How Many Linux Systems Can Dance on A Single S/390?

The VM operating system allows many hundreds, or even thousands, of Linux images to run simultaneously in their own virtual machines on a single IBM S/390 or zSeries mainframe. In this presentation, David Boyes examines what happens when the number of running Linux images is pushed to its extreme limits. A history of the widely-known "Test Plan Charlie" and lesser-known "Test Plan Omega" demonstrations is included in the presentation.
