The market is abuzz with the latest IBM Z and LinuxONE announcements.  The new single frame 19-inch z14 and LinuxONE are here, with air flow, storage and system integrated into a standard rack. That means the ability to process over 850 million fully encrypted transactions in a single system that takes up the space of two data center floor tiles — no special space, cooling or energy required! Engineered with groundbreaking pervasive encryption and IBM Secure Service Container technology allows secure data serving at massive scale, coupled with easy placement into cloud data centers and private cloud environments.
