Yesterday was the announcement of the new zEnterprise system. Bigger, faster, better. That seems to be the bottom line.
Here are some of the specs from the IBM announcement page:
"At its core is the first model of the next generation System z, the zEnterprise 196 (z196). The industry’s fastest and most scalable enterprise system has 96 total cores running at an astonishing 5.2 GHz, and delivers up to 60% improvement in performance per core and up to 60% increase in total capacity."
