IBM Ships 1,000th POWER6-Based System p UNIX Server

I’ve been busy trying to wrap-up on our fall plan development commitments for the Systems Management updates I was working on earlier in the year; and also starting a new appliance and virtual appliance project, more on that soon.

However, this came across in my email today, and I thought it was worth a quick post. We’ve shipped our 1,000th Power6 based System p server to a customer, Arrow Electronics.

You can read the full press release here. Coincidentally for me, Arrow is based just down Route 110, in Melville NY, from where I used to work at Chemical Bank in the 1980’s, the heyday of my virtualization efforts.
