What Ever Happened To The Mainframe Computer?

The Mainframe Lives On in IBM's LinuxONE

If you want Big Blue to run your private or hybrid cloud, IBM has the Linux software partners -- Canonical, Red Hat, and SUSE -- and mainframes for you.

IBM invested a billion dollars in Linux in 2002. Some things remain the same. Last year, IBM introduced LinuxONE, a new pair of IBM mainframes along with Linux and open-source software and services. These new systems are the LinuxONE Emperor, which built on the IBM z13 mainframe and its z13 CPU, and its little brother, Rockhopper, which is now moving from the older z12 processor to the z13.
