IBM System z EC12 and BC12 new Mainframe Technology ideal for LUW Apps

 

With the IBM zEnterprise® System, IBM extends the mainframe platform to help large enterprises reshape the IT experience for their customers. Enterprises can also drive intelligent insights, in near real time, to improve business performance and reduce risk. Use of the zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension (zBX) allows integration of IBM POWER7 and System x blades.

The zEnterprise continues the mainframe tradition of providing the most trusted and resilient platform for large businesses. The extreme scalability of zEnterprise can offer significant cost savings on core business processes. Freed resources can be used to focus on developing new services to drive growth. With the IBM zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager, organizations can leverage dynamic and intelligent resource management to simplify operations.

A recent study by Rubin Worldwide1 confirms that mainframe "heavy" organizations grow more efficiently in supporting business computational demands than distributed server "heavy" organizations, demonstrating 39% more upward scalability in that they could support revenue growth with 61% less investment than those that were distributed server "intense".

The new IBM zEnterprise® EC12 has up to 50% more total system capacity, new innovations like IBM z-Aware, security hardened into its architecture, and continued support for a hybrid infrastructure, while maintaining core workload strategies of data serving and transaction processing.

 



 

Highlights


1) Centrally managed, integrated hybrid computing technology

2) Keeping data secure, available and easy to manage

3) Balanced design offering virtually limitless cloud expansion and elasticity

4) Comprehensive security and resiliency built in for highest levels of trust and confidence

 



 

Intro to the MainFrame



Intro to the MainFrame (short overview)



System zEnterprise overview (long)




New technologies for cloud, big data, analytics, mobile devices and social media are redefining the way that businesses will be operating on and IT must be transformed to support these technologies. The shift can offer the opportunity to assess and improve the business model and interaction with the customers, partners and employees. To capitalize on this opportunity, organizations must be able to tap into their data and energize applications without going over budget and all the while keeping everything protected and secure.

The IBM® zEnterprise® System delivers unique value and industry leading capabilities allowing you to maximize the business value of your unique information. Make informed and optimized decisions, exploit cloud delivery models to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs and complexity with Infrastructure as a Service, and use the built in System z security at every level to improve customer trust and confidence and know your IT infrastructure is secure. The IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) and the IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter® Extension (zBX) Model 003 offer a proven hybrid computing design that supports mainframe and the distributed technologies of IBM POWER7® and IBM System x® blades. IBM zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager (zManager) can manage and integrate workloads on the multiple architectures with the simplicity of a single system.

 



 

Migrate to IBM System-z


A new solution approach for consolidation and migration of IT assets based on IBMs own IT Transformation experience. Within IBM, modeling identified significant potential for savings through virtualization on IBM System z. New services from the GTS Server Consolidation and Migration Services leverage product manufacturing concepts and automation techniques to achieve Factory Like production results.

Video on migration




For the last 7 years IBM has provided specialty application engines on System z servers.

1) Integrated Facility for LINUX (or IFL) is dedicated to Linux workloads.

2) System z Application Assist processor (or zAAP) for Java environments.

3) System z Integrated Information processor (or zIIP) for certain data serving workloads.
