requirements without making
application or database changes.
Now more than ever, you need
to protect your valuable data, keep
your system up and running, and
maintain compliance. Secure mainframes can help you protect your
enterprise, detect threats, comply
with policy and regulations, and
reduce costs.

COVID-19 Research
and the Mainframe
IBM Z is well suited for AI, machine
learning and high-performance
computing. For the same reasons,
it's well suited for medical research
regarding COVID-19.
Medical researchers are using
AI to reduce drug development
timelines to mere months or weeks.
This is very good news for the
development of both a COVID-19
vaccine and/or treatment. From
streamlining the search for data to
aiding in the hunt for treatment,
researchers are being aided by
AI-powered technologies that will
run on the mainframe.
Machine learning algorithms
are also being used to optimize the
allocation of personnel and resources. The solutions use predictive insights based on accessible
ÈÄ&ÄQÃ%'ÇÃÄ%ÃÇ! ®$ÉÈÃÇÄ%É%QÃ&É%&Ã
results, population density, medical
resources and more.
The bottom line is that mainframes are up to this task because
they can handle multiple bulk
transactions simultaneously, excel
at number crunching and are
capable of handling big data and
analytics. The combination of AI,
machine learning and mainframes
has allowed scientists to come
together to use the power of data
for good.

The Power of Many
Mainframe has always had a strong
community. Now, with the ability to
run open source (including Linux)

2019 BMC Mainframe Survey (bit.ly/38F1poJ)

Recent years have certainly taught us that our
data centers must be both resilient and secure.
And the mainframe meets these requirements
like no other platform.

on the mainframe, this community
has grown and become even more
attractive to developer mindsets.
The Open Mainframe Project
(OMP) is intended to serve as a
focal point for deployment and the
use of Linux and open source in
Ä Ã)"-Ã:ÃÉ ($! É &NÃ/-0ʉ%ÃÄ Ã
open-source initiative that enables
collaboration across the mainframe
community to develop shared tool
sets and resources. To that end, the
OMP is key to driving the growth of
a number of open-source projects
to keep the mainframe relevant.
Two of these projects include:
1. Zowe™ which, like MacOS® or
Microsoft® Windows®, comes
with a set of APIs and OS capabilities that applications build
on. It allows modern interfaces
to interact with IBM z/OS® and
facilitates working with z/OS
in a way that's similar to what
one would experience on cloud
platforms today.
2. Feilong, an IBM z/VM® cloud
connector project that accelerates z/VM adoption, extending its ecosystem and its user
experience. It enables management of the VM lifecycle
dynamically and automatically
through REST API without the
need to manually provision,
manage and destroy guests.
Feilong also provides a
software development kit to
make it easy to develop system
management tools.

Why Mainframes?
With the number of transactional
workloads continuing to rise, the
mainframe's value continues to
increase. And with the modern
mainframe, you get data privacy, security and resiliency all on
an industry-leading computing
platform.
Additionally, emerging technologies such as AI, machine learning, high performance computing
and blockchain are already taking
advantage of the vast processing
power of today's modern mainframe systems.
For that reason, the future of
the mainframe continues to look
bright. According to a 2019 Mainframe Survey1 of more than 1,100
executives and IT professionals
across industries:

Organizations and workers
worldwide are planning for the future, and they know they can count
on the continuity, resiliency, data
privacy and security capabilities
