I've asked a BP for a quote on a Power 7 to replace our System i 520,
thinking that maybe the 3 year cost wouldn't be much more than the
maintenance alone on the System i. Haven't received the quote yet, so I
don't know if I'm delusional or not.
Anyway, the System i has 16 ~36gb drives at only 20% capacity. IOW we only
have 98gb data on the System i. Isn't the smallest drive available on the
Power 7 larger than that? At a minimum I would want 4 drives, raided, with
a 5th as a hot spare. Any way to tell the performance, disk-wise, of that
system as compared to our current system?
