S/390 is IBMs most reliable hardware platform. S/390 servers can be partitioned and run different operating systems - separated from each other - at the same time.
Linux brings the power of Open Source Unix tools to the S/390 mainframe. All the current versions of standard Unix services may run in a Linux partition gaining the advantages of mainframe hardware.
Different security zones (WWW, Application-Server, Firewall, Database, and internal life critical applications) may be installed on only one machine.
Linux for S/390 is a new chance to bring the different worlds of enterprise computing together much closer than ever before.
