The new IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) offering consists of the IBM zEnterprise EC12 Central Processor Complex (CPC), the new IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension (zBX) Model 003, and the IBM zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager.

The IBM zEnterprise EC12 CPC is designed with improved scale, performance, availability, and security, making the IBM zEnterprise EC12 an ideal platform for cloud computing, running integrated OLTP and data warehousing, and deploying IBM's smarter computing industry solutions. The new 120-core design delivers massive scale across all workloads and enables cost saving consolidation opportunities. The IBM zEnterprise EC12 is designed to be a worldwide leader as a fast and scalable enterprise system and is based on IBM's newest hexa-core 5.5 GHz application-tuned out-of-order superscalar chip, delivering over 78,000 millions of instructions per second (MIPS) in a single zEC12 footprint. The new microprocessor design delivers a boost to performance for all workloads.

Several new architectural facilities have been added to the hardware. IBM zEnterprise EC12 will be the first general-purpose large-scale enterprise server with a Transactional Execution Facility, designed to help eliminate software locking overhead that can impact performance. Transactional Execution will offer increased scalability and parallelism to drive higher transaction throughput. IBM's Java™ Runtime Environment is planned to exploit the Transactional Execution Facility in an upcoming maintenance roll-up (see Statement of general direction ). The XL C/C++ compiler is planned to provide hardware built-in functions to enable applications to use the Transactional Execution Facility with a PTF at general availability. In z/OS V1.13, the XL C/C++ support is intended to be used for development and testing. The new IBM Enterprise PL/I compiler is planned to exploit the new Decimal-Floating-Point Zoned-Conversion Facility for increased efficiency to improve performance. The Enhanced-DAT2 facility will enable exploitation of new 2 GB page frames by Java and others, offering increased efficiency for large memory structures to improve performance. The new Runtime Instrumentation Facility is designed to provide managed runtimes and just-in-time compilers with enhanced feedback on application behavior, allowing for improved self-tuning. Java is planned to exploit a significant set of the new instructions available on IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) servers. These changes to Java are designed to enhance array bounds checking, and help the system fetch data and instructions operate more efficiently (see Statement of general direction ).

The new IBM System z Advanced Workload Analysis Reporter ( IBM zAware) is an integrated, self-learning, analytics solution that helps identify unusual behaviors of workloads running on z/OS LPARs. IBM zAware is intended to help you to accelerate problem determination and improve service levels. It uses machine learning to help your organization gain visibility into system behavior, helping you to optimize service, respond to problems quicker, and increase availability.

For companies that require superior availability and performance, Flash Express is uniquely designed to automatically strengthen availability and performance, even during periods that stress your system paging, such as during collection of system diagnostics, start of day processing, or other transitional periods.

Cryptographic hardware on the IBM zEnterprise EC12 can help to protect data privacy and sensitive custom applications. Today we are introducing the new Crypto Express4S card, IBM's latest tamper-resistant cryptographic coprocessor. The card is suited to applications requiring high-speed security-sensitive cryptographic operations for data encryption and digital signing, and secure management and use of cryptographic keys.

IBM zEnterprise EC12 is designed with an environmental focus to help improve data center efficiencies. It has a new radiator-based air-cooled system designed for more efficient cooling and improved maintenance. For clients looking to build economical disaster recovery data centers, IBM zEnterprise EC12 offers a non-raised floor option with overhead power and I/O cabling. For greener data centers, IBM zEnterprise EC12 has optional water cooling and High Voltage DC power which allow a bold step into the future of cooler computing without changing the footprint.

With the zBX infrastructure, IBM zEnterprise EC12 can support a multi-platform environment having mainframe, UNIX™ , and x86 technologies in a single system. The zBX can also support the IBM WebSphere DataPower Integration Appliance XI50 for zEnterprise which can be used to help simplify, govern, secure, and integrate XML and IT services by providing connectivity, gateway functions, data transformation, protocol bridging, and intelligent load distribution. Unified Resource Manager brings System z governance to the distributed side, transforming the way resources are managed and deployed. It provides infrastructure awareness to optimize the system resources in accordance with the policies assigned to that particular workload.

In the near future we plan to deliver additional capabilities which include support for image management, advanced energy management, CPU management of System x® blades, and availability improvements with automated site recovery of zBX resources (see Statement of general direction ). As the adoption of hybrid computing continues to gain momentum IBM zEnterprise EC12 will continue to evolve to address client demands and to keep pace with the rapidly changing technology landscape. Our vision includes considering the delivery of new advanced virtualization capabilities, support for select blades, and support for zBXs on future generations beyond zEC12. This is an exciting evolution that will enable the benefit of hybrid computing on IBM zEnterprise EC12 for years to come.

IBM zEnterprise EC12

Business innovation is about transforming business processes, technologies, products, and services to enable growth and gain competitive edge. In facilitating innovation, successful organizations examine their existing business model and the IT infrastructure required to support it. Typically there is a mix of technologies, chosen to provide support for particular workloads and business processes. Being heterogeneous makes sense, as long as there are no issues with management and integration. The IBM zEnterprise System ( zEnterprise ) offers a proven hybrid computing design that can help you manage and integrate workloads on multiple architectures with the simplicity of a single system.

