Re: IBM will announce two new System i models, 515 and 525 on Apr. 10.



fixed

New models!?
i5/os without the database? Who would run that? Domino? SAP?

Wasn't the rumor mill that IBM will unbundle the database in an effort to
push everyone to some PASE based database in an effort to migrate those
off of i5/os and on to Linux. Doesn't SAP already use a pase enabled
database? So now does DB2 fall into the realm of the interactive tax?

I can understand Domino on the i5. Separate subsystems for each domino
partition. Ability to bounce one while the others hum along. Ability to
individually tune each domino server separately, etc.
However, what does pase, without DB2, bring to an application that running
it under Linux or aix wouldn't?
