Much of the public believes that the mainframe is a dinosaur stuck in the "Mad Men" days, but programs such as MongoDB, which supports Linux on the mainframe, proves them wrong. A recent article, published on Linux.com, discusses the latest developments in mainframe databases.
Sine Nomine Associates has announced "per drawer" pricing for ClefOS, expanding the ability to substantially grow the Linux workload without having to revisit with the CFO for acquiring additional capacity. This change means a much lower price per Linux instance.
Clayton A. Hollister, Senior Design Engineer, has announced that Sine Nomine Associates now has a presence on Facebook and Twitter. He has also created a YouTube channel.
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.
Sine Nomine Associates is proud to provide availability of an updated version of our signed OpenAFS MacOS 10 client installer. As with the previously announced version, this is provided as a donation to OpenAFS.org through the OpenAFS Foundation.
“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.
