Nice IBM sales brochure

While I'm generally neutral on this topic, the summary at the bottom tells me all I need to know about the article. I might have expected better from IBM Developer Works:


This article discussed the offerings of the top UNIX vendors and compared them to IBM. It showed how most of the features available from HP and SUN are already implemented by IBM on a much grander scale. It also showed how IBM solutions are more scalable and mature. While IBM continues to innovate and improve on their offerings, it seems that the other vendors continue to just play catch up. While HP has more offerings and a more mature set of a virtualization feature sets than Sun, it still lacks the scalability and flexibility of IBM PowerVM. While Sun has a new name and has made some bold changes in the past year, they still have a long way to go.

Why this could not be true ?

Did you try solaris zones ? Sun LDOM ? IBM LPAR ?

LDOM is a new product, and they are just saying that IBM LPAR are here and *working* for years dude. Sun is late, it's a fact.
