What is a z System Mainframe?
A mainframe is the most reliable, scalable, and secured hardware platform.  Mainframes are used to support and process major credit card transactions, bank transactions, and more.  The processing power of one z/14 mainframe is comparable to 8,000 Linux or Windows servers on an Intel or AMD platform.
