RE: POWER 6, V5R4, and 6.1



fixed

We migrated our 570 Power 5+ running v5r3 to a 570 Power 6. We went
with v5r4m5, but primarily because of the application we run; this box
runs our ecommerce website, using IBM's Websphere Commerce.

In other words, we don't have a 'native' system i app running on this
particular box.

Guess what? When we had to make the decision earlier this year,
Commerce wasn't even ready for i6.1!!! If it was, maybe we would have
gone all the way. It's too bad too, because we are not yet realizing
some of the full potential the Power 6 could give us.

Just an informal survey. We're getting ready to upgrade our V5R3 720 to
a
new POWER 6 system. Has anyone else done this and did you go to V5R4 or

6.1? If anyone has additional insight on this would, that also be
welcome.

Thanks,
