IBM Z Platform Solutions

IBM Z has always been a leader in reliability, availability, and scalability. IBM Z continues to bring technological innovation to the computing community. Innovations such as Parallel SYSPLEX, Processor Virtualization, and a robust I/O subsystem makes IBM Z an essential to any processor platform decision. IBM Z is configured as 2 machine types. The z/14 which is a 2-frame processor with the ability to scale to 170 Engines and 32TB of memory and the ZR1 housed in a single 19" rack which can scale up to 30 Engines and 8TB. IBM Z is committed to providing unmatched ability to grow your investment seamlessly.

Today, as the world enters a new age of computing IBM Z is well placed to take advantage of a faster and more connected world. IBM Z Secure Service Container allows a client to download and run Firmware/Software Appliances within the IBM Z. Analytics and Blockchain applications can be easily ported and built. An open connected world requires a high level of security. IBM Z has introduced Pervasive Encryption, which, when properly implemented will provide end to end security for your IBM Z computing environment and your valuable data. This high level of security (AES-256) carries forward into your Cloud computing choice.

IBM Z is designed for connectivity as well as synergy. IBM Z strives to augment both Hardware and Software. Examples of this can be found in new features such as Enhanced Data Compression which is a necessity when encrypting large amounts of data. Storage can be connected via FC or FCP. A new feature, HYPERLINK deploys PCIe and connects the DS8888 directly to the IBM Z which delivers lightning fast read performance. Cryptographic hardware has been enhanced to accommodate a Pervasive Encryption strategy which would keep large amounts of data securely encrypted while not sacrificing performance of SLA commitments.

IBM Z can run a variety of Operating Systems simultaneously. IBM Z can accommodate z/OS, z/VSE, z/VM, z/TPF along with Linux and a host of middleware and appliances.

IBM Z is well suited to leverage its inherent strengths and exploit new features and functions to help organizations navigate through an ever changing and more complex world.
