"IBM today announced that it has nearly doubled the
mainframe's ability to process the highly secure Internet
transactions vital to e-business -- making the eServer z900 the
first server to achieve a record 3,850 transactions per second ---
and introduced new mainframe software enhancements for the world's
most advanced self-managing server.
The company also introduced of the latest release of z/OS, the
flagship operating system for the eServer z900, extending its
industry-leading Intelligent Resource Director (IRD) to customers
running Linux and z/VM on the mainframe. IRD is designed to
automatically reallocate system resources to the work that needs
them the most.
New intrusion detection technology now available in z/OS is
designed to provide early warning against potential hackers. z/OS
Intrusion Detection Services scans incoming data, detects threats
early, and provides added protection against "flooding"and "denial
of service" attacks. Under its previously announced multi-billion
dollar Project Eliza effort, IBM is delivering self-managing and
self-healing technologies across the eServer product line."
