Now the open-source OS is central to IBM's mainframe strategy and top of mind for many of its z Systems* clients. The content in this e-book examines the state of Linux in 2015. The cover story (page 4) features an interview with Bryan Foley, business line manager for Linux on z Systems, IBM. In the Q&A, we asked Foley about IBM Linux on z Systems strategy and what lies ahead for the platform. In other articles, we explore: * How Linux on z Systems has become a go-to solution for businesses (page 8) * The plentiful middleware solutions available (page 12) * Why IBM delivered Spectrum Scale on mainframe (page 14) * How the platform supports BI, application development and collaboration (page 18) © Copyright 2015 by International Business Machines (IBM) Corporation.