The newest member of the zEnterprise family is the IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12), which is designed to deliver new levels of performance and capacity for large-scale consolidation and growth, support for the next generation of digital signature security support, cutting-edge pattern recognition analytics for fast insight into system health, and new environmental capabilities such as the non-raised floor option on radiator-based air-cooled systems. Well-integrated designs for the IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) and the z/OS operating system yield immediate exploitation benefits, with support for hardware features including Flash Express , hardware transactional memory, IBM zAware, and encryption technologies. Other System z-based operating systems including Linux™ on System z , z/VM® , z/VSE® , and z/TPF also provide immediate support for and exploitation of a number of hardware features. In addition, zEC12 supports heterogeneous platform requirements with the new IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension (zBX) Model 003 and IBM zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager for extending management strengths to other systems and workloads running on AIX® on POWER7 , Linux on IBM System x , and Microsoft™ Windows™ on IBM System x servers.

The IBM zEnterprise EC12 is designed to provide:

The performance advantage

IBM's Large Systems Performance Reference (LSPR) method is designed to provide comprehensive z/Architecture processor capacity ratios for different configurations of Central Processors (CPs) across a wide variety of system control programs and workload environments. For IBM zEnterprise EC12, the z/Architecture processor capacity indicator is defined with a 4XX, 5XX, 6XX, or 7XX notation, where XX is the number of installed CPs.

In addition to the general information provided for z/OS V1.13, the LSPR also contains performance relationships for z/VM and Linux operating environments.

The performance of an IBM zEnterprise EC12 (2827) processor is expected to be up to 1.25 times the performance of a z196 (2817) based on workload and model. The largest IBM zEnterprise EC12 (2827-7A1) is expected to provide up to 1.5 times the capacity of the largest z196 (2817-780).

The LSPR contains the Internal Throughput Rate Ratios (ITRRs) for the IBM zEnterprise EC12 and the previous-generation zSeries® and System z processor families based upon measurements and projections using standard IBM benchmarks in a controlled environment. The actual throughput that any user may experience will vary depending upon considerations such as the amount of multiprogramming in the user's job stream, the I/O configuration, and the workload processed. Therefore, no assurance can be given that an individual user will achieve throughput improvements equivalent to the performance ratios stated.

Managed in the cloud

From consumers to IT service providers, cloud is becoming the preferred service delivery vehicle in the industry. For businesses, cloud computing promises greater business agility and performance at a lower cost than today's IT infrastructures. Further cost savings, flexibility, and performance benefits can result from architecting the IT infrastructure with purpose-built components that help eliminate the traditional fixed-hardware boundaries of CPU, memory, network, and storage.

IBM zEnterprise is designed to create a centrally managed and controlled set of IT resources that provide an ideal private enterprise cloud for the rapid and flexible delivery of high value services. zEnterprise and the Tivoli® suite of service management products offer a robust set of cloud management capabilities allowing greater control and automation of cloud resources. New accounts and existing System z customers alike have the option of building their own customized cloud infrastructure using the function-rich z/VM virtualization management infrastructure. This advanced virtualization combined with zEnterprise's unmatched workload management ensures that business-oriented service level agreements are achieved while driving system resources near 100%. The value derived from IT can be identified through advanced accounting and charge back enabling allocation of IT costs to the business processes they support. These leading enterprise computing capabilities combine with a flexible and efficient resource deployment model which allows new and existing services to coexist and to be rapidly deployed with cloud technologies.

IBM Cloud Ready for Linux on z provides an image and Software-based Cloud Service Delivery with integrated provisioning, monitoring, service catalog and service desk, storage management, and HA, along with services to have a cloud service management solution to get a private cloud on IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) up and running quickly.

Slow down server sprawl

Virtualization on System z offers industry-leading and large-scale IT optimization capabilities to help drive down the costs of managing and maintaining the tremendous proliferation of servers in distributed infrastructures. Single server simplicity means savings from software licensing, simplified administration and management, improved business continuity, and environmental savings of floor space and energy consumption. With up to 101 client-configurable cores usable for virtualization on the hardware level and larger IFLs, the zEC12 can help clients to become more efficient by "doing more with less." Plus the use of integrated blades offers an added dimension for workload optimization.

With these capabilities, many workload types can be easily consolidated onto IBM System z . Linux on System z can run all types of workloads, such as business intelligence and analytics with Cognos® and SPSS® , data warehousing and data serving with InfoSphere® , DB2 , Informix® , Oracle Database and others, collaboration with the Lotus® suite, Enterprise Content Management (ECM), as well as SAP, Oracle E-Business Suite, Java- and WebSphere-based applications.

The IBM zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager brings end-to-end management to this heterogeneous virtual environment, to provide energy monitoring and management, goal-oriented policy management, increased security, virtual networking, and data management, consolidated in a single interface that can be tied to business requirements.

Built for data centers of the future

Energy-efficient IT continues to be part of essential business practices. Business leaders continue to look for ways to reduce costs by minimizing energy usage. Technology can be part of the solution. The zEC12 can help provide better control of energy usage in the data center. A static power savings mode allows for turning off engines that are not being used. And the query maximum potential power mode can help when doing total data center energy use management. Unified Resource Manager monitors and provides trend reporting of energy efficiency for the entire heterogeneous infrastructure. Application programming interfaces (APIs) allow integration between Unified Resource Manager and the broader ecosystem of management tools.

