IBM and Partners Bring Grid Computing to Linux on the Mainframe


ARMONK, NY - 31 Mar 2003:

Housing critical grid scheduler and directory software in the high availability eServer zSeries environment can increase the service levels of commercial grids, while facilitating high-speed access to mission-critical enterprise data and application resources.

Virtualization -- IBM's industry leading virtualization technology, z/VM, supports the creation of hundreds of virtual Linux servers on a single box, making it particularly well suited for developing, testing, servicing, and deploying Grid Computing applications and infrastructure.

Server Consolidation -- Grid applications running on Linux on the zSeries can offer cost advantages, particularly for customers seeking to speed return on their investment by consolidating distributed servers on the eServer zSeries.
