IBM zEnterprise - Freedom by DesignCanada Dept. of National DefenceFrom mainframe serving to hybrid enterprise hostingBusiness challenge:Here was the challenge presented to John Palmer by his director, Winston Sorfleet: “I want you to find new ways to useand grow the [new mainframe] technology.” In a large organization with a variety of platfoms, competing IT agendas, anda history of diffuse control, this is easier said than done.Solution:The Canada Department of National Defence (DND) path to enterprise hosting with the z196 began with consolidationwithin the mainframe group itself. Palmer brought all three existing mainframes under centralized organizationalmanagement. This entailed the consolidation of all mainframe-related tasks, including:• Hardware / Software / Storage support• Contracting for Software / Hardware / Maintenance• Business Recovery contract management• Role of BR Manager transferred as well• Transfer of all mainframe-related fundingAt DND Palmer certainly encountered resistance. He overcame the resistance by setting up a proof of concept (POC)around Oracle running with Linux on System z.Based on the results of the POC, Palmer could build a compelling business case emphasizing the dramatic licensing costsavings. With the strong support of management, the mainframe group prevailed.Benefits:•  You continue to manage/administer your applications as before—the mainframe is only managing the virtualized hosting platform they are running on.•  Your AIX®, Linux, Power™, and x-based skills continue to be valuable—those operating systems and platforms remain viable and active in the enterprise as do the applications running on them. Thus, your skills continue to be in demand.•  You get rid of platform headaches—the System z team will manage the platforms while you get to do the rewarding work with the applications and users without platform worries.

  • 69. IBM zEnterprise - Freedom by DesignSparda Datenverarbeitung eG SDV runs a number of very large databases within the virtualized Linux environments … The company also relies on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server to support online banking services for the Sparda Banking Groups 4.2 million customers. Working with IBM, SDV deployed an IBM z196 at each of its two data centers, activating six Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) engines on each box. “Our online banking services process approximately 1,200 online transactions per second, so we simply cannot afford them to fail. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, which is involved in a significant part of this workload, makes us confident that this will not happen. Since deploying SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on the IBM z196 we have experienced over 99 percent availability. This proves that Linuxs reputation for stability and reliability is well and truly deserved. We imagine the solution will play an integral role in SDVs infrastructure for some time to come.” - Bernd Bohne, Department Head, Central Systems Technology, Sparda-Datenverarbeitung eG www.novell.com/success/sparda.html© 2012 IBM Corporation
