IBM z Systems

IBM z Systems In the new era of Cognitive Business, data will transform industries and professions to deliver meaningful insights that help organizations stay ahead of market trends and better serve their customers. 

IBM z Systems and LinuxONE are helping drive this transformation as the IT hub of the global economy, handling the most important data and most critical transactions for organizations around the world. IBM z Systems is the core IT system for major banks, retailers, insurers, transportation companies and governments.

The z13, the world’s most powerful and secure system, takes the platform’s capabilities to new levels. The z13 features the world’s fastest commercial microprocessor, able to handle 2.5 billion transactions a day. The z13 also can provide in-transaction analytics to process transactions and conduct analytics at the same time, allowing companies to affect business outcomes as they are happening. The z13 can use its advanced analytic capabilities to provide real-time fraud detection, risk avoidance, prevention of improper payments and tailored customer offers during the shopping experience. 

LinuxONE, the world’s most advanced Linux system, provides the flexibility of the LinuxONE system with the highest levels of speed, scale and security. LinuxONE supports an expanding ecosystem of open-source and ISV tools and software including Apache Spark, Node.js, MongoDB, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, Chef and Docker.
