Re: Enterprise Grade Linux - IBM

Interesting ... would be nice to know if it's a "Linux" from scratch or if they are using an existing Linux distribution.

Re: Enterprise Grade Linux - IBM

I saw that.

Maybe, Linux is for the 'masses' - finally.

Re: Enterprise Grade Linux - IBM

Linux has been for the masses for a while now, M$ managed to turn hardware makers into their own monopoly to keep linux from going onto the shelves.

Re: Enterprise Grade Linux - IBM

The Linux referred to in the link is for running on LinuxOne systems, which are an IBM z-series mainframe. So *not* for the masses.

My guess is the Linux they've cooked up for it is "from scratch". Maybe it's a good thing to have IBM involved this way with Linux (but I'm wary of anything they do).

On the other hand, this: http://techcrunch.com/2015/08/16/ibm-te … c89vu:N1fz

"IBM Teams With Canonical To Put Ubuntu Linux On Mainframes"

So maybe not from scratch. Go figure.

From the link:


Linux your way

Choose your distribution, runtime, hypervisor, database, analytics and cloud management tools. It’s the Linux you know and love with the openness, flexibility and agility you need for your business.

Yea, and I'll bet IBM doesn't allow Canonical to put their pop-up adds in there either or The Store - well it is a server so probably not.

Re: Enterprise Grade Linux - IBM

OOPS! I got that wrong I read something about Ubuntu and ads - something like this maybe?

How To Disable the Amazon Search Ads in Ubuntu’s Unity Dash
Upgrade to Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) and you’ll run into a surprise – Ubuntu now shows you advertisements for Amazon...

Re: Enterprise Grade Linux - IBM

While this is nice news - it's not their first foray into Linux.

Dennis Leary did a bunch of ads for IBM back in the day pushing linux on servers and workstations.

Re: Enterprise Grade Linux - IBM

Actually, the Ubuntu stuff is for the hypervisor. You could likely use the distro of your preference for that. That is just what they are packaging into it for their clients. By default it is using z/OS as the distribution. I am betting it is their own in-house solution packaged with enterprise grade tools and kernel parameters, etc optimized for mainframe computing. Anyway, this is large scale stuff such as financial systems, etc.

The Linux environment benefits from the enormous capabilities of the IBM z Systems, IBM z/VM virtualization and IBM Wave for z/VM virtualization management technologies, providing an enterprise grade Linux platform for all kind of workloads - cloud, analytics, mobile, and much more – data center simplification, trusted operations and unrivaled economics. Benefits include:
Enterprise grade Linux with increased economics and qualities of service.
Run hundreds of virtual Linux servers concurrently, with ensured isolation and protection of each virtual server environment.
Consolidate and deploy new workloads on one single z Systems server, which may result in software license savings, management effort savings, floor space and energy savings.
Run a large number of parallel workloads in a highly efficient and economical way is improved into new dimensions.
Learn more about Linux on z Systems
Master IT complexity while improving economics and driving higher qualities of service with the Enterprise Linux Server. It can help you to reduce both cost of acquisition and cost of ownership. The Enterprise Linux Server can provide you the IT infrastructure for enterprise grade Linux deployments, including large scale consolidations that can dramatically reduce the cost of software licenses, and can help you to drive datacenter simplicity, trusted operations and unrivaled economics.
