    This IBM® Redbooks® publication introduces the latest member of the IBM Z® platform, the IBM z15™. It includes information about the Z environment and how it helps integrate data and transactions more securely. It also provides insight for faster and more accurate business decisions.

    The z15 is a state-of-the-art data and transaction system that delivers advanced capabilities, which are vital to any digital transformation. The z15 is designed for enhanced modularity, and occupies an industry-standard footprint. It is offered as a single air-cooled 19-inch frame called the z15 T02, or as a multi-frame (1 to 4 19-inch frames) called the z15 T01.

    Both z15 models excel at the following tasks::

    • Using hybrid multicloud integration services
    • Securing and protecting data with encryption everywhere
    • Providing resilience with key to zero downtime
    • Transforming a transactional platform into a data powerhouse
    • Getting more out of the platform with operational analytics
    • Accelerating digital transformation with agile service delivery
    • Revolutionizing business processes
    • Blending open source and IBM Z technologies

    This book explains how this system uses innovations and traditional Z strengths to satisfy growing demand for cloud, analytics, and open source technologies. With the z15 as the base, applications can run in a trusted, reliable, and secure environment that improves operations and lessens business risk.
