"At its IBM Design Center for e-transaction processing opening
in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., IBM last week demonstrated its Linux system
running on the S/390 and hinted that plans are in the works to
introduce versions of its software, such as the Websphere Web
application server, optimized to run on mainframe-based Linux."
"IBM is also testing and evaluating the viability of porting
such products as the Lotus Domino Web server, the DB2 database and
the MQSeries application messaging software, among other packages,
to run on S/390 Linux, says Jeff Nick, an IBM executive. The
company is planning to craft a Java Virtual Machine (JVM)
specifically to let Java applications run Big Iron Linux...."
"Linux [on the mainframe] is a kick-butt Web server," says
David Boyes of Dimension Enterprise, a data center design and
testing firm in Herndon, Va. "You can do streaming video or audio,
and the I/O hauls butt and takes names," he adds."
