May Meeting Highlights

May meetingWe want to thank Mark Ruberry of IBM for flying in from Seattle to speak to our group this month. His topic was POWER8 and IBM i 7.2 Announcements. We had a great turnout and we were not disappointed with the presentation. We also enjoyed a BBQ lunch provided by Matt Kingdon and Ciber.

POWER8: IBM continues to deliver on technology with the latest hardware announcements, significantly improving the performance and throughput. When IBM says it is going to deliver, it does just that. It was interesting to note that Google has teamed up with IBM in the development of custom made hardware based on the POWER8 chip to use in their search engine servers. Obviously, with Google, they need processing power and POWER8 delivers.

IBM i 7.2: IBM announced the release of IBM i 7.2, the first new release in four years. This release provides significant new function to the operating system including taking advantage of the new Power Systems servers running on the new POWER8 technology.

 IBM i 7.2 new enhancements include:

  • Enhanced security options in DB2 for i
  • Many new functions for programmer productivity and expanded function in DB2 for i
  • Improved ease of use with IBM Navigator for i
  • Enhancements to iAccess Client Solutions
  • Extension of security to more applications through new single sign-on (SSO) environments
  • Liberty Core as the base for Integrated Application Server
  • Support for Zend Server 6.0 on IBM i 7.2
  • Performance improvements for the IFS
  • Extensions to the printing environments
  • Expanded Hub functions for Backup, Recovery, and Media Services (BRMS)
  • PowerHA SystemMirror for i Express Edition with new HyperSwap capability
  • Support for new Power Systems built with POWER8 architecture and processor
  • Additional I/O capabilities including support for WAN over LAN
  • Rational tools enhancements to support Free Format RPG
