This analyst report by the Clipper Group examines IBM's System z and makes the case for utilizing these mainframes as hosts for enterprise clouds. The granularity of the mainframe's virtualisation, its shared everything architecture, its memory controls, its internal communications structure, its specialty engines, its energy efficiency and its accommodation of Linux and Java natively are all cloud-relevant, and enable System z to be a natural zCloud.

In this report:

  • The cloud dilemma and the mainframe solution

  • The more that business wants in clouds 
  • zCloud use cases
  • And more!
