3.5 Summary

IBM is working to make sure that the mainframe can be used advantageously for Linux. Linux fits the mainframe well because of its hardware independence. Linux as an operating system behaves well on the mainframe. It scales and is able to fully utilize CPUs. Reasons to introduce Linux into your enterprise follow:

  • Linux inherits availability, reliability, and scalability characteristics from the mainframe hardware.

  • Linux is a source of new applications and new technology for e-business. Having new applications on the mainframe means you can use existing infrastructure for testing new ideas. In addition, having them on the mainframe can mean better integration into existing change and problem management procedures and service level agreements.