The zEC12 offers solutions that can help reduce wattage and power usage across an entire data center. There is an option for high-voltage DC power, which can eliminate the need for a Universal Power Supply (UPS) inverter and Power Distribution Unit (PDU). Top exit I/O cabling and power cabling can improve flexibility in the data center by helping to increase air flow in a raised-floor environment. The zEC12 offers a water cooling option that offers energy savings without compromising performance. The zBX has an optional rear door heat exchanger to help reduce energy consumption. And, the zEC12 server can be installed and run on a non-raised floor, a new option for data center designs, particularly for disaster recovery solutions.

Next-generation availability

The IBM zEnterprise EC12, along with z/OS and its middleware stack, have earned a well-deserved reputation for industry-leading reliability and high availability (HA), and the zEC12 is no exception. Many types of planned outages, such as planned maintenance, upgrades, or configuration changes, are avoided through support for nondisruptive configuration changes and dynamic replacement capabilities. Unplanned outages are mostly avoided or their effects are mitigated through robust support or recovery after a failure. This support can help limit the scope of an outage's impact, mask the effects completely, or dynamically restart a failed element after an unrecoverable error. The zEC12 continues to offer fault-tolerant memory through Redundant Array of Independent Memory (RAIM) to support memory availability.

Flash Express is designed to help improve availability and handling of paging workload spikes when running z/OS V1.13 with the planned z/OS V1R13 RSM Enablement Offering web deliverable. Using Flash Express can help availability by reducing latency from paging delays that can occur at the start of the workday or during other transitional periods. It is also designed to help eliminate delays that can occur when collecting diagnostic data during failures. Flash Express can therefore help organizations meet their most demanding service level agreements, enabling them to compete more effectively. Flash Express is designed to be easy to configure, and to provide rapid time to value.

IBM zAware: With IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12), IBM introduces a new technology, IBM zAware, based on machine learning developed by IBM Research. IBM zAware is designed to use near real-time continuous learning algorithms, providing a diagnostics capability intended to help you quickly pinpoint problems, which in turn, can help you to more rapidly address service disruptions. IBM zAware uses analytics to intelligently examine z/OS messages to find unusual patterns, inconsistencies, and variations. Large z/OS operating system environments can sometimes generate more than 25 million messages per day. This can make manual analysis time-consuming and error-prone when exceptional problems occur. IBM zAware provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) to help you find message anomalies quickly, which can help speed problem resolution when seconds count.

Availability requirements also mean that IT departments must be agile so they can respond rapidly to change. It may be necessary to coordinate changes in people, processes, and technology. The zEC12 continues to build on the zEnterprise capacity on-demand offerings that simplify modifications. Permanent and temporary capacity is available to help satisfy capacity requests that are long-term or short-term (such as capacity spikes or for testing new applications). Defining processor cores as Capacity Back Up (CBU) can help provide reserved emergency capacity for multiple processor configurations. And Capacity for Planned Events (CPE), a variation on CBU, is available when there is unallocated capacity available in a server.

The proprietary service state package

During the warranty period, the zEC12 includes call home features and other IBM proprietary diagnostic support. IBM proprietary hardware maintenance support is available after the warranty period through an applicable IBM hardware maintenance agreement.

Security that lets you sleep

The IBM zEnterprise EC12 is designed for Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 5+ (EAL 5+) certification for security of logical partitions. This means that the IBM zEnterprise EC12 is designed to prevent an application running on one operating system on one LPAR from accessing application data running on a different operating system image on another LPAR on the server.

Many experts believe that the best way to secure information is to encrypt it. Cryptography is in the "DNA" of IBM zEnterprise System hardware, and so is providing exceptional performance and function using Crypto Express4S cryptographic coprocessors and accelerators that are individually specialized to address various encryption needs. On the processor core two kinds of protection are available:

Security for the Internet with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) transactions and secure coprocessing is delivered with a new feature, Crypto Express4S, which is installed into the PCIe I/O drawer introduced previously on zEnterprise servers.

The IBM zEnterprise EC12 meets standards for digital signatures with new support for PKCS #11, which will soon replace handwritten signatures in all industries. This capability will be important for smart cards or other mission-critical applications such as online banking. The IBM zEnterprise EC12 also supports Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC), a modern public-key algorithm that many experts believe provides the same or better security, with much shorter key lengths and less processing overhead, than RSA keys. This technology is appropriate in resource-constrained environments such as mobile phones and smart cards which may have limited space for saving of storage keys. Additional standards for the banking and finance industry, such as ANSI and ISO, are also supported by the IBM zEnterprise EC12.

Enhancements to Advanced Workload License Charges

Coinciding with the announcement of the IBM zEnterprise EC12 server, IBM is introducing three enhancements, called Technology Transition Offerings, to Advanced Workload License Charges (AWLC) for eligible z/OS and z/TPF software programs running on an IBM zEnterprise EC12. The three Technology Transition Offerings are Technology Update Pricing for Advanced Workload License Charges (AWLC) and two revised Transition Charges for Sysplexes program variations.

Technology Update Pricing for AWLC extends the software price/performance provided by AWLC for IBM zEnterprise EC12 servers. The revised Transition Charges for Sysplexes programs provide a transition to Technology Update Pricing for AWLC for sysplex customers who have not yet fully migrated to IBM zEnterprise EC12 servers. This ensures that aggregation benefits are maintained and also phases in the benefits of Technology Update Pricing for AWLC pricing as customers migrate.

For information, refer to Software Announcement 212-320, dated August 28, 2012 , Technology Update Pricing for AWLC offers price and performance advantages for the IBM zEnterprise EC12.

