    Abstract

    As new hardware is introduced and z/VM virtualization technology evolves, an ever-increasing number of networking options are available to the Linux on zSeries operating system. Depending on when you implemented Linux on zSeries, the networking infrastructure you chose might now be superseded by a more advanced technology. This IBM Redpaper provides an overview of the different networking options and provides recommendations for implementing the latest networking technology available to Linux for IBM eServer zSeries.
