Optimized for IBM
Mainframes: SUSE Linux
Enterprise Server for
System z
SUSE, IBM and Marist College began
collaborating in 1999 to port the Linux
operating system to the mainframe.
From Day One, our goal has been
making sure you get the most out of
all your System z resources. Today, the
first choice of many businesses is SUSE
Linux Enterprise Server for System z,
our Linux operating system optimized
for IBM mainframes. It includes features
we developed specifically for System z
to take advantage of, and fully exploit,
System z-specific hardware capabilities
and IBM z/VM virtualization technology.
When you consolidate servers using
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for System
z, you are leveraging the resiliency of
the mainframe, the power of SUSE Linux
Enterprise Server and the hypervisor
capabilities of z/VM. This allows you to
create virtual environments that lower
total cost of ownership, reduce data
center complexity, increase flexibility
and decrease downtime. As the market
share leader for Linux on mainframes,
we ensure that you have access to the
largest number of open source and
proprietary applications and receive the
best support in the industry. Learn more
at www.suse.com/ products/systemz/

An Extra Level of
Assurance: SUSE
Linux Enterprise High
Availability Extension
IBM mainframes are known for their

mean time between failure (MTBF)
design of greater than three decades.
However, your internal policies and
customers' service level agreements may
require even higher levels of protection
for your data and workloads. You can
implement these with the SUSE Linux
Enterprise High Availability Extension.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for System
z is the only Linux operating system
for mainframes that includes these
advanced high availability services with
every subscription-all for free. The
SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability
Extension currently offers you the only
clustered file system on the planet for
Linux on System z, and delivers al lthe
essential monitoring, messaging and
cluster resource management features
in an integrated suite of open source
technologies. Learn more at www.suse.

Maximum Protection:
Geo Clustering for SUSE
Linux Enterprise High
Availability Extension
When you need maximum protection
for a workload that can never have
unplanned downtime, not even due
to a large-scale disaster-such as an
earthquake or a flood-and you have
data centers in different places around
the globe, you can protect the workload
using geo clustering. This extends
the capabilities of the High Availability
Extension across unlimited distances.
Geo Clustering for SUSE Linux Enterprise
High Availability Extension is provided
as an Add-on and is available also for
System z. Learn more at www.suse.

Manage Your Physical
and Virtual Linux Servers:
SUSE Manager
SUSE Manager delivers
best-in-class capabilities that enable
enterprises to comprehensively manage
Linux servers with a single centralized
solution. It provides automated and costeffective software/update management,
asset management, system provisioning
and monitoring capabilities. This helps

Boost Your Mainframe
Workload Image
Deployments: SUSE
Studio
SUSE Studio provides an easy way to
create, maintain and deploy System z
workload images by automating routine,
labor-intensive tasks. You can automate
the assembly of new System z images,
normally a time consuming endeavor,
thus increasing efficiencies and reducing
complexity. SUSE Studio simplifies the
creation, testing and maintenance of
images for System z and leverages the
same easy-to-use interface for building
mainframe workloads and images for x86
systems. Learn more at www.suse.com/

Hybrid Computing:
with IBM zEnterprise
System and SUSE Linux
Enterprise Server
IBM zEnterprise System combines
hetero-geneous architectures into
a "system of systems" configured,
managed and operated holistically.
Complementing this unique hybrid
approach, SUSE Linux Enterprise
Server is the ideal environment for
maximizing capabilities, productivity and
reliability of all IBM zEnterprise System
components. https://www.novell.
