My current job involves running a large JBoss powered healthcare application on 2 IBM z10 Mainframes.
The Mainframe world is somewhat new to me and adjusting to a whole new vocabulary has been a challenge. Both our ELS boxes will be running RedHat and besides JBoss we will also have a couple of hefty Oracle instances running.
I am also excited about the 2 XIV storage boxes that we have purchased for this project — it will be fun to torture them to see how they hold up.
I’ll keep my blog updated once the fun (read: torture of hardware and software) begins.