Cryptography enhancements for security-rich protection

A cryptographic feature supporting PCIe Gen2 - Crypto Express4S

Crypto Express4S represents the newest-generation cryptographic feature and is designed to complement the cryptographic capabilities of the CP Assist for Cryptographic Function (CPACF).

This new feature resides in the Peripheral Component Interconnect Express Generation 2 (PCIe Gen2) I/O drawer, a native PCIe Gen2 environment first introduced in July of 2011. The Crypto Express4S feature has been designed to provide port granularity for increased flexibility with one PCIe adapter per feature.

Crypto Express4S remains a tamper-sensing and tamper-responding, programmable cryptographic feature providing a secure cryptographic environment. It continues to support all of the cryptographic functions available on the Crypto Express3 feature.

Crypto Express4S PCIe adapter - a coprocessor or an accelerator

The PCIe adapter contains a tamper-resistant hardware security module. It can be configured in one of three ways using the Hardware Management Console (HMC) panels:

  1. IBM Common Cryptographic Architecture (CCA) coprocessor
  2. IBM Enterprise PKCS #11 (EP11) coprocessor
  3. Accelerator

When the PCIe adapter is configured as a CCA or an EP11 coprocessor, it supports the following:

When the PCIe adapter is configured as an accelerator, it is optimized for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) acceleration and clear key RSA operations.

The Crypto Express4S feature is exclusive to the IBM zEnterprise EC12 environment. It is supported by z/OS , z/VM , z/VSE , z/TPF, and Linux on System z . Refer to the Software requirements section.

IBM Enterprise PKCS #11 (EP11)

A new configuration option is available when defining the Crypto Express4S feature as a coprocessor. This option, called IBM Enterprise Public-Key Cryptography Standards (PKCS) #11 (EP11), is designed to provide open industry-standard cryptographic services. EP11 is based on PKCS #11 specification v2.20 and more recent amendments that leverage the IBM Crypto Express4S feature and provide enhanced firmware capabilities. This firmware is designed to meet the rigorous FIPS 140-2 Level 4 and Common Criteria EAL 4+ certifications. The new Crypto Express4S configuration option is designed to meet public sector and European Union requirements where standardized crypto services and certifications are needed.

EP11 supports secure PKCS #11 keys - keys that never leave the secure boundary of the coprocessor unencrypted. The prior PKCS #11 implementation, which supported only clear keys, was provided by z/OS . Key protection was accomplished solely by Resource Access Control Facility ( RACF® ) dataset protection. With EP11, keys can now be generated and securely wrapped under the EP11 Master Key, all within the bounds of the coprocessor. Thus, EP11 provides enhanced security qualities when using PKCS #11 functions. EP11 is exclusive to IBM zEnterprise EC12 and is supported by z/OS and z/VM . Refer to the Software requirements section.

Common Cryptographic Architecture (CCA) enhancements

When the Crypto Express4S PCIe adapter is configured as a CCA coprocessor, CCA functionality supported on the Crypto Express3 feature is available and supported by z/OS , Linux on System z , and z/VM . Also when the Crypto Express4S PCIe adapter is configured as a CCA coprocessor the following new cryptographic enhancements are supported:

Trusted Key Entry (TKE) 7.2 Licensed Internal Code (LIC)

The following functions are supported in the TKE 7.2 LIC:

Support for the Crypto Express4S feature when the PCIe adapter is configured as an EP11 coprocessor. The TKE workstation is required in order to manage a Crypto Express4S feature that is configured as an EP11 coprocessor. The TKE smart card reader (#0885) is mandatory. Two items must be placed on the new smart cards:

  1. Master key material: The Crypto Express4S feature has unique master keys for each domain. The key material must be placed on a smart card before the key material can be loaded.
  2. Administrator signature keys: When commands are sent to the Crypto Express4S feature, they must be signed by administrators. Administrator signature keys must be on smart cards.

Support for the Crypto Express4S feature when the PCIe adapter is configured as a CCA coprocessor. Crypto Express4S (defined as a CCA coprocessor) is managed in the same way as any other CCA-configured coprocessors. A Crypto Express4S can be in the same crypto module group or domain group as a Crypto Express4S, Crypto Express3, and Crypto Express2 feature.

New Data Encryption Standard (DES) operational keys. Four new DES operational keys can be managed from the TKE workstation (#0841). The key types are:

The new keys are managed the same way as any other DES operational key.

New Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) CIPHER key attribute. A new attribute, "key can be used for data translate only," can now be specified when creating an AES CIPHER operational key part.

Creation of corresponding keys. There are some cases where operational keys need to be loaded to different host systems to serve an opposite purpose. For example, one host system needs an exporter key encrypting key; another system needs a corresponding importer key encrypting key with the same value. The TKE workstation now allows nine types of key material to be used for creating a corresponding key.

Support for four smart card readers. The TKE workstation supports two, three, or four smart card readers when smart cards are being used. The additional readers were added to help reduce the number of smart card swaps needed while managing EP11-configured coprocessors. EP11 can be managed with only two smart card readers. CCA configured coprocessors can be managed with three or four smart card readers.

The strategic network connection to the data center - OSA-Express4S

Scalability for the enterprise - 10 Gbps and 1 Gbps over fiber; 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, and 1 Gbps over copper: With multiple link data rate options using fiber optic cabling or copper cabling, you have the ability to maintain an end-to-end Layer 2 network with the newest family of Ethernet interfaces - OSA-Express4S.

