3. JS20 BladeCenter cluster
CSM is the clear choice here, since install and updates cannot be done for pSeries Linux with
IBM Director/RDM. Recommendation: CSM.
4. HS20 BladeCenter cluster
Has a mixture of Windows and Linux nodes, and is happy with a GUI for an administrative
interface. Recommendation: IBM Director Multiplatform. (Note: IBM Director 4.20 is also a viable
solution for this environment.)
5. Large distributed Intel processor-based cluster that may grow to include pSeries or iSeries
Director would be the right choice because IBM Director Multiplatform will be the general systems
management tool across the IBM ~ brands. Recommendation: IBM Director Multiplatform.
6. pSeries POWER4" or pSeries POWER5"
This customer is running Linux, AIX or a mixture. Since CSM is needed to do install and hardware
control for pSeries hardware, it is the right choice. Recommendation: CSM.
7. Linux on POWER
Since CSM is needed to do install and hardware control for pSeries hardware, CSM is the right
choice. Recommendation: CSM.
8. PSSP Transition
This customer needs an environment familiar from PSSP and will be staying either on AIX or
possibly moving to Linux. A robust and efficient command line will be required. Recommendation:
