9780131014152: Linux on the Mainframe

Linux on the Mainframe explains why Linux can be a perfect fit for a mainframe and how companies can leverage Linux for business advantage. Learn how to reduce IT costs, consolidate servers, and reduce the complexity of your IT infrastructure. Understand Linux on the mainframe basics, whether you are a decision maker or involved in the technical implementation of this solution. Includes an in-depth introduction to the latest developments, trends and technologies around Linux on the mainframe. Two sample companies illustrate how the mainframe supports virtualization, server consolidation and how Linux benefits from mainframe strength like hardware availability or software capabilities for dynamic resource allocation. Examples of middleware and tools that can be used with Linux on the mainframe also are detailed. Linux creator Linus Torvalds said in a keynote address (Feb 2, 2000, LinuxWorld) that he was surprised by the appearance of Linux on an S/390 mainframe and wound up using Linux on a mainframe as an example of the wide and growing commercial acceptance of Linux. "This is not something I envisioned back when I started. I did not envision that a year ago," he said.Notes - see page 3 for an expanded Author Expertise section. LOTM referenced below stands for Linux on the mainframe.
