New Mainframe Products
While Google introduces their new Chrome OS (which I’m hearing will be widely available in one year? Did I mishear that?), IBM announced 10 new products today to help companies using IBM System z mainframe technology.
The new software products help companies lower their application management costs by optimizing their System z mainframes to handle more workloads (vis a vis server consolidation).
One of the unique capabilities of mainframes are they can host many application services on one system, which has helped System z achieve one of the industry’s lowest application costs per user.
Minimal application costs are muy importante for companies which rely on multiple applications to run their business.
The new products include IMS 11, several new products from WebSphere, as well as IBM Problem Determination tools and Rational development tools.
