At BMC, we are extremely pleased that IBM has invested $1B toward improving the z platform and has taken substantial steps forward with the z13. As an ISV, we applaud IBM’s continued commitment to the ecosystem and continued innovation to make the zSystems’ environment a cornerstone for mission-critical processing for years to come.
Some time ago, all of our products were certified to run on the new z13 processor. We are releasing our exploitation for the new Crypto Express 5S, 4TB of real memory, simultaneous multithreading, PCI Express metrics, and new SMF record collection throughout the month of April. Our capacity planning products are updated with the new hardware tables, and our Cost Analyzer product is being updated to support the recently released IBM discount models.
As IBM continues to deliver new features and enhancements, which are planned through the release of z/OS 2.2, BMC will proudly offer toleration and exploitation in our products. BMC has a rich history of supporting this platform and helping our customers derive the highest value possible from zSystems.
