Day 2 at IBM zSeries Study

June 21st, 2012 - by

Tuesday at the IBM zSeries Study was focused on the specifics of zSeries hardware and software directions and strategy. A very strong message about platform growth and directions that underline the continuing strength of zSeries in the market. Interesting growth patterns – especially in the zLinux consolidation sector.

Fascinating tour around the zSeries assembly and testing building. Very interesting to see the levels of testing that go on for completed configurations in terms of functional and environmental before IBM will let this kit go out to customers. As well as zSeries, the water cooled p775 HPC nodes and racks are assembled and tested here. It’s astonishing how much computing can be put into a rack slot!
