As you consider moving workloads to Linux on System z, you will want to evaluate which workloads are the best fit. Ideally, data intensive or mixed workloads are best suited for System z whereas CPU intensive workloads may be better run on other platforms. On a recent webcast where I was co-presenting with Bill Reeder (IBM Linux Enterprise Servers), we discussed best workloads for Linux on System z which leverages the strengths of System z like WebSphere MQ, Domino, SAP. We also talked about good workloads for Linux on System z which run well on Linux on System z but can also run on other platforms. So, there are other factors (e.g. organizational politics) which must be evaluated in deciding the ideal platform for workloads.
