he attention
given to cloud
computing
technologies today might
seem ironic to those who
work with mainframes
on a daily basis. Clearly,
people are recognizing
the value of cloud in
terms of delivering
workload flexibility, high
availability and scalability.
They’re discovering
its potential for service
delivery, performance and
cost benefits.
Sure, cloud offers
impressive virtualization,
multitenancy capabilities
and efficient resource
pooling. And yes, it
can provide reliable
security with simplified,

centralized management;
dynamic self-service
resource provisioning;
and the capability to meet
stringent service-level
agreements (SLAs).
People are finally getting
it. But mainframes have
been delivering—not just
promising—these same
benefits for decades.
So where’s the love
for mainframes?
Actually, it’s coming.
More organizations are
seeing that a successful
cloud isn’t going to live
on just one type of iron.
They see that mainframe
technologies—including
the IBM zEnterprise*
System, part of the
System z* product family—

can play a significant
role in delivering cloud
efficiencies to a broad
audience. And they see
that although the ultimate
potential of the cloud
may be genuine, at the
moment, it remains just
that—potential.
Determining where
the mainframe fits
within the overall cloud
infrastructure will depend
on an organization’s
needs and existing
environment. Whatever
role they ultimately play,
System z and zEnterprise
mainframes will be
strong contributors to the
evolution and development
of a successful cloud for
many organizations.

Many organizations are intrigued
by cloud computing’s promise of
service delivery, performance and
cost benefits.
The IBM mainframe’s key
capabilities—security, multitenancy
and high availability—make it well
suited for cloud.
The latest zEnterprise System
technology coupled with the new
IBM SmartCloud Foundation
software creates a highly efficient
and cost-effective environment
that can deliver on the promise of
cloud computing.
