IBM Systems magazine, Mainframe - January/February 2019 - RZ4

IBM is continuously adding
security innovations. LinuxONE
technology has cryptographic
capabilities that enable a single
LinuxONE server to provide
virtual cryptographic domains
for thousands of clients without
having to set up specific hardware
for each one of those. "Users get
hardware protection essentially
at cloud scale within a LinuxONE
server," Jordan comments. "As
encryption becomes more and
more ubiquitous, and built into the
data protection of cloud services,
that's going to become absolutely
essential," he notes.
Data-centric security is becoming an important market focus.
"Data-centric security needs to be
built into every cloud service as a
mechanism to protect the data as it
is being consumed," Jordan points
out. IBM also is looking at extending data protection beyond the
perimeter of the mainframe.
IBM continues to follow emerging
cryptographic technology such as
homomorphic encryption, which
offers the promise of being able to
query and operate on data without
the need to decrypt the data. "Stay
tuned for more on those developments," Jordan notes.

Efficient, Agile and Open
The mainframe's efficiency has been
recognized for years. That efficiency is a big plus when it comes to
current IT and workload demands.
"Everything from AI to new business models to Internet of Things
to blockchain will come down to
who has the most efficient compute
power," Wang says. If companies use
a kilowatt per hour cost to calculate
computing cost, it becomes clear
that the mainframe is very efficient.
"Having a mainframe within the data
center is becoming a leading strategy
for many businesses," Wang says.
Because of that efficiency, organizations continue to choose the
mainframe. "Mainframe workloads
are increasing somewhere between

10 to 20 percent MIPS growth for
companies that run them," Wang
says. Significant improvements,
performance and cost benefits are
driving migration to Z, he says.
The platform is extremely agile
as well. The mainframe has high
reliability and the fast I/O needed
for high transaction throughput
processing. The platform can scale
up very quickly and then scale
down to meet changing capacity
requirements.
IBM has added modern
development tools and practices to
IBM Z. The mainframe can handle
traditional languages like COBOL as
well as widely used languages like
Java* and Node.js. The ability to tap
into typical DevOps capabilities like
automated deployments, CI/CD
and shift left testing enables
the Z platform to be a first class
participant in agile multiplatform
application development. "Clients
can choose to use GitHub and
Jenkins to build up an open-source
pipeline just as they can do on
any other platform," Radcliffe
points out. "Open-source elements
provide additional ways of doing
development and new ways of
using the platform," she adds.

Introducing Zowe
The ability of IBM Z to embrace
open source is demonstrated by
Zowe (bit.ly/2DLme4i), which was
announced in August 2018. It is
the first open-source project based
on z/OS and provides innovation
opportunities by tapping into the
open-source community. Zowe is

supported by the Open Mainframe
Project, which is part of the Linux
Foundation. IBM, CA Technologies
and Rocket Software are original
contributors to Zowe.
"Zowe was developed to help
developers, operations personnel
and system administrators with
open-source knowledge become
productive on the mainframe,"
says Baker. The Zowe team identified several areas that needed
to be addressed including a new
web user interface, a scriptable
command-line interface as well as
extensions to existing REST APIs
and new REST APIs on z/OS. These
REST APIs provide a standard
mechanism to access mainframe
services to simplify how users
interact with the platform while
performing typical day-to-day
tasks. Feedback from users on the
new project has been positive.
Zowe leverages IBM Z and builds
on top of the strong, robust foundation of performance, security and
scalability found on the mainframe.
"It's about changing the experience
and doing so in an open fashion, enabling our vendors and partners and
clients to all jump in," Baker points
out. Within the next few months, IBM
will be announcing commercial offerings built on the Zowe foundation.
At the forefront of innovation for
today's IT environment, the IBM
Z platform is adding new services
and capabilities to meet today's
business demands. Clients can
continue to rely on the mainframe
to support and enhance their businesses and IT requirements.
