SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for System z is optimized for the IBM System z architecture and is the No. 1 Linux installed on those mainframes. Even with little or no Linux or z/VM experience, customers can install SUSE Linux Enterprise Server Starter System for System z and take advantage of the combined solution’s benefits of consolidating servers and virtualizing Linux, UNIX and Windows workloads.
“Installing Linux on a mainframe is different from installing Linux on an x86 server,” said Meike Chabowski, Product Marketing Manager for enterprise Linux servers at SUSE. “The Starter System for System z makes installation quicker and easier, and customers can get a headstart on their mainframe Linux proof-of-concepts with existing IT skills.”
