Five weeks after refreshing its mainframe line, IBM is updating its high-end Power Unix server line. Relying on IBM's new Power 7+ CPUs, Big Blue promises the hardware will deliver a 30%-40% performance boost over prior-gen solutions. The Unix market appears to be in perpetual decline, as enterprises increasingly opt for Windows and Linux gear. But IBM has been able to mitigate the impact by taking share from H-P and Oracle. IBM is also rolling out a new high-end storage system, as well as an analytics appliance.
