- 99,995% operational
- very lost cost of operation
- grouping licences at the same place not ESS and passport advantage
- having Tivoli backup working with Power I
- Very reliable
- IBM servers are the most secure for data encryption.
- High cost
- High level of processing.
- Better memory distribution.
- Availability guarantee.
- Improve the interface of the HMC and the RMC connections of the vios via specific ports.
- Allow installing more unconventional Linux versions.
- It's reliable.
- It's fast.
- A solid IDE for editing programs. SEU was simple and solid. Then it became outdated and support for it ended as the language continued to evolve. That's fine. But RDi is expensive and shaky at best, and VS Code, while free, is severely lacking even the modicum of features RDi has.
