"This movement is about taking virtualization to the next level and using it as the mechanism by
which you manage your entire infrastructure, allowing you to virtualize server, storage, and network."
-Jeff Frey, IBM System z CTO

"We also take as a given that
your most precious central
store of knowledge is likely
guarded by a mainframe as the
gatekeeper," Meyerson says.
"However, like it or not, you'll
nonetheless be exposing such
data ever more over mobile
networks to handheld devices.
That's where tools such as
WorkLight come into play.
It's a great platform to build
out capabilities that reach all
the way out from your core
mainframe environment to
mobile devices while securing
your connections to make sure

no bad actors tap into that pipe
and capture critical data assets."
The development of these
newer technologies on the mainframe in no way means IBM is
overlooking its core mainframe
technology elements. IBM looks
at virtualization, for example,
as a way to create a foundation
for the operational control and
management of any given IT
infrastructure. By treating servers,
storage and networking as
virtualized services, the notion of
hardware-defined environments
is being turned on its head to
become software-defined envi-

ronments. This allows administrators to dynamically
provision resources using policy-driven automation.
"Virtualization is starting to become a foundation
for the operational control of the IT infrastructure
in its broadest sense. This movement is about
taking virtualization to the next level and using it
as the mechanism by which you manage your entire
infrastructure, allowing you to virtualize server,
storage, and network. That allows you to start
treating hardware as if it's software," Frey remarks.
These types of innovation have enabled the
System z mainframe to thrive, and that concept
doesn't appear to be changing as the platform
continues to move forward.
