DISCLAIMER: IBM z16 with the Crypto Express 8S card provides quantum- safe APIs providing access to quantum-safe algorithms which have been selected by NIST to become part of its post-quantum cryptographic standard. https://www.nist.gov/news-events/news/2022/07/nist-announces-first-four-quantum-resistant-cryptographic-algorithms (link resides outside ibm.com) Quantum-safe cryptography refers to efforts to identify algorithms that are resistant to attacks by both classical and quantum computers, to keep information assets secure even after a large-scale quantum computer has been built.
Source: https://www.etsi.org/technologies/quantum-safe-cryptography (link resides outside ibm.com).” These algorithms are used to help ensure the integrity of a number of the firmware and boot processes. IBM z16 is the Industry-first system protected by quantum-safe technology across multiple layers of firmware. According to Peter Rutten, Research Vice-President IDC, "z16 is the industry's first quantum-safe computing platform."
³ For clients running z/OS v2.5 and common IBM software stack on IBM z15 and higher, users can expect up to 99.999999% availability when the configuration includes an enabled Parallel Sysplex, System Recovery Boost (SRB), GDPS, DS8K with HyperSwap, and best practices.
DISCLAIMER: Based on IBM internal data. Necessary components include: IBM z15 or IBM z16, IBM middleware subsystems (CICS v5.4, IMS v15.2, MQ v9.2, Db2 v12, Websphere, or later), supported by z/OS Parallel Sysplex, DS8000 Series storage, GDPS HyperSwap Manager (HM) and GDPS Continuous Availability (CA). A minimum of three member systems with workload-level availability and redundant components are required, with a third data center serving as a continuous availability Disaster Recovery site. IBM Middleware subsystems must be deployed with redundant regions in conformance with high availability best practices: https://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg248446.html. Other configurations may provide different availability characteristics.
