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