IBM and Oracle are to collaborate on the sale of Linux mainframes based on IBM's System z platform.
“Linux customers and Linux workloads represent a significant percentage of our mainframe growth revenue,” said Jim Stallings, IBM general manager for System z.
Sales teams from both companies will collaborate to present the advantages of the initiative’s offerings to joint customers.
In support of these activities, IBM and Oracle will build upon their commitment and resources in the Oracle/IBM Joint Solution Center in Montpellier, France, along with the IBM Oracle International Competency Center in Silicon Valley.
The initiative’s solutions will be made available with both the IBM System z9 Enterprise Class (z9 EC) and IBM System z9 Business Class (z9 BC) servers.
