zIIPs. I am sure you have heard about them and how they can save you money.
But before you jump into the zIIP world, weigh the costs and benefits. Consider whether you can offload MIPS during peak processing times (high return on investment) or during off-peak hours (not so high ROI).
Choose vendor software that can help with offloading work to zIIPs. Be sure that the vendor is providing software that is compliant with IBM standards for specialty engines.
For more information on zIIPs, see this Q&A with Gary Salazar, BMC IMS architect.
Tell us about your experiences with specialty engines.
