RE: Power 8 supports 7.1?



fixed

Power8 can use the SSDs, not exactly sure which SSDs. We talked in Rochester quite a lot about the hardware, and I can't remember if there was any caveat on which generation of SSDs. Probably safe to say the chances are better with the Gen3, than with the Gen2, than with the Gen1 SSD drives.

Can Power8 use any pre Power8 hardware.
Mainly the SSD drives?

I saw that the Power 8 will run 7.1 at TR8 or later.

From the archives...wondering if this is still the case..

Steve Will responded with these corrections:
=================================================== The next generation of servers following POWER7® / POWER7+™ is not planned to support IBM i 6.1 and will require IBM i 7.1, or later.

That'd be nice, as it'd give me an upgrade path from my 515 running 7.1 to a Power 8 running 7.1 followed by an upgrade to 7.2
