System z: Mainframe computing
The mainframe has always been the IT industry's leading platform for transaction processing, consolidated and secure data serving, and supporting enterprise-wide applications. The new zEnterprise server is the world's fastest, most scalable and secure enterprise system that creates an optimized infrastructure, integrates operational data with analytics, and enables cloud delivery.
IBM continues to modernize and simplify the mainframe platform, while partnering with IBM customers, Business Partners and academia from around the world to build more of the skills that industry demands. We provide resources to teach your students about mainframe computing, give those students virtual access to an IBM mainframe, and help students get jobs with the largest and most successful companies in the world.
