IBM z Systems customers benefit from ongoing technological innovations to improve performance, availability and efficiency. New server technology and features demonstrate the valuable capabilities that enable the IBM mainframe to transform your business for mobile, cloud and analytics.
IBM mainframe server technology and innovations
Simultaneous multi-threading (SMT): Get more out of your z/OS and Linux on z platforms with this option that allows two separate processes to run simultaneously on the same core.
Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD): A new set of instructions to support mathematical optimization integrated into our new IBM z Systems and Linux platforms.
IBM zAware: IT operational analytics technology helps identify unusual system and application behavior in near real time.
Shared Memory Communications Direct Memory Access (SMC-D) and Shared Memory Communications - Remote Direct Memory Access (SMC-R): New protocols ideal for improved internal communications and cross processor communications.
Specialty Engines: Processors that expand the use of the mainframe for new workloads, such as Linux on z, while helping to lower cost of ownership.
zEDC Compression acceleration: Augmenting coprocessor compression technology with the zEDC Express accelerator allowing more data to be compressed and still kept active.
Flash Express: SSD memory for the mainframe to improve availability during workload transition and paging spikes.
