IBM mainframes are alive, well, and being designed to make the most of Linux.
At The Linux Foundation‘s Open Source Summit in Los Angeles, IBM Z and LinuxONE vice president Barry Baker announced IBM’s newest Linux-powered mainframe: The IBM LinuxONE Emperor II. This is the latest in IBM’s Linux-only mainframe line. It follows up on 2015’s release of the LinuxONE Emperor, which built on the IBM z13 mainframe and its z13 CPU, and its little brother, Rockhopper, which is now moving from the older z12 processor to the z13.
