Overall Satisfaction with IBM Z

While my organization is an IBM Partner and we sell IBM Z to customers, we are a IBM Z user ourselves. Many of our internal workflow applications run on the mainframe platform and it has been supporting us for over a decade without having to take a downtime or even an upgrade. Reliability, Security and Scalability are the salient features of the platform. Getting it operational and forget it, it will run the company's business critical applications for you.


  • Availability - Runs non disruptively 24x7
  • Reliability - Never had to take an outage or unplanned downtime . Even it planned outage scenarios, it demonstrates high reliability, even though the platform is over a decade old now
  • Scalability - It runs at close to 100% utilization levels and never hangs or crashes
  • Security - Not even a single instance of it being hacked


  • IBM marketing of its capabilities need to improve
  • With such a great product, the industry perception is it being proprietary and expensive which needs to be clarified
  • Many applications are still not available on the platform to make it mainstream and much more is the perception
  • Reliability
  • Availability
  • Security
  • Manageability
  • Scalability
  • Infrastructure downtime is Zero for unplanned outage and even in a planned scenario the downtime is minimal
  • Is capable of handling unprecidented spikes in workload without having an outage
  • We had evaluated alternate platforms and solutions but this solution is unmatched and even if we ever move, it is for reasons other than the platform capability
Was the natural choice of platform as it was driven by the application requirements

Do you think IBM Z delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with IBM Z's feature set?


Did IBM Z live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of IBM Z go as expected?


Would you buy IBM Z again?


Well suited for mission critical and business critical applications. Customers who have unpredicted spikes in workload can rely on the mainframe as it will scale and even run at 100% utilization without crashing. Highest level of security and integrity. Ideal platform for datacenter in a box. So customers who are constrained on datacenter space requirements can look at this platform .Less Appropriate for customers who can run their requirement on Windows PCs and do not require high qualities of service of high security, reliability and availability
