System z: Oracle Utility Server

As part of a larger series of papers on the position of mainframe technology in the current IT market, this paper considers the role application consolidation plays in the decision process for organizations that may not be traditional mainframe environments, but are now considering System z as part of larger strategies within an increasingly compliance-oriented marketplace.

This white paper illustrates the strengths of the System z platform for pursuing a server consolidation strategy. It is intended primarily for data center technical managers, architects and Oracle database administrators in small and mid-sized environments who are concerned with realizing the benefits of server consolidation. The audience to whom the paper is primarily addressed is expected to benefit most to either the IBM System z9 Business Class (z9 BC), which is targeted specifically to the needs of customers who may not have previously considered their workloads appropriate to the mainframe; and to users of IBM System z9 Enterprise Class (z9 EC) who are wishing to exploit their existing back-end processes with the servers they are consolidating.
