So, after many year I might have convinced management to upgrade our aging Power 5 550 machine. I initally was looking at a four core 740, with two cores for i OS and two to support older AIX workloads. In the end, it looks like it might only be i OS on Power running on two Power cores. With some other projects going on in the division, the PureFlex system is being thrown out as another option. This configuration would have three or four x86 blades and one Power blade running two cores. The politics of the situation has me possibly axeing the x 86 blades and looking at a PureFlex system only with one Power blade. So, I guess what I'm looking for is some feedback on a 740 with 2 cores or a PureFlex blade with 2 cores. Both solutions would most likely be using DASD out of our V7000 system. I haven't seen any configs yet so I can't answer part numbers, memory, etc but I guess I'm looking for an AS/400/iSeries/system I person who might know more about the comparision of these two implementations.
