This is an odd blog - it is about the withdrawal of POWER6 - which was announced in stealth mode!
It has come as a shock to some customers. Given POWER7 comes with vast improvements in price performance you might say: Who cares and who would be buying POWER6 anyway? Well some customers with long term roll-out plans, need consistent equipment for reduced complexity and reduced testing and so still want POWER6 and could get caught out. So if you care, here is my list of withdrawal dates after which you can't buy new machines (nor POWER5 to POWER6 upgrades):
Hope this help, thanks, Nigel Griffiths
