Informing the IBM Community



questions, questions, questions

The PowerWire story started in 2000 as NEWSWire UK, an email newsletter for British AS/400 users.

Since then, it has undergone a couple of name-changes, iNEWSWirePowerWire Europe and widened its focus to include all IBM Power System server technologies whether they be IBM i, AIX or Linux flavoured.

It also widened its audience. While the newsletter (and, now, independent website) will always have its roots in the UK’s midrange scene, today’s subscribers to our monthly PowerWire email update are based throughout the world.

Why not join them and subscribe today?

Also, if you have a colleague who you think could do with keeping in touch with all things Power i, Power p or Power Linux, why not point them in the way of a free subscription too?

PowerWire is always on the lookout for interesting stories about IBM Power System server technology. Whether you are a system user or a solution vendor, we are always interested to hear about your work.

If you are involved in a Power Systems-related user group anywhere, please contact us and we will feature your news and put your events in our calendar.

PowerWire was published by Cue Communications until 2015, when it was published by NC Communications Ltd.

In October 2023, FormaServe Systems joined forces with NC Communications to jointly produce the PowerWire newsletter and web-site.

We are entirely independent of IBM and always will be. The views expressed herein are completely our own.
