Virtualize and reset z/OS on x86 hardware for prototyping and z/OS software version to version migration.
Gain the cost advantages of a distributed development and test system while freeing up mainframe capacity for more valuable production workloads.
Achieve higher quality and quicker delivery with a high fidelity z/OS development and test environment (hardware emulation, not software emulation).
Use a preconfigured package of IBM Z software that includes z/OS and middleware, such as CICS®, IMS™ and Db2®, including z/OS components of multiple DevOps for Enterprise Systems tools.
Conduct IBM Z education virtually any time and anywhere by using Intel and Intel-compatible platforms—and experiment without fear of harming mainframe production environments.
