In 2015, z/VSE celebrates its fiftieth anniversary. In continuation of 50 years of innovation and evolution, IBM is pleased to preview z/VSE V6.1.

Past z/VSE versions often addressed scalability and constraint relief. z/VSE V6.1 will now focus on online processing, security, and networking:

z/VSE clients may want to leverage the IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation to develop mobile applications that interact with z/VSE. Using z/VSE connectors, mobile applications can integrate z/VSE data and applications.

IBM z/VSE V5.2 is available since April 25, 2014

z/VSE V5.2, together with z/VSE's support of the newest IBM z Systems servers and IBM System Storage technology, is designed to help clients protect their investments in z/VSE, grow their workloads, or consolidate their systems. It demonstrates again IBM's commitment to z/VSE clients.

With the exploitation of z/VSE's 64-bit virtual support, z/VSE V5.2 builds upon the capabilities that were introduced with z/VSE V4 (z/Architecture mode, 64-bit real addressing, more tasks, virtual storage constraint relief) and continued with z/VSE V5.1 (64-bit virtual addressing).

z/VSE V5.2 continues the focus on ease of use, scalability, networking, security, and connectivity between z/VSE and Linux on z Systems.
