GHS delivers two IBM z15 T02 mainframes to Compuware!

Compuware installs the 2nd and 3rd IBM z15 T02 mainframes worldwide  


Why Compuware chose the z15

The IBM z15 T02 represents another leap forward in mainframe technology. IBM continues to enhance a system that is already the most technologically advanced business computing platform!
There are several features that caught Compuware's eye:

  • The power boost “Instant Recovery” feature dramatically reduces the time necessary to restart a system. Simply put, this feature reduces the impact on continuous availability by reducing downtime 
  • The z/OS® Container Extensions let you run Linux on Z apps right on z/OS for the first time
  • The z15 continues the architectural feature of fitting into a standard 19” frame, allowing it seamlessly coexist with other platforms in the data center
  • The continued security feature enhancements expand data encryption, isolate workloads and authenticate access

Compuware plans to capitalize on features such as zHyperLink Express, RoCE Express, and OSA-Express. As always, the z15 can easily scale to meet workload demands, as Compuware increases their overall automation and automated testing functions.

It is interesting to note that IBM states that the largest z15 systems can execute up to 1 trillion secure web transactions per day, with up to 190 configurable cores and up to 40 TB memory!
