Linux on the Mainframe

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.
