Businesses see an advantage to using Linux on z Systems over scale-out servers

The IBM z Systems mainframe is well established today as the invaluable system of Record(S0R) for mission-critical business data and applications. It has evolved over the past several decades to be the IT centerpiece of many of the largest banks, retailers, financial firms and healthcare companies in the world.

Millions of other servers are also in use. Server sprawl-driven by huge numbers of inexpensive, scale-out servers has increased at a phenomenal rate. Since the introduction of virtualization in the mid-2000s, the number of VMs supported on these servers has grown, with IDC reporting that x86 servers are nearing VM saturation (bit.ly/1LxnulL).  Although today’s most critical, complex and compute-intensive workloads are candidates for virtualization, these workloads also have ever more stringent requirements for performance and service delivery.
