Which isn’t new.
System z is the industry standard for several reasons. Among them:
Why Customers Say System z Delivers
“We have decided to adopt System z because of its high scalability, guaranteed high security and that it ultimately will be cheaper to manage only one machine instead of many distributed servers.”
