Abstract: Clients are thinking whether or not their mainframes are capable of absorbing the consolidated workloads from their current non-Mainframe servers. This presentation will discuss a scenario where a few Intel based servers were consolidated into an entry level zSeries machine, We will discuss the initial server consolidation sizing, the migration process, the simulation scenarios, and the final results obtained by running the zCP3000 tool against the "z" environment.. The presentation will conclude with the "real world" findings, comparing the projected utilization against the actual results measured by the z/VM monitor with Linux as a guest.
