Mass Distributed Server Consolidation: System z Mainframe Linux-on-z/VM Extreme Virtualization Far Outclasses Over-Hyped x86/x64 Approaches
Source: Software Strategies
This paper reviews the scale-out, distributed server proliferation catastrophe, and looks at why IT infrastructure optimization is now a business imperative. It evaluates the role of virtualization, and the varied approaches that have been implemented in server partitioning/virtualization. The paper includes its newer, mass-distributed server consolidation role. Its already powerful strengths are also soon to be amplified by arrival of the next-generation, new IBM z6 System z MPUpowered mainframes.