OSA-Express4S 1000BASE-T Ethernet: The newest member of the family of OSA-Express4S features is now available to support your copper infrastructure. It joins the other OSA-Express4S features, 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 1 Gigabit Ethernet for multimode and single mode fiber optic infrastructures announced July 12, 2011.

The OSA-Express4S 1000BASE-T Ethernet feature is supported exclusively in the PCIe I/O drawer, with increased infrastructure bandwidth over the I/O cage and the I/O drawer, as well as increased granularity and capacity. Refer to Hardware Announcement 111-121, dated July 12, 2011 .

The channel path identifiers (CHPIDs) remain the same. Refer to the Publications section for documentation.

Channel subsystem enhancement for I/O resilience

The IBM zEnterprise EC12 channel subsystem incorporates an improved load balancing algorithm designed to provide improved throughput and reduced I/O service times, even when abnormal conditions occur. For example, degraded throughput and response times can be caused by multi-system workload spikes, resource contention in storage area networks (SANs) or across control unit ports, SAN congestion, suboptimal SAN configurations, problems with initializing optics, dynamic fabric routing changes, and destination port congestion.

When such events occur, the channel subsystem is designed to dynamically select channels to optimize performance and minimize imbalances in I/O performance characteristics (such as response time and throughput) across the set of channel paths to each control unit. This is done by exploiting the in-band I/O instrumentation and metrics of the System z FICON® and zHPF protocols.

This channel subsystem enhancement is exclusive to IBM zEnterprise EC12 and is supported on all FICON channels when configured as CHPID type FC. This enhancement is transparent to operating systems.

z/OS support for the IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12)

z/OS V1.12 and later releases with PTFs, and z/OS V1.10 and z/OS V1.11 with the Lifecycle Extension for z/OS V1.10 (5656-A01) or the Lifecycle Extension for z/OS V1.11 (5657-A01) with PTFs, provide support for IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12). See the Software requirements section for information about minimum support levels. You can use current HOLDDATA and the SMP/E REPORT MISSINGFIX command to help you identify which PTFs are needed on current z/OS systems.

In addition, z/OS provides exploitation of many of the IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) features and functions, including Flash Express , hardware transactional memory, improved channel load balancing, a new I/O processing delay measurement, Coupling Facility write-around support, and 100-way symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) support in a single LPAR.

Flash Express exploitation is planned to be provided with z/OS V1.13 on December 14, 2012, with the z/OS V1R13 RSM Enablement Offering web deliverable. With this new function, z/OS is designed to help improve system availability and responsiveness by using Flash Express across transitional workload events such as market openings, and diagnostic data collection. z/OS is also designed to help improve processor performance by supporting middleware such as IMS™ , with its exploitation of pageable large (1 MB) pages. Exploitation is planned for:

z/OS V1.13 with PTFs and the z/OS V1R13 RSM Enablement Offering web deliverable, planned for availability in the first quarter of 2013, is designed to help improve processor performance by enabling middleware to use 2 GB pages. Exploitation is planned for the IBM 31-bit SDK for z/OS , Java technology Edition, V7.0.0 (5655-W43) and SDK7 IBM 64-bit SDK for z/OS , Java Technology Edition, V7.0.0 (5655-W44). For more information about Java , see Statement of general direction . Also, along with that support, z/OS will be designed to make the pageable link pack area (PLPA) and common page data sets optional, used only for quick and warm start IPLs.

z/OS V1.12 and later releases with a PTF, and z/OS V1.10 and z/OS V1.11 with the Lifecycle Extension for z/OS V1.10 (5656-A01) or the Lifecycle Extension for z/OS V1.11 (5657-A01) with a PTF, also provide support for FICON channel-to-channel adapter support for GRS Rings. You can migrate your existing ESCON® CTC links to FICON before installing an IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) to help simplify your migration.

z/OS V1.13 with PTFs also provides support for hardware transactional memory on IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12). Transactional memory provides atomic processing for multiple storage areas, which can reduce serialization overhead for exploiters. Java exploitation is planned with IBM 31-bit SDK for z/OS , Java technology Edition, V7.0.0 (5655-W43) and SDK7 IBM 64-bit SDK for z/OS , Java Technology Edition, V7.0.0 (5655-W44). For more information about Java , see Statement of general direction .

IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) servers incorporate improved channel load balancing algorithms, designed to provide more consistent I/O rates across the channel subsystem and help improve I/O response times, even when abnormal conditions occur. In support of this new function, z/OS V1.12 and V1.13 with a PTF also provide an updated health check based on an I/O rate-based metric, rather than on initial control unit command response time.

A new interrupt delay time measurement is available on IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) servers. With z/OS V1.12 or z/OS V1.13 and a PTF, planned for availability in the fourth quarter of 2012, RMF™ is designed to report on interrupt delay time to help you determine whether I/O processing delays are occurring. This new measurement is designed to measure the time between when primary status is presented to the channel subsystem and when the operating system clears the primary status to begin processing the interrupt. RMF is also designed to write this information to new fields in SMF type 74 subtype 1 and SMF 79 subtype 9 records.

