Managing expanding business

Critical Linux workloads


Evidence from users in the real world shows that for large workloads, the mainframe offers power, security, administration licensing and management benefits – but, in an x86 world, many IT departments simply don’t consider running their Linux apps on anything but traditional servers.


IBM’s system z platform offers the opportunity to run Linux workloads in a cost-effective and secure environment, and it’s not just for banks and governments. For theRegcast, Managing expanding business, we were joined by IBM’s John Easton and Tony Lock from Freeform Dynamics, perhaps the last living analyst to recall when mainframes were all there were.

They explained which workloads, and which customers, might benefit from running Linux on System z, and provide the evidence you need to make the business case for your business.
