BMC continues it’s commitment to the mainframe, as promised earlier this year, proudly offering toleration and exploitation in our solutions to provide day one support for IBM z/OS® Version 2 Release 2. By offering day one support, BMC enables our customers to take immediate advantage of the latest z System 2.2 enhancements.
Significant investments were made across BMC’s mainframe portfolio to ensure day one support. MainView takes advantage of the new z/OS 2.2 architecture, RoCE capabilities, additional CMF records and more being offered in z/OS 2.2. To ensure our customers receive a superior solution, BMC partnered with early support program (ESP) customers and IBM to deliver a quality solution that only BMC can provide.
Earlier in the year, BMC certified the solutions to run on the new IBM z13 processor. In addition, BMC shipped mainframe solutions to exploit new z13 function such as, Crypto Express 5S, 4TB of real memory, simultaneous multithreading, PCI Express metrics and more.
