Challenge

The Challenge – Managing Linux Virtualization on the Mainframe

IBM Z and IBM LinuxOne are powerful, reliable and economical platforms for highly virtualized Linux environments. Significant z/VM skills are required, however, to monitor, manage and provision Linux instances and resources. These skills often limited to a select few in the organization. Even when z/VM skills are ample, productivity in a highly virtualized environment may be challenged by limitations of the tools themselves. The z/VM skills-productivity-gap results in less than optimal turnaround times for identifying, diagnosing and resolving issues, and for provisioning Linux instances and resources. There is a need for solutions to simplify the operation of these virtualized environments. Log-On Wave for IBM Z® (Wave) is such a solution.