IBM DB2 11 for z/OS (5615-DB2) running on z/OS V1.12 or z/OS V1.13 with the PTF for APAR OA37550 on IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) servers with CFLEVEL 18 is planned to exploit new z/OS function to allow batched updates to be written directly to disk without being cached in the Coupling Facility in a Parallel Sysplex® . This is designed to keep the data in the cache that is used by online transactions more current, which is expected to help improve performance during batch update periods. Also, this can help avoid application stalls that might sometimes occur during large concurrent batch updates. This function is also planned to be made available on IBM zEnterprise 196 (z196) servers with CFLEVEL 17 and an MCL.

z/OS V1.12 and z/OS V1.13 running on IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) servers support up to 100 processors configured in a single LPAR. z/OS supports combinations of general-purpose processors (CPs), zIIPs, and zAAPs.

z/OS V1.13 with a PTF adds XL C/C++ compiler support for new instructions and facilities available on IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) servers. New ARCH(10) and TUNE(10) compiler options can be used to optimize code that is intended to run on these servers.

Advances in cryptography available on IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) servers are planned to be available on September 19, 2012, with the Cryptographic Support for z/OS V1R12-V1R13 web deliverable, available at

http://www.ibm.com/systems/z/os/zos/downloads/

The new ICSF functions are intended to help banking and finance sector clients meet standards and provide better cryptographic security with:

Similarly, ICSF has enhancements designed to provide new functions for public sector clients, including industry-standard APIs for System z for better interoperability with other platforms to help improve application portability and simplify system setup:

Last, ICSF is designed to improve I/O performance for the public key data set (PKDS) and PKCS #11 token key data set (TKDS), and to provide a random number cache to help improve performance for applications that use random number generation functions. For more information about which features and functions are supported by different levels of ICSF, see the Software requirements section.

IBM continues to support running zAAP workloads on zIIP processors ("zAAP on zIIP"). IBM plans to provide a PTF for APAR OA38829 for z/OS V1.12 and z/OS V1.13 in September, 2012 to remove the restriction that prevents zAAP-eligible workloads from running on zIIP processors when a zAAP is installed on the server. This is intended only to help facilitate migration and testing of zAAP workloads on zIIP processors.

Access to a Parallel Sysplex environment

Parallel Sysplex is a synergy between hardware and software - a highly advanced technology for clustering designed to enable the aggregate capacity of multiple z/OS systems to be applied against common workloads. z/OS combined with IBM zEnterprise EC12, z196, z114, and z10 machines, Coupling Facilities, Server Time Protocol (STP), and coupling links (InfiniBand, ISC-3), allows you to harness the power of multiple systems as though they were a single logical computing system.

Coupling links provide a path to transmit/receive Coupling Facility (CF) data as well as Server Time Protocol (STP) timekeeping messages. The CF data may be exchanged between z/OS and the CF or between CFs.

InfiniBand coupling links are high-speed links, up to 6 GBps for 12x InfiniBand and up to 5 Gbps for 1x InfiniBand:

There are two types of Host Channel Adapters (HCAs) that can be used for IFB links: HCA2 and HCA3. Each supports 1x and 12x InfiniBand links.

HCA3-O SR fanout for 12x InfiniBand: 12x InfiniBand coupling links utilize the Host Channel Adapter 3 optical (HCA3-O) fanout. The HCA3-O fanout has two ports/links and is compatible with the HCA2-O fanout.

HCA3-O LR fanout for 1x InfiniBand: 1x InfiniBand coupling links utilize the Host Channel Adapter 3 optical long reach (HCA3-O LR) fanout. The HCA3-O LR fanout has four ports/links and is compatible with the HCA2-O LR fanout, which has two ports/links.

Two protocols - 12x IFB and 12x IFB3 - for the new generation of 12x InfiniBand coupling links: There are now two protocols supported by the HCA3-O for 12x IFB feature - 12x IFB and 12x IFB3.

The maximum number of all HCA2 and HCA3 fanout features is limited to 16 per system.

InterSystem Channel-3 (ISC-3) links support a link data rate of 2 Gbps. ISC-3 is supported at the same distance as 1x InfiniBand.

Internal coupling links (ICs) can also be used for internal communication between Coupling Facilities (CFs) defined in LPARs and z/OS images on the same server. ISC-3 links can not be ordered on an IBM zEnterprise EC12, but can be carried forward from a System z10 or z196.

Note: The InfiniBand link data rates do not represent the performance of the link. The actual performance is dependent upon many factors including latency through the adapters, cable lengths, and the type of workload. Systems Lab Services can assist your migration to PSIFB coupling links by providing services to assess the impact of the migration or to assist with the implementation of the migration.

STP - time synchronization for Parallel Sysplex

Server Time Protocol (STP) is designed to allow events occurring in different servers to be properly sequenced in time. STP is designed for servers that have been configured in a Parallel Sysplex or a basic sysplex (without a Coupling Facility), as well as servers that are not in a sysplex but need time synchronization.

STP is a server-wide facility that is implemented in the Licensed Internal Code (LIC), presenting a single view of time to Processor Resource/Systems Manager™ ( PR/SM™ ). STP uses a message-based protocol in which timekeeping information is passed over externally defined coupling links between servers.

The STP design introduced a concept called Coordinated Timing Network (CTN), a collection of servers and Coupling Facilities that are time-synchronized to a time value called Coordinated Server Time.

A CTN can be configured in two ways:

Parallel Sysplex enhancements

Reporting and monitoring improvements: The RMF Postprocessor Coupling Facility Activity and the Monitor III CFSYS report can be used to monitor resources associated with the Coupling Facility and CF links. They both have now been extended to indicate channel path details for each of the Coupling over InfiniBand (CIB) link types. This includes:

This information can help with monitoring and tuning of the Parallel Sysplex .

Refer to the Software requirements section.

