Running a x86 Operating Systems on System z ??
Read this Mantissa Corporation breaking news.
What if you could...
Create a PC in 15 seconds,
Have it operational in 15 minutes,
and use it on either a long or short-term basis, without worrying about depreciation?
How much would you save if...
You could run any x86 operating system from one centralized mainframe location,
Run thousands of PC's virtually from one mainframe,
And have all the functionality of a PC without having to keep or maintain an actual PC?
You can !
It can all be accomplished with a single product -- z86VM,
the cornerstone of Mantissa's Utility Virtualization™ product line.
Put simply, z86VM allows you to virtualize and run x86-based operating systems
(e.g. Windows®) on mainframe systems.
Take a look at our demonstration video of an OS up and running on z/VM or on YouTube,
and feel free to read more about the development process on the z86VM at "www.mantissa.com" .
z86VM enables unaltered 32 bit Intel operating systems to run on System z
under z/VM (*).
note(*): Pre-requisites: z/VM 6.2 or 6.3 and a CPU shipped on or after the introduction of the z196.
