ARMONK, N.Y., - 12 Jul 2011:

IBM (NYSE:IBM) today announced a new server -- a powerful version of the IBM zEnterprise System that's the most scalable mainframe ever -- to extend the mainframe's innovation and unique qualities to more organizations, especially companies and governments in emerging markets in Asia, Africa and elsewhere.  

The new IBM zEnterprise 114 mainframe server follows the introduction of the zEnterprise System for the world's largest banks, insurance companies and governments in July 2010.  The new server, which allows mid-sized organizations to enjoy the benefits of a mainframe as the foundation for their data centers, costs 25%(1) less and offers up to 25%(2) percent more performance than its predecessor, the System z10 BC server.  It is projected that clients can consolidate workloads from 40 x-86 processors running Oracle software on to a new z114 with just three processors running Linux,(3)  and over a three year period, total costs for hardware, software and support on the new z114 as compared to consolidated servers can be up to 80% less with similar dramatic savings on floor space and energy(3).
