IBM and SUSE: IBM z Systems ISV Update - Join the Teleconference 17 January 2013, 11 a.m. ET

Linux on z Systems continues to offer additional opportunities for ISV products and solutions. SUSE will discuss the growing Linux Market opportunity and the opportunity ISVs have to expand their market offerings to take advantage of the solutions that make z Systems successful.

SUSE will discuss:

  • What's new in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for z Systems and LinuxONE 11 SP2 and the 3.0 Linux kernel
  • How SUSE can help you leverage zEnterprise by bringing x86-64 apps closer to the mainframe.
  • New solutions and programs that can help you rehost x86-64 offerings to z Systems and still offer customers a lower cost of ownership than many distributed solutions.

New SUSE offering for IBM zEnterprise System / zBX

Remember? In July 2010, IBM introduced the "revolution of the data center" called IBM zEnterprise System. With the introduction of this new hybrid system, which is designed to reduce complexity, improve security and bring applications closer to the data they need, for the first time it became possible to deploy an integrated hardware platform that brings together z Systems and distributed technologies.

With the recent announcement of the availability of a new component, the smaller, cost-efficient zEnterprise 114 (as an alternative to the zEnterprise 196), as well as the zEnterprise BladeCenter Extensions running Linux on x86, IBM adds a new chapter to the unique success story of the hybrid system. And SUSE brings this success to the next level, honoring the 10+ years of our customers loyalty to the market-leading SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for z Systems and LinuxONE, with a special IBM z Blade Extension offering.
