Dundee City Council
Dundee worked with IBM to upgrade its z9 mainframe environment with two powerful IBM System z10 servers, and introduced the IBM XIV Storage System to replace a mixed storage environment. The new infrastructure runs a range of Linux applications and Oracle databases – supporting key systems such as social services 24x7.
Atos Origin decided to implement the new applications in Linux environments running under z/VM on an IBM Enterprise Linux Server (ELS). The ELS is an IBM System z10 Business Class server which uses Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) engines to deliver excellent price-performance.
