IBM Saves $250M Running Linux On Mainframes

1lapracer Re:A very confusing endeavor for us (274 comments)

The blue team was in the other day and I sat through the entire 2 hours of how much money running Linux on the Z would save us. It sounded great on paper. As I was leaving with the AIX guys they could barely contain themselves so I asked what was so funny. They gave me the summary of how the last time several years ago we tried this with results that were similiar if not worse then the perivous poster. We would have spent many many millions to run our p series and or the i series servers. I'm sure we will take another shot at this but, even as a Blue supporter, buyer beware.
