z/VM is a high-performance, interactive, multiple-access operating system for IBM z servers. It provides a unique mix of services in support of interactive users, client/server environments, and the capability to run full-function operating systems such as z/OS, CMS, VSE, LINUX, and z/VM itself as “guest” systems. z/VM implements, in a very stable and robust manner, IBM’s leading edge system virtualization technologies, developed over the past 35+ years to provide a state of the art application development and guest support computing environment.
