Today, July 12th, IBM announced the new zEnterprise 114, a new model of the zEnterprise systems that is designed for mid sized clients. We began this journey last year with the launch of zEnterprise as a model for hybrid computing. This marked a significant shift from the traditional mainframe system by enabling our clients to host mainframe and distributed workloads on one platform with a single management system. It's also the fastest and most scalable system in the market place today. Coupled with our software, including Tivoli, specifically designed to leverage the unique attributes of zEnterprise, our competitors can't come close to matching the total zEnterprise solution.
Tivoli software is a major part of this launch. Tivoli has announced a Statement of Direction (http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/rep_ca/1/897/ENUS211-271/ENUS211-271.PDF) for future support of the new zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager API to provide enhancement to the current Integrated Service Management support for System z provided.
