Featured System z offerings
The revolutionary new design of the zEnterprise System addresses the complexity and inefficiency of today’s multi-architecture data centers by giving you the ability to integrate and unify IBM System z, Power and System x resources as one complete system. At its core is the first model of the next generation System z, the zEnterprise 196 (z196). The industry’s fastest and most scalable enterprise system has 96 total cores running at an astonishing 5.2 GHz, and delivers up to 60% improvement in performance per core and up to 60% increase in total capacity for z/OS, z/VM, and Linux on System z workloads, compared to it's predecessor, the successful z10 EC.
The zEnterprise System creates a unified and robust IT infrastructure enabling:
The zEnterprise System also includes two other key components: the new IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter® Extension (zBX) and the new IBM zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager (Unified Resource Manager).
System z10 Enterprise Class Continuing the modular design for flexibility – which facilitates easier upgradeability and availability
IBM System z10™ Enterprise Class (z10™ EC)
The z10 EC is a mainframe built for the twenty first century with expanded scalability for growth and large scale consolidation, improved security and availability and just in time IT capacity.
On February 26th 2008, IBM announced its latest high end enterprise class server, the IBM System z10 Enterprise Class (z10 EC). This latest family of IBM’s highly successful IBM System z mainframe servers builds on the formidable capabilities of the IBM System z9® Enterprise Class (z9® EC). This flexible modular design enables many of the growth, high availability and nondisruptive capabilities that differentiate the System z from other servers.
