Application development

Maximize output with fewer resources

Today, many organizations are leveraging Linux on System z to lower their IT infrastructure costs and streamline their business operations.

Linux offers customers a choice for new workloads through open computing, avoiding lock-in to proprietary hardware or software vendors or architecture.

One of the strengths of the Linux on System z environment is provided by the z/VM virtualization technology, allowing to run hundreds of different applications in parallel on one physical System z server.

To improve your Java application design and coding for virtualized environments, the following paper provides guidance on Java programming techniques that minimize CPU and memory use, helping to create more efficient applications for virtual deployments:

Part of the move to Linux and virtualization on System z is that companies are realizing the value of automating and integrating their software development environments.

The Linux on System z environment offers key functions that help software developers:
