    IBM zEnterprise System Mainframe: In the Test Lab

    Date added: 22 Jul 2010

    IBM engineer Joseph Corrado, Marlboro, N.Y., installs a new x86 blade server into a test unit of IBM’s new IBM zEnterprise System mainframe. The new mainframe is the first to manage workloads running on IBM x86 and Unix systems -- enabling the data center to be centrally managed. The zEnterprise System, the result of three years and $1.5 billion in IBM research and development, marks the most significant design change in 20 years for the IBM mainframe, extending the mainframe’s powerful reliability and security features to additional systems in the data center (Feature Photo Service for IBM).
