The community speaks

"The new IBM zEnterprise EC12 showcases all of the major z Systems differentiators: powerful processing; advanced reliability, availability and serviceability; enhanced security; efficiency at scale; and most important, the ability to optimally run and manage a wide range of workloads across z Systems and heterogeneous environments.“

- Joe Clabby,
President, Clabby Analytics

"Our two mainframes host 100 virtual servers, replacing at least 50 under-utilised x86 machines....this ultimately means that we're making better use of taxpayer money."

- Tim Simpson,
IT Support Manager, Dundee City Council

“Using Linux and the IBM z/VM® operating system on IBM z Systems, the city created a customized cloud environment which provides a scalable and secure self-service platform on which employees can develop open source applications. The cloud architecture also empowered the general public to create and deploy citizen-centric applications.”

- Gordon Bruce,
CIO of Honolulu’s
Department of Information Technology

“We deployed our production business analytics environment on z Systems within 11 days, providing us with an efficient platform that ensures the flexibility, availability and reliability that our users demand. Creating a new Cognos server used to take months, and now it takes just hours.”

- Adrienne DiPrima,
Manager, Strategic Technologies Support, Miami Dade

"We use the numerous zEnterprise security components to help reduce our overall risk. For example, Encryption on zEnterprise is critical to our company success to allow us to protect customer privacy data while it is stored on our mainframe and while it is exchanged with other parties for processing."

- Todd Handel
Director, IT Strategy and Architecture,
SC Data Center,
Colony Brands
