Linux on non-x86

mymaestro's picture

Kira's article completely missed the biggest non-x86 IRON of all: IBM system z! IBM has been pushing Linux on its biggest mainframe iron for several years now, and the growth in that market has been significant. While most LJ readers may not have a mainframe in their house, it's a platform that draws a lot of attention, and I think should at least have gotten a mention in an article with BIG IRON in the title!

Some reason the email Announce of the soon to be released issue arrived after the hardcopy magazine? Can't say I appreciate all the embedded third party tracking in the URLs either.

OGG Please!

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.
