Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris IBM and Sun Microsystems are in the final stages of an 18-month-long project to adapt the OpenSolaris operating system to run optimally on Big Blue's z System mainframes. David Boyes, president and chief technology officer of Sine Nomine Associates, a consultancy that handled most of the integration and migration duties, told eWEEK at the Gartner Data Center Conference 2007 that the new IBM-tuned version of OpenSolaris will be ready soon. He declined to be more specific.

I don't believe IBM would want to move a customer from pSeries to zSeries unless it was also consolidating solutions from other vendors onto that hardware as well.

If you think otherwise, then why don't they make it easier?
