IBM Systems Magazine, Mainframe Edition - March/April 2012 - 43

ELASTIC INTERFACE TECHNOLOGY enables the rich, reliable,

high-frequency, low-latency connectivity across the multiprocessor system that’s needed for robust scale-up performance.
reliable sample point for one bit can’t be found—for example, because the valid data window is too narrow—a spare bit can be substituted. During operation, error detection and correction logic ensure things keep working well and make adjustments as needed for changes such as temperature fluctuations. The z196 uses EI3 for CP-SC, book-book and I/O interfaces, all running at 2.6 GHz. The longer buses connecting books together can have up to 15 data values in flight on a wire at one time. This technology enables the rich, reliable, high-frequency, low-latency connectivity across the multiprocessor system that’s needed for robust scale-up performance.

The Role of the Mainframe in a Cloud Economy
WHEN: Wednesday, April 25, 2012 11 am PT/1 pm CT/2 pm ET WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Anyone operating a mainframe environment who is looking to optimize their investment. AGENDA: Join our experts as they discuss issues critical to the success of your business:
s -AINFRAME TRENDS BUSINESS DRIVERS AND ECONOMIC OUTCOMES SHAPING mainframe decisions s (OW ORGANIZATIONS ARE EXTENDING THEIR MAINFRAME INVESTMENTS TO SUPPORT mid-tier workloads and leveraging the cloud for optimal outcomes s (OW ORGANIZATIONS ARE ALIGNING THEIR BUSINESS PORTFOLIOS TO THE APPROPRIATE )4 PLATFORM È-AINFRAME /PEN 3YSTEM #LOUDÉ s 4HE CHALLENGES BROUGHT ABOUT BY h"IG $ATAv AND HOW ORGANIZATIONS are meeting their needs

At Its Heart These are just four of the significant technical innovations deep in the heart of the mainframe. They are representative of IBM’s ongoing investment across the IT stack, and the diverse global engineering team keeping the mainframe at the top of the enterprise-computing mountain. Perhaps this gives you a better appreciation of what’s quietly humming away behind that green stripe on your z196.

FEATURING:

IBM Fellow Charles Webb has been with IBM in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., since 1983, and has worked on processor performance analysis, processor design and system design, all on the IBM mainframe platform.
