What makes more sense, running Linux on an IBM System z mainframe—or an x86 server?
Ensono’s Keith Miller will share real-world insights into this question at the upcoming IBM Edge 2016 conference in Las Vegas.IT Managers considering z Linux environments will learn how a Fortune 500 communication services provider was able to leverage its z Systems environment to accelerate business applications and optimize resources, while simultaneously reducing costs.
Essentially, running the Linux operating system on IBM System z mainframes provides the flexibility of running Linux with the advantages of fault-tolerant mainframe hardware. Here, some workloads run faster on z Linux than on x86 servers due to improvements in clock speed, memory, cache and I/O systems. For example, IBM z13 cores deliver a clock speed of 5.0 GHz – the fastest commercially available — and tops out at 10 TB of memory.

The Benefits of Application Acceleration and Optimization with Linux on z vs. Linux x86
This highly engaging presentation will dive deep into how a Fortune 500 communication services provider leveraged Linux z for an application performance increase of 18 percent. Costs were lowered by 12 percent, and 100 percent availability was achieved.
