LinuxONE

IBM LinuxONE is the most secure and scalable, enterprise-grade, open-source architecture built for the hybrid cloud. LinuxONE is a mainframe class IBM z-system that runs only Linux instead of IBM’s z/OS or z/VSE.
It is well known that all industries have already stepped into the Linux era, and most of the CIOs and I&Os (Infrastructure & Operations leaders) eyewitness this Linux revolution. Today, everybody is looking for an IT infrastructure ready to grow with the exponential growth in digital innovation and to support the expansion of new markets.

No other Linux servers on the planet are engineered like IBM LinuxONE – pervasive encryption, lightning speed, massive scalability, and great economics. In addition, it was recently sized to fit in any data center, whether you are Government, Bank, or Cloud service provider, with options tailored for small, medium, or enterprise corporations.

The exceptional benefits of LinuxONE can be summarized as follows:

  • The most secure Linux server hardware in the world
  • Highly engineered for high performance and large-scale data and cloud serving
  • Provides the foundation for cloud-native applications and microservices
  • Platforms that can run both Traditional and Open Source workloads
  • Needs much less physical cores to do the same work with the x86/Intel server

Many vendors based their pricing on the software/core scheme, e.g., IBM, Oracle, and fewer cores are needed on LinuxONE, less software licenses are to be acquired, and consequently less subscription and less support costs to be paid.

Why run Oracle on LinuxONE?

LinuxONE delivers many benefits, in addition to its performance, when compared to an Oracle proprietary database system. Unfortunately, the proprietary system is designed to run Oracle Database software only, leading IT leaders to the “lock-in” strategy, an expensive and single-purpose appliance.

Here are some advantages of running oracle Database on LinuxONE:

  • An open ecosystem of optimized solutions – Run RedHat, SuSE, Ubuntu Linux, Oracle Databases, and Open Source DB’s such as MongoDB, PostGreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB…all on the same system.
  • Customizable – Choose server, network, and storage based on business needs.
  • Storage Flexibility – Match with integrated or external storage of choice for an optimized solution.
  • Unlimited Scalability – Start with one compute node and grow into multiple chassis as needed.
  • Decrease the total cost of ownership.

Why run your private cloud on LinuxONE?

The new IBM LinuxONE is designed for the modern cloud data center, which meets the growing workload by unlocking additional capacity through the recent on-chip acceleration. In addition, this capability makes available other computing resources within IBM LinuxONE for defined workloads such as cryptography and compression.

IBM LinuxONE provides a cloud-native ecosystem for access and uses by Linux administrators, developers, and architects to access and use. Now can build, deploy, manage, orchestrate and automate applications and infrastructure on a system designed to be secure and resilient.

With IBM LinuxONE, you can confidently deliver new applications and services by embracing open-source tools and containerization. Red Hat® OpenShift® is available on IBM LinuxONE. OpenShift is a fully integrated platform-as-a-service supporting application built through to deployment. It combines the portability and agility of containers and Kubernetes with the security, scalability, and reliability

IBM Cloud Paks are also supporting the cloud-native experience on IBM LinuxONE. IBM Cloud Paks are enterprise-ready containerized software solutions built on Red Hat OpenShift and help you quickly develop core business applications on the IBM LinuxONE infrastructure in the cloud. In addition, IBM LinuxONE supports the whole cloud-native experience to help you transform and innovate through faster and more effective application development and deployment.
