Innovative Computing Corp. has announced that its Innovative Enterprise Software R8V02M03 is certified for IBM’s i 6.1 Operating System. Innovative says that through this certification, customers can take full advantage of IBM’s significant upgrades to the processor and Operating System functionality.

Innovative says the Operating System, renamed simply i, is the latest in IBM’s System i evolution and is backed by updates to IBM’s Power Systems hardware. This combined upgrade is considered by many to be as significant as IBM’s 48-Bit CISC to 64-Bit RISC change, according to Innovative; the result of more than a billion dollars of IBM investment, this offering signifies IBM’s continued commitment to progression of the Power Systems Family (formerly known as the AS/400).

Innovative says that as a result of the upgrades to IBM’s Operating System and hardware, its customers can enjoy a wide variety of system efficiencies and improvements, including:

  • Re-engineered processor (POWER6);
  • Operating System enhancements utilizing the POWER6 processor technology;
  • Optimized storage and memory management;
  • Enhanced SAN (Storage Area Network) storage;
  • Enhanced internal integration; and
  • Lower total cost of operation.
