RFG Perspective: A major breakthrough: mainframes redesigned for the 21 st century – compacted to be
rack-mounted and standardized for data center aisles while still leaving rack space for other components.
This modernization should make the new, highly secure, compact low-end z14 ZR1 and LinuxONE
Rockhopper II attractive to enterprise executives as they build out their next generation data centers,
including their private cloud infrastructures. IT executives should determine if these new rack-mounted
mainframes are the least risk, least cost compute platforms for certain workloads from both the financial
and technical perspectives.
