Located inside of IBM’s china systems centre in Beijing. The centre will be staffed by over 30 dedicated Linux professionals that are tasked with enabling Chinese customers to run applications on Linux Power systems.
The power systems Linux centre will be operated in collaboration with IBM’s Linux Partners, Red Hat and SUSE Linux.
