Why a mainframe?

The mainframe, frequently labelled a technological dinosaur, features some of the most advanced hardware, software, and system integration technologies. The following article lists some 40 leading edge technology examples that are either not at all, or only in an elementary form, available on other server platforms. Please read the excellent paper from Prof. Dr. Ing. Wilhelm G. Spruth: System z and z/OS unique Characteristics.
Today’s IT landscape for enterprise computing is evolving rapidly with data centers having to meet ever increasing demands with flat budgets. IBM System z delivers a unique hybrid computing model that allows data centers to optimize workload deployment on best fit technologies with a common management infrastructure [for both mainframe and distributed system resources] while driving down overall costs. This model integrates data serving and analytics for actionable insight and enables fast and flexible delivery of new services to drive innovation.
