'Practical Implications of POWER7 and i/OS 7.1': Logicalis IT Forum, Bath Spa Hotel, Wednesday 24 March

The next Logicalis IT Forum meeting will be on Wednesday 24 March at the Bath Spa Hotel, Bath, with dinner and overnight stay on Tuesday 23 March.

The topic will be 'Practical Implications of POWER7 and i/OS 7.1'.

I am delighted to announce that our speaker will be Gottfried Schimunek from IBM Rochester. Gottfried is a Senior IT Architect and has been taking a lead role in application and product development projects for over 25 years. Currently he is the Program Manager and Technical Consultant for IBM i on IBM Power Systems in the ISV Enablement team. His primary interests are performance measurement analysis and capacity planning of applications. Gottfried is a frequent presenter at customer, user group, and technical conferences around the world.

The draft agenda is:
9.30am Introductions and POWER7 Overview
11am Break
11.15am IBM i 7.1 and beyond
12.45pm Lunch
1.30pm Power System Blade Integration
2.30pm Performance Capacity Planning and Energy Estimation (with short break)
3.30pm POWER7 Performance considerations and optimization
4.30pm Close

We know that many potential delegates will be attending the POWER7 overview in February given by Rod Adkins and Ross Maury of IBM; while there will obviously be some overlap, our focus is on the implications of the new hardware and operating system from an applications perspective (ISV and bespoke).

If you would like to discuss any additional related topic, please let me know.

Please get in touch with me if you are interested in attending, or if you have any queries.
