This part covers some potential advantages to consider when planning your Linux-on-the-mainframe project in more detail.
First, we explore one of the technologies that makes Linux on the mainframe an interesting proposition: virtualization.
This is followed by a look at one of the most important issues for any enterprise using computers to do their business: security.
Next is a discussion of how to set up Linux on the mainframe, including guest definitions, availability considerations, and file system considerations.
Achieving higher availability discusses how availability can be optimized.
Finally, we examine how Linux and the mainframe communicate with the rest of the world, because this is different from what you may be used to with other Linux platforms.
