Today I have news for our customers that run z/VSE in z/VM guests together with Linux on System z servers. Just a few weeks ago there was an announcement about a new product for virtualization management - IBM Wave for z/VM. It provides management, administration, provisioning, and enables automation of Linux virtual servers in a z/VM environment. The product comes with a nice graphical user interface (GUI).
I just got a demo and liked it. The GUI shows e.g. the (network) topology of the z/VM system with its guests. It's a product to manage Linux guests, but it also displays z/VSE guests with its status. You may select a z/VSE guest and can display its z/VM directory. You may even access and display the 3270 console and enter z/VSE commands.
More details are on the web page.
Please let me know, if I should continue to inform you about such more z/VM related topics.
Have a good weekend
