    IBM® z/OS® Container Extensions (IBM zCX) is a new feature of the next version of the IBM z/OS Operating System (z/OS V2.4). It makes it possible to run Linux on IBM Z® applications that are packaged as Docker container images on z/OS. Application developers can develop, and data centers can operate, popular open source packages, Linux applications, IBM software, and third-party software together with z/OS applications and data.

    This IBM Redbooks® publication helps you to understand the concepts, business perspectives and reference architecture for installing, tailoring, and configuring zCX in your own environment.
