  Linux on zSeries - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Linux on zSeries is available in both 31-bit and 64-bit versions, with the 64-bit versions rapidly gaining popularity as zSeries and System z9 mainframes become more prevalent.
Complete Linux on zSeries source code is available from numerous groups on a free and equal basis, and architectural support is now part of the main Linux kernel effort.
Linux is growing rapidly as of mid-2005, and Linux on zSeries is no exception.

 FCP for the IBM eServer zSeries systems: Access to distributed storage
However, this additional layer in Linux for zSeries is unique to zSeries and does not allow it to exploit storage subsystems and applications that are dependent on a SCSI attachment.
The zSeries FCP channel is based on the common I/O platform, as described in [10].
The zSeries FCP channel support opens new possibilities for zSeries and Linux for zSeries with respect to industry-standard Fibre Channel and SCSI controllers and devices, augmenting the traditional zSeries peripheral I/O attachments.

 Providing Linux 2.6 support for the zSeries platform IBM Systems Journal - Find Articles
The changes in the Linux 2.6 kernel just mentioned are of special interest to us because of their impact on running Linux on the zSeries platform (in this paper, our reference to Linux 2.6 also includes the development version 2.5).
During the Linux 2.4 development cycle, our development activities, which were focused on supporting Linux on the zSeries platform, were not particularly well integrated with the rest of the Linux community.
Although zSeries users can download the patches from the IBM Web site and build their own version of the kernel, they usually use major enterprise Linux distributions (such as those supplied by Red Hat, Inc.) that are based on these versions.

 IBM zSeries - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
IBM eServer zSeries is a brand name of IBM which was designated to all IBM mainframes in 2000 with the e depicted in IBM's well-known red trademarked symbol.
The term "zSeries" is still the most popular way to refer to all IBM mainframe servers, probably because the older S/390 IBM mainframe servers will be considered history once support for the last S/390 compatible version of z/OS (1.5) is dropped on March 31, 2007.
zSeries servers are used by IBM customers for business-critical installations in medium and large organizations which need very high availability, where scheduled and unscheduled downtime costs are high, and at traditional mainframe shops such as banks and insurance companies which already have mainframe applications at the center of their business processes.

 IBM to push cheaper ‘Linux-only’ zSeries, iSeries | The Register
According to Peter McCaffrey, director of zSeries product marketing at IBM, the new machines are based on feedback and market success that IBM has had last year in promoting the mainframe as a platform on which enterprise customers can consolidate their Unix, Linux, and Windows workloads.
Both the zSeries and iSeries Linux servers can be configured with commercial Linux distributions from SuSE and Turbolinux; Red Hat is expected to have support for these two boxes, and indeed the entire eServer line, in short order, perhaps by the time these two Linux-only servers ship in sometime in March.
Customers with existing zSeries and iSeries servers supporting their core ERP applications will be inclined to listen to IBM's sales pitch and maybe even run some numbers to see if they could save some money by consolidating Unix, Linux, or Windows applications onto Linux partitions on these zSeries or iSeries servers.

 IT In-Depth: IBM Communications Controller z/Linux
The Communication Controller for Linux on zSeries (CCL) was explicitly developed to emulate the 3745/6 Communication Controller so that the Network Control Program (NCP) software could continue to provide business critical functions like SNI, XRF, BNN, INN, and SSCP takeover.
By allowing customers to leverage their existing NCP functions on a “virtualized” communication controller within the Linux zSeries environment, customers get to take advantage of the virtualization, business resiliency, security and scalability of the zSeries platform while simplifying their networking infrastructure and removing dependencies on aging SNA networking equipment.
Linux zSeries provides the ideal environment for these NCP functions since the SNA communications can be isolated to the data center LAN via OSA Express thus reducing the total cost of ownership of the networking infrastructure.
