Atos Origin needed to be able to support large numbers of users and high transaction volumes as well as a high-performance infrastructure that could offer 24x7 availability. They decided to implement the new applications in Linux environments running under z/VM on an IBM Enterprise Linux Server (ELS). The z10 IFLs in the ELS delivers up to 40 percent more capacity at a 50 percent lower price than the previous generation of hardware - a price-performance improvement of up to 65 percent. Running multiple Linux environments on a single ELS can potentially reduce total cost of ownership up to 80 percent, compared to a traditional distributed x86 environment. IBM Capacity Backup Upgrade enables full, rapid disaster recovery while keeping operational costs low.
