    Product positioning

    Standard Edition

    Order the Standard Edition if you do not need the integrated middleware, additional hardware or 5250 CPW capacity of the model 595 Enterprise Edition.

    Enterprise Edition

    Order the Enterprise Edition if you need a higher level of flexibility on the model 595. It is featured for customers with dynamic business environments who need to respond immediately to fluctuating, unpredictable e-business needs.

    Enterprise Edition includes a new feature, Enterprise Enablement, which provides one processor authorization of 5250 CPW. A processor authorization of 5250 capacity can be spread across more than one physical processor or partition. The Enterprise Edition includes four Enterprise Enablement features. You may purchase additional Enterprise Enablement features if you require additional 5250 CPW capacity. Additional Enterprise Enablement, which would provide additional 5250 CPW capacity on the server, is available only with the Enterprise Edition

    The Enterprise Edition starts with the Standard Edition content and builds on it. As a total system, it integrates and exploits fundamental hardware and software for e-businesses. It is shipped with advanced tools for managing mixed workloads and virtual workplace software.
