Hey IBM, Tell the Goddamn truth about what you did to the American Application programmers in the little town of Mechanicsburg in central Pennsylvania! Tell the truth about how you terrorized them into training their replacements from Argentina. Tell the truth about how you outsourced Change Control to China. Tell the truth about how you terminated the AMERICAN programmers with years of systems and applications experience . Tell the truth about how you kicked the talented, professional AMERICAN programmers fluent in
z/OS, PL/1, DB2, and CICS to the curb! Tell the truth about the seasoned experienced line managers in Mechanicsburg, who were replaced by clueless, just minted MBAs who never wrote a line of production application code and who couldn't tell the difference between a flat file and a VSAM file to save their wretched lives. Tell the truth about how worthless Agile Development methodologies really are and how it was used to micro manage the good folks in Mechanicsburg right out the damn door. Tell THE Goddamn truth about how you hate the contemporary American Main Frame employees and contractors who built and maintained your parts planning and Logistics Systems and Automated Ware House System. Tell the truth, tell the truth, tell the truth!

The traditional reason is still the biggest one: massive, high-throughput batch jobs. I have no skills and hardly any knowledge in this area but the organization I work for uses mainframes for processing insurance, billing, and certain medical records information for hundreds of thousands of accounts every day, and although we're very much enterprise-scale we're relatively mid-sized in our space. Banks, credit card companies, and frankly anyone who talks about "big data" still uses "big iron" for some kind of number-crunching.
WTF!? IBM present a electrinc Wardrobe and and the first man said,"....support the mobile generation " I have only Question " How ???
Do you think we are moving this electronic wardrobe somewhere?
I THINK NO !!!!
IBM, always stay on top ever.
I say it, I'm old aged, retired of some "old school software engineering" using IBM s/38 from an old IBM s/36 to refactor some insurances applications, and NO PROBLEMO when convert them from IBM s/38 to IBM s/400, using Pascal/400, Cobol/400, C400, CLP and so many langages usefull on it, of course the bottom-line/langage (conceptual boundary) the MI/IRP,
Thanks Frank G. Soltis ever,
Well I have been programming zEnterpise for 30 years using a language called PL/I. It is a great language that can do anything. You can also use COBOL (of course, most lines of code in the world are in COBOL I think), C, Java. Databases are in my case DB2 for z/OS but on the zLinux part (a SUSE Enterprise version) you can run whatever you want. I have a TomCat server running for a special purpose - works fine.
To do the actual writing of code it is not as old style as people think. IBM was one of the founders of Eclipse and still a large contributor to Eclipse. So for C, COBOL and PL/I you have a cool Eclipse-tool called IDz running on a desktop pc connecting to a server - in this case the server is the z13. Normally you will also have some sourcecode management system - lots of those.
I'm just curious.... when I put aside all of the technical mumbo-jumbo like "I/O monster" and "most reliable" etc., then the question is - when these machines are so great, why are companies like Google using their own server clusters made of ordinary, cheap desktop components then? I think that I/O load on Google's servers is one of the biggest on earth, so why they don't use your Z mainframes? Because of price, maybe? Better serviceability? More simple and scalable design of the clusters? Why? I'm just curious :)
with cheap desktop components, you can organize your stuff to be more reliable than a mainframe, you just need a good estimation of the MTBF of your components and compose the things accordingly. It's just architecture and probabilities. Quite fun by the way.
Yep indeed, mainframes never die! Its just a fact and in many companies just not replaceable. I work in a big banking company in germany, and there is just no alternative to a mainframe :) And its good! Cause we young guys get all the knowledge from the veterans now and its just fantastic. Its not just a pc or a machine, its a legend! To work on mainframes is the best!
Thanks, I had wondered what the top end config on a z14 was. But it has to be equivalent to a lot of servers. There seem to be advantages to the IBM system. Water cooled, quality tested, system wide encryption. One thing I did wonder. I have spent a bit of time in server labs, and did development, and when we needed a lot of storage, we used JBOD unit ( Just a bunch of disks.) If you need more storage for a z series, what hardware is used?
encrypting in such a way that the output (the ciphertext) is in the same format as the input (the plaintext) -- for example:
To encrypt a 16-digit credit card number so that the ciphertext is another 16-digit number.
To encrypt an English word so that the ciphertext is another English word.
To encrypt an n-bit number so that the ciphertext is another n-bit number.
What she means is if you have a field or datatype that is strict, like 16 ints for a credit card. it will respect that the scrambled ciphertext has to conform to the same restriction (in this case the credit card field can only have int values, no letters/special chars/etc), so that the application/system doesn't need to be rewritten to accommodate different data types when the originals get scrambled.
Any computer can be a file server. A Mainframe provides more grunt than a large cluster of cloud based machines with really quick data transfer rates with decent compute speeds - it's the backplane that's the killer imho. It's also specialist kit that needs specialist staff to look after it - most have retired or will be retiring soon, with the exception of a few. Contrast a multi-millionaire's 21st century souped-up
galleon with a jet ski and maybe it'll make a bit more sense.
Wow, they lie a lot. They're not secure at all. and using cute company names for functions doesn't make anything better. Meanwhile the Internet runs on Linux, and their operating system is Unix; renamed. Big Whoo.

