CODEC, a multiplatform compression utility (COmpressor/DECompressor), allows the user to compress in one operating system and decompress in another, interfacing the physical format of the file between the same or different environments with regards to file organization, record format, record length and block size. For example, it is possible to compress in IBM's MVS and to decompress in a PC. It is also possible to create on any platform a file capable of self decompressing in any one of the allowed operating systems (DOS, OS2, U*IX, VMS, etc.) with self exploding features.
At the URL www.nettuno.it/fiera/telvox/telvox.htm CODEC multiplatform version 3.21 is available as shareware for most common operating systems. CODEC for Linux is distributed as freeware.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
