    Abstract

    There are many reasons why you might want to optimize your servers through virtualization using Linux on IBM® System z®:

    • Too many distributed physical servers with low utilization
    • A lengthy provisioning process that delays the implementation of new applications
    • Limitations in data center power and floor space
    • High total cost of ownership (TCO)
    • Difficulty allocating processing power for a dynamic environment.

    This IBM Redbooks® Solution Guide provides technical planning and an example for IT organizations to migrate from their x86 environment to Linux on System z. It leads you through several important considerations, planning issues, and frequently occurring technical challenges that you might encounter during development and test within the context an x86 environment and new Linux workload deployments.
