IBM Launched a New Mainframe that is 18x faster than x86 systems

IBM recently launched a mainframe called IBM Z for protecting the company’s data, as this is one major problem almost all companies are facing today. The code written in IBM Z mainframe helps in preventing unauthorized access. As reported by IBM, more than 9 billion data records have been stolen during the last four years and only 4 percent of the lost data was encrypted. Organizations using x86 operating system are capable of encrypting only 2% of data, where IBM Z systems are 18 times faster when compared to x86 systems. IBM revealed that IBM Z has the ability to manage more than 12 billion encrypted transactions every day on an individual system. IBM Z runs at 5.2GHZ and amplifies the system ability up to 35% for both traditional workloads and Linux workloads. This Z mainframe can support Two million Docker Containers and 1,000 concurrent NoSQL databases. "The vast majority of stolen or leaked data today is in the open and easy to use because encryption has been very difficult and expensive to do at scale," Ross Mauri, general manager of IBM Z, said in the release. "We created a data protection engine for the cloud era to have a significant and immediate impact on global data security."
