Can you tell me if ASE 12.5.4 will run on the new IBM Power7
machines? I understand we would not be able to use the
virtual features, but trying to find out if the
non-clustered version of Sybase can even be deployed on the
new Power7 architecture.

Yes, ASE will run on P7. Of course, you'll have to get the ASE version
for this platform; a regular Linux x86 version won't run on P7.

BTW-- this question is unrealted to ASE cluster Edition, which is what
this newsgroup is for.

HTH,
