Neale Ferguson, of Sine Nomine Associates, reports that, as part of an ongoing research project, he has released a Spark container for Linux on System z. IBM announced new support for Spark March 29, 2016 at the Strata + Hadoop World summit.
“Linux on the mainframe has come a long way since it was released as patches in 1999. It has evolved from an adjunct to an organization’s IT environment to being front-and-centre," said Sine Nomine Associates' engineer Neale Ferguson about the recent announcement by the Linux Foundation of new members for the Open Mainframe Project. The announcement was made February 23, 2016 on the Linux Foundation website.
