Linux on z vs. Linux x86: Ensono Provides Answers at IBM Edge 2016
Senior Manager, Mainframe Services
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.
