Um…that’s a pretty all-ecompassing headline. We mentioned at the beginning of the week The Register’s scoop on the upgrades to the IBM System Cluster 1350 line; they’re confirmed in this release.

IBM logoToday IBM updated the System Cluster 1350 to include IBM multi-core processor-based BladeCenter and System x servers, IBM System Storage and networking technologies from Cisco, SMC and Voltaire. The new systems include Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor technology to enhance high performance computing with more capability. The clustered system is also designed to leverage Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES), and now supports the SLES10 operating system.

And in that release is news that IBM will offer customers the option to have their 1350’s shipped with CCS inside.
