Make the best use of resources and maintain high throughput while running multiple workloads
The workload challenge
Your workloads have different, often competing, completion and resource requirements. These
requirements must be balanced in order to make the best use of the resources of an installation,
maintain the highest possible throughput and achieve the best possible system responsiveness.
Why IBM Z?
One of the strengths of the IBM Z platform and the z/OS operating system is the ability to run multiple
workloads at the same time within one z/OS image or across multiple images. IBM Z can best use of
the installation resources, maintain the highest possible throughput and achieve the best possible
system responsiveness. Dynamic workload management, such as the Workload Management (WLM)
component of the z/OS operating system, makes this possible.
Clients have increased workloads by 600% by migrating to Z
IBM Z is known for 99.999% application availability
90% of the world's airlines and 44 of the top 50 banks run on Z
IBM Workload Manager for z/OS (WLM)
Define performance goals for workloads in business terms. WLM will monitor the system and adapt how much resource, such as CPU or storage, should be given to meet those goals.
Designed to simplify capacity management, CPM addresses capacity requirements for short-term workload and processor utilization fluctuations for which On/Off Capacity on Demand or soft capping changes apply.
