IBM has released details of a new top-end product in its Numa (non-uniform memory access) range of Unix servers, the eServer x430.

Nick Enticknap.

The server will scale to 64 processors and supports the Linux Application Environment (LAE), which allows Linux applications to run without recompilation on systems running Dynix/ptx, IBM's Numa variant of Unix.

LAE allows users to scale Linux applications from one Intel processor all the way up to the 64 processors of the new x430 and its predecessor, the E410.

LAE is an application binary interface that sits on top of the Dynix kernel, and allows system administrators to take advantage of Dynix features such as workload management and Fibre Channel storage area network connectivity.

IBM launched the x430 at the Linux World Conference and Expo in New York last week. Other announcements at the show included Domino Workflow on Linux, which provides workflow management tools for Web applications; Linux-based system management software for the eServer xSeries, including a feature for predicting server failures; a Linux-based Netvista thin client, the N22001; and an Itanium-based Intellistation workstation.
