Linux and related applications running on IBM S/390 and zSeries mainframe hardware
SNA builds, services, and supports many open source packages for its clients. The following tables describe the current portfolio of open source software. In many cases multiple releases of packages are available but only the latest are listed here. Packages built for ClefOS will also work on RHEL.
Recently Sine Nomine Associates engineer Neale Ferguson had the opportunity to introduce ClefOS (Commercial-grade Linux on Enterprise Foundations Operating System) to users of Linux on System z. The article appears on the blog Mainframe Debate.
Our Team Invented the Virtual Server Farm
Sine Nomine Associates introduced the concept of the virtual server farm using Linux on the S/390 IBM mainframe. Since then, our team has “not looked back,” developing applications for cloning Linux images, refining procedures for large-scale implementations, and sharing our knowledge at trade shows, at conferences, and in professional magazines.

ClefOS for System z provides a Linux distribution for System z intended to fill the need for a royalty and license free operating system for appliance and utility system construction by anyone wishing to deploy applications on System z hardware.

In the tradition of releasing something nifty to the community as a holiday gift (the subject line is the historical reference to the annual posting of such gifts to the venerable VMSHARE conference from long, long ago), SNA is pleased to provide two gifts to the community for 2013.
