zLITE
-

fast and easy access to low cost, short term, preconfigured remote
system environments at current software release levels.



Three environments are available today:


The
zLite z/OS
environment provides a dedicated single z/OS 1.9 LPAR with DB2, CICS, WAS,
WPS, WSB, Component Broker, WMQ, RMF & Tivoli Omegamon and WSIM. The capacity provided
is 4 shared CPs, 4 or 8 GB of memory and 400 GB of storage.


The

zLite zLinux

environment is a dedicated Linux guest hosted on a z/VM partition. The operating
systems offered are SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (64 bit SP1) or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
(64 bit). The capacity provided is up to 4 shared CPs, 4 GB of memory and 14 GB of storage.


The
zLite Oracle/zLinux
environment includes Oracle AS 10g on one Linux guest + Oracle rac 10g
on 2 Linux guests (cluster), 4GB and 4CP per guest.



Access to zLite is accelerated for two major reasons:


The engagement process

is shortened as compared to regular benchmarks as the approval decision
is made at the individual Center level.


The technical environments are enabled through an automated systems provisioning process.





To request a zLITE session please contact your local IBM System z rep who will make the
request
