STRENGTH
in Collaboration
Linux on z Systems accelerates new and traditional workloads
By Shirley S. Savage k Illustration by Atelier Olschinsky

avvy businesses know that
tackling challenges requires
IT strategies that serve
today's needs and provide room
to grow to handle future demand.
They also know that embracing
open-source solutions is a smart
way to add capabilities.
Clients with mainframe environments are well-positioned to
take advantage of new opportunities because of the IBM z Systems*
platform's capability to run both
z/OS* and Linux*.
New opportunities often
require new workloads. Because
z Systems can run multiple
workloads in parallel on both
Linux and z Systems OSes,
clients can add new open-source
workloads with Linux while
continuing to support traditional
workloads with z/OS, z/TPF or
z/VSE*. This provides a great
opportunity for fast-growing
cloud deployment as well.
Mainframe clients can run their
internal services in a cloud,
and service providers can easily
become cloud providers.

S

Enabling Cloud
The mainframe is in the
forefront of cloud innovation, says Ingo Adlung, IBM
Distinguished Engineer, chief
architect and CTO, z Systems virtualization and Linux.
Mainframe clients wanting to
deliver cloud services find that
combining z Systems and Linux
provides the necessary foundation. Using z Systems, clients can
leverage the mainframe to provide
cloud services based on systems of
record (SoRs).
"IBM will help clients transform
themselves from traditional IT service providers to service providers
in the cloud with software-as-aservice or platform-as-a-service
capabilities," he says. Further,
IBM's work with OpenStack
benefits any company moving to
the cloud.
IBM works closely with its
Linux distribution partners-
Canonical, Red Hat and SUSE-to
serve client requirements for
cloud and related technologies
such as Kernel-based VM (KVM),
