Virtualization of 700 servers on two mainframes

December 29th, 2006

InformationWeek has an interesting article on how Nationwide has consolidated more than 700 Intel and Unix servers on two IBM System z9 mainframes. Nationwide is running a version of Novell's Suse Linux on the mainframes in VMware and IBM Virtualization Engine software.

I have previously blogged about the IBM System z9 Business Class and its usefulness for virtualization and also about reasons for running Linux on the mainframe.
