Should There Be a Sub-Capacity Processor Model in Your Future?

Date: March 21
Time: 2:00 PM ET | 1:00 PM CT

Historically most installations running full-speed 7xx processor models have tended to stay with 7xx models when upgrading their CPCs to a newer generation. But with growing recognition of the major role processor cache efficiency plays in delivered capacity and aided by several well-publicized success stories, many sites today are giving serious consideration to whether there might be a place for sub-capacity models in their configurations.

Since IBM’s primary zPCR processor capacity planning tool has a stated design objective to only model upgrades to newer generations within the same speed range (e.g. 7xx to 7xx, 5xx to 5xx), how do you evaluate whether moving to a lower speed range would be advantageous for your workloads? In this session, Frank Kyne and Todd Havekost will discuss the attributes that they use to evaluate such upgrades.
