Thursday March 19, 2015:
IBM Flash Storage
The modern, consolidated, virtualized, mobile, social, and
cloud-embracing world demands higher and faster throughputs, and our
expectations have risen accordingly. Higher throughput at lower
latency can never be a bad thing; but—surprisingly—these are often
not the parameters on which storage purchase decisions are made.
The IBM FlashSystem enterprise storage offering represents a tipping
point for many where flash not only offers significant performance
improvements, but also significantly drives down the total cost of
ownership for storage based on a smaller, more cost-efficient
storage has changed the industry permanently.
And YES, you can use it with IBM i OS!
David Rihtar from IBM will be joining us at our March meeting to
talk about how Flash Storage delivers industry leading value through
scalable performance, enduring economics and agile integration.
Come see why FlashSystems might be the best thing since
before noon on the day before the meeting

has announced that IBM i OS V6R1 will be withdrawn
from marketing on December 14, 2014 and
withdrawn from service on September 30,
2015. This means that if you are not already at V7
you should consider upgrading to V7R1 or V7R2 as soon as possible.
Service Extension will most likely be available for V6R1, but this
will be an additional cost above Software Maintenance as Software
Maintenance is a requirement for service Extension.
Extended support for V5R4 is ending!
Support for V5R4 ended on September 30, 2013.
Service Extension for V5R4 ends September 30, 2016.