Scalability improvements: As data sharing workloads continue to grow, the Parallel Sysplex infrastructure needs to anticipate the increased requirements for coupling resources. To do this, we have increased configuration limits to support larger data sharing environments.

Strengthened resiliency: IBM zEnterprise EC12 and CFCC Level 18 provide improved serviceability and protection of Coupling Facility structures with:

Performance enhancements: CFCC Level 18 delivers new function to help improve performance. This includes:

Refer to the Software requirements section.

NTP authentication: Security is enhanced when using the HMC as an NTP client to help ensure the time stamps are untampered. The HMC now adds Symmetric Key and Autokey authentication to help improve security when the HMC goes through the firewall to access time stamps from an NTP server.

IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension (zBX) Model 003

The IBM zEnterprise BladeCenter Extension (zBX) Model 003 continues to support workload optimization and integration for zEnterprise . As an optional feature attached to the zEC12 via a secure high-performance private network, the zBX can house the IBM WebSphere DataPower Integration Appliance XI50 for zEnterprise ( DataPower XI50z), and select IBM BladeCenter PS701 Express blades or the IBM BladeCenter HX5 (7873) blade for increased flexibility in "fit for purpose" application deployment. The zBX is tested and packaged together at the IBM manufacturing site and shipped as one unit, relieving you of complex configuration and setup requirements. With a focus on availability, the zBX has hardware redundancy built in at various levels: the power infrastructure, rack-mounted network switches, power and switch units in the BladeCenter chassis, and redundant cabling for support and data connections. Best of all, support for the zBX is with System z hardware maintenance services (24x7 with a System z Support Specialist Representative) and the System z maintenance strategy is extended to DataPower XI50z and any installed blades.

zBX model conversion: The zBX Model 003 may be attached only to IBM zEnterprise EC12. A zBX Model 002 attached to a z196 at the time of an upgrade to IBM zEnterprise EC12 is converted to a zBX Model 003 unless it is moved to another z196 or z114 prior to the upgrade. The model conversion during the upgrade to IBM zEnterprise EC12 is completed at no charge. You have the option to reduce, retain, or increase the entitlements which enable the IBM Blades and the DataPower XI50z, herein referred to as entitlements, on the CPC and their respective blades. The base BladeCenter infrastructure will remain the same when a Model 002 is converted to a Model 003 even if you choose to reduce the entitlements of the CPC. During a conversion if you decide to increase the number of entitlements, the base BladeCenter infrastructure may increase. No credit is issued for reductions during these movements and increases in entitlements may be purchased during this upgrade. The zBX Model 002 may only be converted to a zBX Model 003 during an upgrade to IBM zEnterprise EC12. The zBX Model 003 cannot be converted to a zBX Model 002.

zBX movements: As with the zBX Model 002, the zBX Model 003 movement from an IBM zEnterprise EC12 requires the purchase of new entitlements on the receiving IBM zEnterprise EC12. The IBM zEnterprise EC12 from which the zBX Model 003 is detached retains the Blade entitlements. No credit is issued for reductions during these movements and increases in entitlements may be purchased. The base BladeCenter infrastructure of a zBX will remain the same unless you order additional entitlements on the receiving IBM zEnterprise EC12. It may require additional BladeCenters to support the new entitlements. If a zBX is added to a CPC that has inherited entitlements, there will be a choice to reduce these inherited entitlements with no credit being issued, to match the zBX infrastructure or the attaching zBX may have additional zBX infrastructure added to support the entitlements. The zBX BladeCenter hardware must always support the entitlements on the CPC, unless there is no zBX attached. System z currently supports zBX Model 002 movement from and to a z196 or z114 within a customer site and plans to support similar movement of zBX Model 003 in first quarter 2013.

IBM WebSphere DataPower Integration Appliance XI50 for DataPower XI50z(s) can be removed from a zBX Model 002 and moved to another zBX Model 002 or zBX Model 003. Movements can only be between zBX Model 002s or upwards to a zBX Model 003, or between zBX Model 003s, but not downward from a zBX Model 003 to a zBX Model 002. You have the option to remove the DataPower XI50z(s) during a zBX movement and place it in the protective packaging provided by IBM . The support for the movement of DataPower XI50z(s) is planned to be available in first quarter 2013.

zBX Virtualization/Configuration data: Virtualization/Configuration data can only be saved (imported) from a z196 or IBM zEnterprise EC12 that has a Driver 12 Ensemble and can only be restored (exported) to an IBM zEnterprise EC12 with a Driver 12 Ensemble. This statement applies to a complete zBX or individual DataPower XI50z(s).

The innovative IBM zEnterprise Unified Resource Manager handles the job of managing system resources across the entire environment. It can help achieve throughput goals by providing hardware and platform management for the system as a whole. By presenting resources simply as a single virtualized heterogeneous system, the Unified Resource Manager provides "workload context" that can be used to identify and optimize the physical and virtual system resources that support an application. This allows the Unified Resource Manager to have workload awareness: the ability to inspect, report, and manage all connected resources (no matter which platform or operating environment) used in the service of the defined workload.

Unified Resource Manager dynamically adds virtual storage to configurations for the IBM BladeCenter HX5 (7873) blade in the zBX Model 003. Dynamic addition of virtual storage was previously available for IBM BladeCenter PS701 blades in the zBX.

Removal of support for connections to an STP Mixed CTN: The IBM zEnterprise EC12 will be the last high-end server to support connections to an STP Mixed CTN. This includes the Sysplex Timer (9037). After zEC12, servers that require time synchronization, such as to support a base or Parallel Sysplex , will require Server Time Protocol (STP), and all servers in that network must be configured in STP-only mode.

