System z* solutions still lead the way with new capabilities to handle rapidly changing, diverse and unpredictable workloads while maximizing resource utilization and investment.
Businesses of all sizes continue to put their trust in DB2 and System z solutions, seeing daily proof of the unique efficiency and flexibility for supporting self-adapting solutions. Best of all, DB2 on Systems z maintains the true continuous availability, security and scalability that business-critical applications demand. calling it a solution. For mission-critical applications, a system is only as strong as the weakest component. One of the unique characteristics of DB2 for z/OS and System z solutions is each system component is architected and designed together with continuous availability as a key driving factor. This is how customers achieve systemwide continuous availability. It starts with the base hardware level. System z servers are designed with availability in mind. Built-in redundancy, hot swappable parts and Capacity on Demand all are features that
