  • Migrating OpenShift workload from x86 to Power using Multi-Arch Compute
    by Paul Chapman on 2024-04-11 at 19:12

    This demo features the use of OpenShift Multi-Arch Compute to transfer workloads from an x86 Worker Node to an IBM Power Worker Node. The Sock-Shop, an open-source e-commerce solution that utilizes microservices and is available on GitHub, is used for this purpose.The solution is installed on a combination of x86 and Power Worker Nodes. To begin the migration process, I cordon both x86 and one of the Power Worker Nodes, thereby preventing Pods from being scheduled to them. Subsequently, I delete the Pods on one of the x86 Worker Nodes, which are restarted on the Power Worker Node.00:00 Sock Shop Installation on Multi-Arch OpenShift00:11 Sock Shop Web Site00:17 Sock Shop Nodes00:49 Sock Shop Pods & Containers01:34 Cordon Nodes01:54 Delete x86 Pods02:12 Pods starting on Power03:13 The Sock Shop is fully functional again

  • IBM Hardware, Software, And Support Prices Hiked
    by Timothy Prickett Morgan on 2024-04-08 at 04:07

    Last fall/summer we caught wind of the fact that IBM was going to raise prices on hardware and software effective this year, and then we never saw the announcement letter from Big Blue on General Price Harmonization or the one on price increases relating specifically to Power Systems and IBM i. As it turns out, those announcements were made on September 1 last year and they went into effect on January 1 – something that was not apparent to us (or the business partners that we talk to from time to time) until we were reviewing the subscription pricing deal … The post IBM Hardware, Software, And Support Prices Hiked appeared first on IT Jungle.

  • Collecting communications trace data for IBM i PowerHA Cluster partition issues
    on 2024-04-03 at 15:48

    In an IBM i cluster environment, a node can transition to a status of Partition. It is difficult to capture the cause of this by only looking at cluster logging data. A TRCCNN is needed to attempt to capture the communications issue.

  • Overcoming Cloud Migration Challenges on Power Systems
    by Emma Pitzl on 2024-04-03 at 05:01

    You can organize the costs and risks associated with migrating Power Systems workloads to the cloud into three categories: architectural, cost/performance optimization, and security and compliance. However, the combination of increased costs, staffing difficulties and a perception that Power Systems servers lack the flexibility needed to meet modern demands has led many organizations to begin actively looking at options to migrate Power-based workloads into the cloud.

  • What Do Secondhand Power9 Machines Cost These Days?
    by Timothy Prickett Morgan on 2024-03-25 at 04:07

    Before IBM consolidated its Global Asset Recovery Services arm in the Systems group in the wake of the spinout of the Kyndryl outsourcing and services business, we could go out to the IBM web site every now and then and get a sense of what secondhand Power Systems machinery cost. But alas, that is no longer the case. And so, we went poking around the Internet late on a Friday night and stumbled across our old friends at Data Tech Computer Services in Alpharetta, Georgia, which have been in business nearly three decades peddling AS/400, iSeries, System i, and IBM … The post What Do Secondhand Power9 Machines Cost These Days? appeared first on IT Jungle.