Removal of support for Ethernet half-duplex operation and 10 Mbps link data rate: The OSA-Express4S 1000BASE-T Ethernet feature is planned to be the last copper Ethernet feature to support half-duplex operation and a 10 Mbps link data rate. The IBM zEnterprise EC12 servers are planned to be the last IBM System z servers to support half-duplex operation and a 10 Mbps link data rate for copper Ethernet environments. Any future 1000BASE-T Ethernet feature will support full-duplex operation and auto-negotiation to 100 or 1000 Mbps exclusively.

Removal of ISC-3 support on System z : The IBM zEnterprise EC12 is planned to be the last high-end System z server to offer support of the InterSystem Channel-3 (ISC-3) for Parallel Sysplex environments at extended distances. ISC-3 will not be supported on future high-end System z servers as carry forward on an upgrade. Previously we announced that the IBM zEnterprise 196 (z196) and IBM zEnterprise 114 (z114) servers were the last to offer ordering of ISC-3. Enterprises should continue migrating from ISC-3 features (#0217, #0218, #0219) to 12x InfiniBand (#0171 - HCA3-O fanout) or 1x InfiniBand (#0170 - HCA3-O LR fanout) coupling links.

Removal of OSA-Express3 support on System z : The IBM zEnterprise EC12 is planned to be the last high-end System z server to offer support of the Open System Adapter-Express3 (OSA-Express3 #3362, #3363, #3367, #3370, #3371) family of features. OSA-Express3 will not be supported on future high-end System z servers as carry forward on an upgrade. Enterprises should continue migrating from the OSA-Express3 features to the OSA-Express4S features (#0404, #0405, #0406, #0407, #0408).

Removal of FICON Express4 support on System z : The IBM zEnterprise EC12 is planned to be the last high-end System z server to offer support of the FICON Express4 features (#3321, #3322). FICON Express4 will not be supported on future high-end System z servers as carry forward on an upgrade. Enterprises should continue migrating from the FICON Express4 features to the FICON Express8S features (#0409, #0410).

Removal of Crypto Express3 support on System z : The IBM zEnterprise EC12 is planned to be the last high-end System z server to offer support of the Crypto Express3 feature (#0864). Crypto Express3 will not be supported on future high-end System z servers as carry forward on an upgrade. Enterprises should begin migrating from the Crypto Express3 feature to the Crypto Express4S feature (#0865).

IBM Java exploitation of IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) functions: IBM plans for future maintenance roll-ups of IBM 31-bit and 64-bit SDK7 for z/OS Java Technology Edition, Version 7 (5655-W43 and 5655-W44) ( IBM SDK7 for z/OS Java ), to provide exploitation of new IBM zEnterprise EC12 features, including: Flash Express and pageable large pages, Transactional Execution Facility, Miscellaneous-Instruction-Extension Facility, and 2 GB pages. In addition, IBM SDK7 for z/OS Java is available for use by IBM middleware products running Java , such as IBM IMS 12 (5635-A03), IBM DB2 10 for z/OS (5605-DB2), and the Liberty profile of IBM WebSphere Application Server for z/OS v8.5 (5655-W65); and is planned for use by a future release of CICS® Transaction Server for z/OS .

IBM System z Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) and IBM System z Application Assist Processor (zAAP) simplification: IBM zEnterprise EC12 is planned to be the last high-end System z server to offer support for zAAP specialty engine processors. IBM intends to continue support for running zAAP workloads on zIIP processors ("zAAP on zIIP"). This is intended to help simplify capacity planning and performance management, while still supporting all the currently eligible workloads. In addition, IBM plans to provide a PTF for APAR OA38829 on z/OS V1.12 and V1.13 in September 2012 to remove the restriction that prevents zAAP-eligible workloads from running on zIIP processors when a zAAP is installed on the server. This is intended only to help facilitate migration and testing of zAAP workloads on zIIP processors.

IBM plans to provide new capability within the Tivoli Integrated Service Management family of products designed to leverage analytics information from IBM zAware, and to provide alert and event notification.

CPU management for System x blades: IBM intends to deliver workload-aware optimization for IBM System x Blades in the zBX. This allows virtual CPU capacity to be adjusted automatically across virtual servers within a hypervisor, helping to insure that System x resources in the zBX are executing to the defined SLAs.

Automated multi-site recovery: IBM intends to deliver automated multi-site recovery for zBX hardware components based upon GDPS® technologies. These capabilities will help facilitate the management of planned and unplanned outages across IBM zEnterprise EC12.

IBM Systems Director offerings: IBM intends to deliver new functionality with IBM Systems Director offerings to support IBM's zBX. Such planned new capabilities will be designed to provide virtual image management and enhanced energy management functions for the Power Systems™ and System x blades.

DB2 continues to deliver extremely high availability, security, and resiliency with its deep integration with z/OS on System z servers. Beyond the existing DB2 support for zEC12, DB2 plans further enhancements designed to improve performance in two ways: 1) using pageable large (1 MB) pages and Flash Express and 2) enabling support of 2 GB pages.

IBM intends to update CICS Transaction Server for z/OS , providing new application, platform, and policy capabilities that can help clients build private clouds from new and existing CICS applications. This capability is intended to assist CICS clients to deploy new and updated CICS applications faster, more easily, and with greater levels of confidence.
