  • You've heard by now that Linux runs on the mainframe and is effectively the same Linux as anywhere else - from Intel to System z servers. The challenge is that there can be a lot of politics around choosing to run Linux on the mainframe, deciding on a distribution and methodology for installing and maintaining Linux and even who will be responsible for the virtual Linux environments. Many decisions and discussions need to be made around processes, tools and solutions to decide if they are 'right' for a virtual Linux farm.   This session will give you a candid insight on how customers around the world dealt with those topics before.  You will hear about how they took mainframe Linux from initial proof of concept to being a strategic platform choice for several important applications.
