The next-generation System z server is more than just a fast, scalable solution

BY NATAL IE BOIKE

I

n July, IBM announced the next generation of its System z* server line, the zEnterprise* 196 (z196). This new server is unlike anything in the industry today, but it’s more than a

fast, scalable server. It’s the unveiling of a new dimension that may change your approach to IT infrastructure.

mainframes, we’ve always delivered very complex service-level agreements in sophisticated organizations, and done so in a simple way. The zEnterprise System takes this to the next level and to the world of IT in the 21st century.

In addition to the z196, IBM rolled out two components—the IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter* Extension (zBX ) and t he IBM zEnter pr ise Unified Resource Manager—which, when utilized with the z196, will allow customers to integrate and unify IBM System z, Power* and System x* resources to work together as one complete system. IT shops will now be able to install, monitor, manage, optimize and diagnose the assets within a heterogeneous environment as if they were plugged into and part of a traditional System z environment. IBM Systems Magazine spoke with IBM’s Vice President of System z Global Sales Paulo Carvao to discuss how the zEnterprise System will provide operational, business and organizational advantages.

; We’re addressing head-on the issue
of operational complexity. Clients are making more use of IT as part of their businesses, and at the same time IT is becoming more complex. It’s about server sprawl, an increasing number of applications, sometimes a very large number of databases, and how to deal with the associated inefficiencies.

you think about what the mainframe does today and has been doing for the past decades in terms of virtualization of resources, the capability to perform workload m a n ag ement ac r o s s a m i xe dworkload env ironment and t he capability to scale IT in pace with business demands–those are the core attributes of the mainframe that we’re going to leverage in the next generation of System z. These are technologies that companies use today to address the heterogeneous demands of their business.
