Albany IBM Z Council Invitation

Tuesday, July 30th, 8:30 am – 1:00 pm

Albany NanoTech Center of Excellence in Nanoelectronics (CEN)

257 Fuller Road, Albany NY 12203


Successful businesses today are in the midst of a digital transformation.  They are moving to hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments, embracing open source and standardization, keenly focused on business agility and continuity, yet adamant about maintaining the highest levels of resiliency and security. IBM Z customers are at an inflection point: they must embrace these concepts while also maximizing their infrastructure investment. Over the years, they have trusted the “always-on” IBM Z platform to run their business.  Going forward, to achieve their digital transformation objectives, they need to build on that trust by understanding the value of Linux and Containers on IBM Z plus the unique and important role that IBM Z plays in a hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environment.


In this half-day workshop, we present IBM’s strategy for digital transformation and commitment to hybrid cloud and multi-cloud.  We then build on the proven qualities of the IBM Z platform – superior performance, resiliency and security – by expanding the conversation to include Linux and Container technology.  We present the technical and competitive advantages of running Linux and Containers on Z compared to commodity servers, for traditional business workloads but also for transformational workloads (e.g., cloud-native) running in a hybrid multi-cloud environment.  We explore numerous uses cases for Linux on IBM Z – from simply extending a backend database or consolidating commodity servers, to embedding Linux Containers into z/OS and extending z/OS-based microservices with APIs.  Finally, we bring together the full picture of IBM Z with private clouds and multi-clouds, fully demonstrating how modernization of the mainframe is integral to digital transformation and delivers the richest value.  We conclude with a module on Next Steps, pointing the attendees to resources for further information, and providing guidelines on follow-up actions. As usual, the presentations will be supplemented with demonstrations and videos where appropriate, and audience participation will be strongly encouraged.


Our workshop is designed for IT managers and architects who are in a position to help influence infrastructure decisions for their business, and who are looking to exploit one of the best possible platforms on which to run enterprise Linux applications of today and tomorrow.  On July 30th, come learn about IBM’s Linux and Cloud strategy, and how IBM Z running Linux will help you transform your business and generate greater value.
