Linux on IBM System z Enablement Services

A Linux implementation on the mainframe may be a useful component of an Enterprise Management solution. For example, a Linux partition can be used as a monitoring platform or as a Web server. Sirius Linux Enablement Services on IBM System z include installation and configuration of Linux for IBM System z either in an LPAR or as a z/VM guest without the need for dedicated internal resources. Sirius will also demonstrate the Linux proof of concept by implementing open-source software such as SAMBA for file/print serving, or the Apache Web Server.
