Discussions about server sprawl, rising software costs, going green, or moving data centers to reduce the cost of business are held in many meetings or conference calls in many organizations throughout the world. And many organizations are starting to turn toward System z™ and z/VM® after such discussions. The virtual machine operating system has over 40 years of experience as a hosting platform for servers, from the days of VM/SP, VM/XA, VM/ESA® and especially now with z/VM. With the consolidation of servers and conservative estimates that approximately seventy percent of all critical...

The z/OS® Distributed File Service zSeries® File System (zFS) is a z/OS UNIX® file system that can be used like the Hierarchical File System (HFS). zFS file systems contain files and directories, including Access Control Lists (ACLs), that can be accessed with the z/OS HFS application programming interfaces (APIs). zFS file systems can be mounted into the z/OS UNIX hierarchy along with other local or remote file system types (for example, HFS, TFS, AUTOMNT, NFS, and so on). zFS does not replace HFS, but it is the z/OS UNIX strategic file system and IBM® recommends migrating HFS file systems...
