Linux on System z

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.

Linux Distributions


Sine Nomine Associates introduced the concept of the virtual server farm using Linux on the S/390 IBM mainframe and our current ClefOS offering allows Linux to run on system z mainframes.

This package contains a CMS utility to format and/or partition disks
for Linux use. The package can be downloaded here.

For ECKD disks the label and VTOC tracks are in OS format and are the
same as created by the DASDFMT Linux command.  The partitioning
information in the VTOC is the same as the information created by the
FDASD Linux command.

For FBA disks the label and VTOC blocks are in DOS/VSE format.
