7.6 Summary

On a zSeries machine, using LPAR and z/VM for Linux deployments presents a multitude of possibilities not available anywhere else. There can be substantial hardware and floor space savings from using virtualization technology on a zSeries machine. Virtualization technology gives you a flexible server farm environment that can be easily managed and changed in minutes with a few keystrokes.

The purpose of z/VM's efficient virtualization technology is to:

  • Allow operating systems to run almost as if they were running on the hardware.

  • Maximize the logical sharing of the physical resources such as CPU and central storage.

Much of the appeal of running Linux on the mainframe comes from the ability to run tens to hundreds of Linux images on a single machine.
