We use IBM LinuxONE to effectively manage Linux servers across different data centers on different locations, it's the perfect solution we found for data processing and the detailed insights allows us to know valuable information about our servers.
  • Valuable insights from the reports
  • Scalable
  • Easy to manage different data centers
  • The first installation was a bit challenging.
IBM LinuxONE is a very reliable solution and in my opinion, it's the best one for Linux servers so I would recommend it to every data center running Linux servers because the dashboard gives all the necessary information and whether or not there's something that requires an intervention.
  • The detailed reports
  • Speed and reliability
  • No downtime since we deployed IBM LinuxONE

We are using the platform to support OLTP database workloads across horizontally scaled systems.
  • Great security, if you configure things correctly
  • Performance per instance is above average if you compare to commodity x86
  • Standard templates for targeted security frameworks to assist with deployment
When you need the stability and uptime of a mainframe class system combined with the scalability of Linux private clouds or containers then this is the platform that you should evaluate.

There are a number of flexible entry points to fit within constrained IT budget parameters.
  • Positive increase in system uptime
LinuxONE has better scalability and price/performance metrics.

IBM LinuxOne addresses the problem of providing continuous uptime and resiliency running in multiple data centers. Our business users had a need to have continuous server availability, and also expected us to scale where possible. We have implanted this in multiple data centers. We purchased services from IBM, to help with this effort.
  • Robust
  • Reslient
  • Scalable
  • Cost efficient
  • Excellent support staff
  • We had some milestones we did not meet due to technical issues, we had to get those escalated and finally got them resolved.
Well suited for: Hot/Hot active environments.
  • Customer satisfaction from business units
  • TCOA cost reduction
  • Reduced maintenance cost
The backing of IBM and its customer staff and expertise was very distinct vs competitors
