Leverage Linux on the mainframe for a true business advantage Covers zSeries and S/ mainframes Contains over pages of reference material Includes detailed examples and maximization techniques The complete - Selection from Linux® on the Mainframe [Book]. Both the Linux and the mainframe communities are understandably interested in the unique concepts and benefits of Linux on the mainframe. In this book, we define mainframe as being IBM's enterprise servers, that is, S/ and zSeries servers. This guide is for anyone seeking technical or market insight regarding Linux on the mainframe. I have been anticipating a decent book on using linux on a mainframe for several years. Being a practitioner in the art of adding value to legacy (circa ) mainframe applications which IS departments are frightened of moving to more modern environments, it has struck me that there is a huge market for such a book/5. Get this from a library! Linux on the mainframe. [John Eilert;] -- Annotation Leverage Linux on the mainframe for a true business advantageCovers zSeries and S/ mainframesContains over pages of reference materialIncludes detailed examples and maximization.

This book adopts a cookbook format that provides a concise, repeatable set of procedures for installing and configuring z/VM in a logical partition (LPAR) and then installing and customizing Linux. You need an IBM System z LPAR with the associated resources, z/VM V media, and a Linux distribution. Linux on IBM Z (or Linux on Z for short, and previously Linux on z Systems) is the collective term for the Linux operating system compiled to run on IBM mainframes, especially IBM Z and IBM LinuxONE servers. Similar terms which imply the same meaning are Linux on zEnterprise, Linux on zSeries, Linux/, Linux/x, etc. The terms zLinux or z/Linux are also sometimes used, . On the Linux on Z side, ADE, announced in , is used to detect "anomalous time slices and messages in Linux logs" so that they can be analyzed alongside other mainframe logs. In , the z14 was released, and LinuxONE Rockhopper II and Emperor II were introduced. Besides COBOL, this book presents the IBM products that every mainframe programmer needs to know including TSO, ISPF, OS/ JCL, VSAM Access Method Services, CICS, and DB2.

To get a real picture of how Linux got to the mainframe, I'll take you back in time. The first IBM mainframe, the IBM System/, was introduced in This book series assumes that you are generally familiar with z Systems technology and terminology. It does not assume an in-depth understanding of z/VM or Linux. It is written for those individuals who want to start quickly with z/VM and Linux on the mainframe, and get virtual servers up and running in a short time (days, not weeks or months).
