Two new cluster-ready solution packages are available to further enhance the scalability of the IBM pSeries 680 (7017-S85). These solution packages provide a quick and easy way to order cluster-ready configurations incorporating one pSeries 680 with two pSeries 660 (7026-6H1) or 7026-M80 servers.
The cluster-ready solutions will utilize the IBM Parallel System Support Programs (PSSP) for AIX® and a customer-supplied control workstation to provide enhanced scalability for your enterprise. Up to 32 total pSeries and RS/6000® servers may be incorporated into a cluster under the control of the PSSP software and a single control workstation. The servers can be switch-attached to an existing SP cluster by adding SP attachment adapters if desired. The two pSeries 660 or 7026-M80 servers are mounted in the pSeries 680 I/O rack at the Customer Solutions Center before delivery to the customer.
