IBM z10 System Volume 53, Number 1, 2009 Click to enlarge
RD 53-1
The IBM System z10 Enterprise Class server is a powerful mainframe system offering increased power efficiency, improved price/performance ratio, and expanded range of business solutions. It delivers high scalability for growth and large-scale consolidation, high availability to reduce risk and improve flexibility, and enhanced security. The 17 papers in this issue describe the design, testing, and verification of the z10 microprocessor, the I/O subsystem, and the packaging design of the central electronic complex. System software and performance are described in papers dealing with reliability, availability, and serviceability, autonomic capability and active resource monitoring, capacity-on-demand advancements, and performance improvements derived through novel software and hardware synergy.
