IBM has released new eServer software which it claims will boost the power of existing Unix servers.
AIX 5L Version 5.2 improves system utilisation and helps lower costs through workload balancing and the ability to add resources on the fly, IBM said.
Big Blue claims that peak utilisation can average 85 to 100 per cent with the new software. Executives said that cost savings depend on automated workload management capabilities.
AIX works on eServer pSeries systems, and allows users to divide a server into smaller 'virtual' servers running either Unix or Linux.
Users can shift workloads and change resources transparently so that, if a partition needs to be restarted, it does not affect other virtual servers.
