The most trusted hardware platform

To compete, enterprises need to be trusted. To be trusted you need to provide the best possible security, reliability, and platform for innovation. IBM® Z® is designed for pervasive encryption, millisecond response times, transactions by the billions, stronger clouds, real-time insights, machine learning, and transparent blockchain.

IBM z14™

The z14 family includes a dual-frame and new single-frame model. These mainframes are made for trusted digital experiences – more security, real-time insights, and able to instantly scale.

IBM z13®

This earlier generation dual frame offered best-in-class security, real-time insights, high performance, and the ability to scale. It was the best mainframe available until the z14.

IBM z13s™

This single frame offered many of the capabilities of the z13 in a small footprint. It was the mainframe for secure cloud and real-time analytics – at an entry price.
