IBM zEnterprise System Transforms Virtualized Computing
The new systems design combines IBM's new zEnterprise mainframe server with new technology--the IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension and the IBM zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager--that enable it to manage workloads running across System z, and select POWER7 and System x servers. That may not sound like anything that affects you directly, but this concept definitely could. Just as SLI graphics card setups have revolutionized gaming, and just as multi-core processors have revolutionized the CPU universe, being able to thread unrelated hardware together in a similar fashion could potentially have huge ramifications in a variety of computing tasks.
Have a look at the video below. It's not too difficult to imagine this same sort of technology transforming the way average PCs are built and managed.
