IBM Announce Withdrawal of POWER7+

From 20th November 2015 – IBM will withdraw from marketing most of the Power 7+ range of Servers, model upgrades, associated features and feature conversions. On or after the effective date of withdrawal, you can no longer order these products directly from IBM. This leaves only the IBM Power 720, p260 and p460 nodes being sold after November 2015.
