|Abstract: The latest generation of IBM System z servers, the IBM System z9 Enterprise Class (z9 EC, formerly the IBM System z9 109 (z9-109)) and the IBM System z9 Business Class (z9 BC), is designed to provide an advanced combination of reliability, availability, security, scalability, and virtualization features. The good news is all supported z/OS releases can run on a z9 EC or z9 BC server (all supported z/OS.e releases can run on a z9 BC server). Similarly, all supported z/OS and z/OS.e releases can participate in a sysplex that has a CF or operating system image on a z9 server. The even better news is that most customers are well positioned to use the new server. The System z9 servers have as their basis the technology used for the z990 and z890 family of servers.|
For both the z9 EC and z9 BC servers, a System z9 Systems Assurance and the Systems Assurance Confirmation Form (filled out by IBM) must be completed before the System z9 will ship. See your IBM Representative for details. Chapter 3 in the z9 Systems Assurance Guide describes all software considerations and can be obtained from your IBM Representative.
