The mainframe is alive and well – and with an optimization program from Novell, customers are savings millions of dollars with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for System z.

The program focuses on reducing costs while mitigating operational risk. Savings come from transitioning z/OS-based processing (Java, CICS transactions, Batch COBOL, PL/1) to SUSE Linux running on IFL specialty engines. A typical mainframe (2,500+ MIPS) can start to save millions of dollars annually and have savings realized in under 6 months.

More information on the program is available here
