The IBM z14® family of servers is available in two form factors. Our dual-frame model provides unprecedented performance while our single-frame model delivers z14 capabilities in a 19-inch industry-standard frame with a lower entry cost. The new model's flexible, space efficient design offers 10 percent more capacity while occupying 40 percent less space than z13s® – making it ideal for the cloud data center.
Simplify compliance and protect your critical data from internal and external threats at low cost, with high performance, and without application changes. Pervasive encryption on IBM z14 offers a data-centric approach to information security. It encrypts data in flight, in use, and at rest to help meet complex compliance mandates while reducing the risks and financial losses of a data breach.
Deliver exceptional service – even during peak volumes
Take Black Fridays in stride. IBM z14 delivers more performance so you can deliver quality service – even at peak transaction rates. This server rapidly responds to changes in business demands by reallocating resources automatically based on priorities and by quickly and efficiently deploying new services.
Ensure continuity of operations with availability built in to every element of the system. IBM z14 delivers 99.999 percent application availability and powerful disaster recovery capabilities. Some client installations have run for over a decade without a second of downtime!
Create value through secure application and data innovation
Discover and expose existing code for rapid and efficient new service creation. Optimize resource utilization and simplify management to drive efficiency. Enable flexible deployment of micro-services, increase services reuse, and deliver efficiency through new economic models. And technologies like IBM Secure Service Container help deploy applications in a tamper-proof environment – safe from internal and external threats.
With z14 you can apply machine learning to the valuable data that resides on the mainframe without moving data. It allows you to take advantage of open source machine learning tools and methods. Gain real time insight while avoiding the time, cost, latency and risks of moving data around the enterprise.