The Minecraft server version of the mods eliminates the x86 HW very quickly. Just open the world, flying and Xeon stops managing it for 4 people. Once someone uses the Golden Chocobo server, it will stop managing the world to render and fall. Test 4 users and flights up to 20000 blocks to 4 different world pages.
Cache lookups are quick even for large tables compared to off-die calls.
If you have 400 linux vm environments on top of DASD, MVS, Windows, java platforms, etc... you bet your ass you can cache quite a bit, 2GBs doesn't even seem that much when you think about 700GBs of concurrent code running.
Stream processing and transaction processing where I am taking a billion or so records running the same batch of processes at it. There is never enough cache. When you have 3000 concurrent processes and few TBs of data to run in a span of less then 6 hours, doubling the cache is huge. As far as things like L2 and L3 cache, anything that can cut down on IO calls is a big plus.
If you can maintain a given miss rate, doubling the cache means twice the potential hits and you are still having the same performance impact on the misses anyway.
From what I have heard from my peers some batch jobs went from 6 hours to 3 hours. That is 3 hours of testing that couldn't be done before as they had to wait for the results of the batch being processed. 3 hours across hundreds of applications and testers means tens of thousands, if not millions of recouped productivity dollars.
+Mike Blaszczak Hi Mike, The EAL5 security certification that the IBM z13 has received makes it the most secure. The z13 also has the world’s fastest commercial microprocessor running at 5 GHz, large memory pools, and 4 layers of cache for high performance.

Can someone explain to me why it is that IBM Watson cannot be installed on System Z mainframe hardware? Am I the only person who finds it unusual that IBM's flagship artificial intelligence application, Watson, cannot be installed on IBM's flagship z/OS mainframe operating system when it is System Z mainframe hardware and software sales alone that account for more than half of IBM's business profits? Back in 2007 there were maybe 10,000 or so IBM corporate mainframe installations in the world and that number has been in a very slow and gradual state of decline, which means that half of IBM's financial income will also be in a gradual prolonged state of decline as well. IBM mainframe business hardware sales revenue was boosted in the past by selling special purpose processors such as the IFL (Integrated Facility for Linux) and the zIIP (specialized mainframe processor for DB2 database workloads) and the zAAP (specialized mainframe processor for running Java workloads) that you could add to your mainframe in the same way that race car enthusiasts add nitrous oxide injection to their hot rods , so why didn't IBM management have the foresight to try to develop a similar specialized mainframe processor for handling Watson A.I. workloads (maybe call it the wAAP) and then IBM sales could then use Watson software as an incentive to sell more mainframe hardware to their customers so that they could make more money that they could then turn in to salary raises and bonuses for their employees? Watson currently only runs on Power systems (IBM System p) and the amount of revenue that IBM gets from selling Power systems hardware is such a small fraction of their total revenue that (last time I checked) they don't even report Power systems revenue as a separate number in their financial reports. IBM's competitor Oracle has a flagship relational database product and it installs and runs just fine on System Z mainframe hardware, and you can also install and run several Linux distros as well as Sun Microsystem's OpenSolaris operating system natively on IBM System Z mainframe hardware via LPARs (logical partitioning) and you could even run Microsoft applications on the zEnterprise mainframe via special "System x" mainframe add on blades, *so why isn't IBM's Watson software capable of running on IBM's own System Z mainframe hardware?* To give you an idea of the magnitude of this management blunder: Imagine what would happen if Microsoft announced to the public that their newest latest and greatest piece of software, the Cortana artificial intelligence app wouldn't ever run on any version of Microsoft Windows? How would people react? Imagine what would happen if Apple's management team announced that they were going to come out with a flagship artificial intelligence application called "Siri" but Siri would be incompatible with Apple's flagship hardware products such as the iPhone, the iPad and Mac OS X desktop computers and people would need to buy something obscure and considerably less popular like an Apple Xserve cluster if they wanted to use Siri? What if Google announced that the "Google Now" intelligent personal assistant was incompatible with Android and Chrome OS? Wouldn't it make much more sense for IBM to tell their existing mainframe customers that if they upgrade to the latest and greatest z/OS operating system and the latest System Z mainframe hardware that they would then become eligible for some kind of discount on licensing for Watson applications that would be able to run on the mainframe hardware that they just spent a huge amount of money on? That is pretty much how Microsoft does business and Microsoft has been consistently beating up IBM and taking their lunch money ever since Jack Sams hired Microsoft to provide a BASIC compiler and a DOS (Disk Operating System) for the first IBM PC in 1981 as part of "Project Chess".
+Anon Ymous I guess Watson platform has been tailored from scratch. Maybe it can be ported to the mainframe, but I guess that IBMs "big brains" behind the project did the math and discarded the idea...
+Michael DeltaHawk 247050 Their main users are banks, insurance companies and airlines. Regarding cost, it can range from under 100k to more than 10m dollars, depending on OS, licensing, special purpose coprocessors... and is not only TCA, you also will throw it a nice ammount of money every year in support and licensing fees. That said, it is the most reliable, secure and mature platform that money can buy.
we make the cabinets where i work from sheet metal to painted and ready for electronics. the doors are lined with sound dampening foam and dedicated ductwork for smooth efficent airflow. the front design of triangles is the most time consuming process to weld and must be done by hand by expiranced ss tig welders. i do wish the front was lit with blue rgb instead of just being stickers in the small gaps. still they are a stunning design and i want one scaled down for a desktop pc.
+Steven Polley All of the data centers I've been in have been so loud that I doubt the doors would make much of a difference. Typically, everything in the room (the switches, enclosures, etc.) has really noisy fans in them. I always wear ear muffs in them.
I know. But in the data centers I've worked at, we always just take the doors off. There's usually a rod in the hinge that you can slide out. The doors just get in the way and the doors to the server rooms I've been in are always locked. So, unless you have to lock the front doors to the rack to keep out intruders, they're not really necessary. That's all I was saying.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
