With US pricing to be set at $125,000 (USD) perprocessor, zAAPs can help increase overall systemproductivity, simplify server infrastructure, and improveoperational efficiencies, while helping to lower the overallcost of computing for Java applications on the zSeriesplatform.
However, on typical commercial Java applications, according to IBM's analysis, these zAAPs can have anywhere from 50% to 70% of Java instructions run on them rather than on the standard processors.
That's why the zAAPs are going to be offered on the bigger T-Rex zSeries 990 servers, too.
