Statement of Direction
Bottom rule

It is IBM's intention to withdraw from marketing those features that allow additional processor cores and memory DIMMS to be added to existing POWER6-based servers. Those servers include the Power® 595 (9119-FHA), Power 570 (9117-MMA), Power 560 (8234-EMA), Power 550 (8204-E8A), Power 520 (8203-E4A), System i® 570 (9406-MMA), System i 550 (9409-M50), System i 520 (9408-M25), and the System i 520 (9407-M15). In addition, it is IBM's intention to withdraw from marketing those features that allow the permanent activation of processor cores and memory that are currently installed but inactive on existing POWER6-based servers. These new changes will take effect in the second half of 2014.

IBM's statements regarding its plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice at IBM's sole discretion. Information regarding potential future products is intended to outline our general product direction and it should not be relied on in making a purchasing decision. The information mentioned regarding potential future products is not a commitment, promise, or legal obligation to deliver any material, code, or functionality.
