IBM IBM just announced a new line of z9 mainframes and new version of their operating systems. This time the focus is on security. There is an interesting news article from Reuters: Analyst Bob Djurdjevic of Phoenix-based Annex Research said key selling points of the z9 mainframe are not that it is faster and cheaper -- something it has been becoming for decades -- but rather the mix of hardware and software that give customers control over machines.
