Hard Dollar MIPS and MLC Savings for z/OS Customers

IBM’s z/OS mainframes are the best, or in some cases the only, option for critical workloads, yet how to best manage workloads for both efficiency and cost optimization are ongoing issues.

zIIP processors can now be combined with new, specialized tools to enable workloads to be offloaded such that those workloads attract no MLC or ISV capacity based software charges. By using tools that exploit the zIIP engine, organizations could realize savings of 20%-60% as well as other benefits. This paper describes how to realize those savings and benefits, gives examples, and explains the infamous “4 hour rolling average window” pricing model and related concepts.
