Server Time Protocol Announcement

The concept of the Server Time Protocol (STP) was first introduced when the System z9 was announced July 2005. Now the successor of the Sysplex Timer is officially announced. The announcement can be found at the IBM Offering Information pages. Though it won't be available until January 31 2007.
There's already a redbook available too : Server Time Protocol Planning Guide (SG24-7280-00).

The same announcement also announces the NRF (Non-Raised Floor) feature for z9 BC. This should be available from November 17 2006 onwards.
