Workloads for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for System z
Many customers are migrating their mission-critical workloads to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on System z servers to reduce data center costs. An important aspect of this server consolidation process is determining which workloads are appropriate to run on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for System z. Server consolidation, enabled by virtualization software technology, involves moving workloads from several physical servers onto a single physical server that hosts multiple virtual machines. This paper focuses on the types of workloads that are good candidates to migrate to this platform. The paper will also look at some of the important workloads, such as Oracle, IBM middleware and SAP, which are successfully running on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for System z.
