  • Upgradability to IBM z14 from IBM z13™ and IBM zEnterprise® EC12 and upgradability within the IBM z14 family.

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 z14, 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 V2.2, the LSPR also contains performance relationships for z/VM, KVM, and Linux operating environments.

The capacity per processor engine of an IBM z14 (3906) processor is expected to provide approximately a 10% increase over that of a z13 (2964), with some variation, based on workload and configuration. The largest IBM z14 (3906-7H0) is expected to provide up to 35% more capacity than the largest z13 (2964-7E1). The IFL and zIIP processors on the IBM z14 also provide an optional IBM z14 multithreading technology capability; with the multithreading function enabled, the performance capacity of an IFL or zIIP is expected to typically be up to 25% higher than without the multithreading function enabled.

The LSPR contains the Internal Throughput Rate Ratios (ITRRs) for IBM z14 and the previous-generation IBM 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 level of multiprogramming in the user's job stream, the I/O configuration, the workload processed, and the LPAR configuration. Therefore, no assurance can be given that an individual user will achieve throughput improvements equivalent to the performance estimates stated.

For more detailed performance information, consult the Large Systems Performance Reference (LSPR) available at the Resource Link® website.

Next-generation availability

The IBM z14 processor builds upon the Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS) of the z13 family, with the following RAS improvements:

  • IBM z14 Level 3 cache enhancements using powerful symbol ECC that now spreads cache data over multiple physical cache arrays. This enables the detection and correction of multibit errors, making the Level 3 cache more resilient and fault tolerant.
  • Preemptive DRAM marking added to main memory to isolate and recover failures more quickly.
  • Improved small array error handling in the processor cores.
  • Additional error thresholding to the processor core to isolate "sick but not dead" failure scenarios.
  • An increase in the number of "Resource Groups" (from 2 to 4) to reduce the impact of firmware updates and failures.

Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 5+ (EAL 5+) certification

The IBM z14 is designed for Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 5+ (EAL5+) certification for security of logical partitions. This means that the IBM z14 is designed to prevent an application running on one operating system image on one LPAR from accessing application data running on a different operating system image on another LPAR on the server.

Common Cryptographic Architecture (CCA) enhancements

PCI PTS HSM compliance

The Crypto Express6S coprocessor with CCA 6.0 is designed to comply with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Pin Transaction Security (PTS) Hardware Security Module (HSM) Standard. PCI security standards are developed by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council to help ensure security in the payment card industry with guidance and direction to HSM vendors to help meet the security needs of the financial payments industry.

The requirements in PCI PTS HSM standards are intended to enhance security for operations that process sensitive data with requirements in key management, HSM API functions, device physical security, controls during manufacturing and delivery, device administration, and a number of other areas.

The Crypto Express6S manufacturing and delivery processes are enhanced with IBM z14 to comply with PCI PTS HSM and with CCA 6.0 introduces several new capabilities both for PCI PTS HSM compliance mode and for general use:

  1. A new derived key hierarchy so that PCI PTS HSM compliance-tagged key tokens may be used alongside existing keys and services in a nondisruptive fashion -- with existing master keys.
  2. Nondisruptive transition to PCI PTS HSM mode: Using TKE 9.0, a domain of the Crypto Express6S coprocessor with CCA 6.0 may be placed in PCI PTS HSM compliant mode with no disruption to other domains or to normal/legacy services using the domain that is moved to PCI PTS HSM compliant mode.
  3. Secure Audit Log hosted from the Crypto Express6S coprocessor with CCA 6.0. Required by the PCI PTS HSM standard, this audit log covers all administrative actions and is managed by TKE 9.0. The new audit log is nondisruptive to normal application processing for domains where it is active.
  4. Secure public key infrastructure: The Crypto Express6S coprocessor with CCA 6.0 adds native X.509 certificate support including PKCS #10 certificate request generation through a new PKI hosted from the coprocessor. Trust chain certificates are managed via TKE 9.0.
  5. Migration planning assistance through active application reporting. The Crypto Express6S coprocessor with CCA 6.0 can report in real time what operations and keys will need attention if they are planned for use with PCI PTS HSM compliant-tagged keys. Report details and activity depend on host access library/operating system configuration.
  6. CPACF exportable AES cipher key support added for AES cipher keys created using new options in CCA 6.0.

Trusted Key Entry (TKE) 9.0 Licensed Internal Code (LIC)

The following functions are planned to be supported in the TKE 9.0 level of LIC:

  • Crypto Express6S Coprocessor support: TKE 9.0 is required for managing Crypto Express6S cryptographic coprocessors and manages them through the same Crypto Module notebook functions as previous generations of Cryptographic modules.
  • Key material copy to alternate zone: TKE 9.0 allows you to copy key material from smart cards in one TKE zone to smart cards in another zone. You might have old 1024 bit strength TKE zones, and may wish to move/copy the key material in those zones into a new, stronger TKE zone. To use this new feature you create new TKE and/or EP11 smart cards on your TKE 9.0 system. You enroll the new TKE and/or EP11 smart cards in an alternate zone. This allows you to copy smart card content from a smart card enrolled in the alternate zone.
  • Save TKE data directory structure with files to USB: TKE data can be saved to, or restored from, removable media in the same directory structure they were found on the TKE.
  • Create key parts without opening a host: The TKE application now has the ability for administrators to create key parts without opening a host. This allows the key administrator to create key parts while being offline or before any hosts are defined. This feature can be found in the TKE application under the Utilities > Create CCA key parts pull down menu.
  • New TKE Audit Log application: There is a new TKE Audit Log application available for the Privileged Mode Access ID of AUDITOR. This application provides a new, easy-to-use interface to view the TKE workstation security audit records from the TKE workstation.
  • Heartbeat audit record: TKE workstations cut an audit record when the TKE boots or when no audit events have occurred during a client-configured duration of time. The record shows the serial number of the TKE local crypto adapter and indicates if the local crypto adapter has been changed since the last check.
  • Performance improvements for domain groups: With CCA 5.3 and later firmware levels, and TKE 9.0, performance may be improved for operations performed with large domain groups. For example, consider a domain group of 85 domains and a Clear New Master Key Register operation is performed from the TKE. The number of TKE commands issued to the Crypto Express coprocessor from the TKE will be reduced from 85 to 1, thereby reducing the time to complete the operation.
  • Master key part entry on EP11: Known master key parts can now be entered and saved on smart cards for coprocessors configured in EP11 mode using TKE 9.0. This enables key custodians to manage EP11 master key parts in a fashion that is consistent with coprocessors configured in CCA mode.
  • Smart card readers: With TKE 9.0, if you have HID/OMNIKEY smart card readers you may continue to use them. See the TKE User's Guide for more detailed smart card reader information.
  • New certificate manager for domains: Every domain will now have the ability to manage a set of parent X.509 certificates for validating operating X.509 certificates used by applications running in the domain. The Crypto Express6S with CCA 6.0 is designed to meet the PCI-HSM PIN Transaction Security v3.0, 2016 standard.

    The following features are related to support for the Crypto Express6S with CCA 6.0.

  • Domain mode management: With CCA 6.0, individual domains are in one of the following modes:
    • Normal mode
    • Imprint mode
    • Compliant mode

    Imprint and compliant modes were added to help customers migrate to a PCI-HSM compliant mode and meet PCI-HSM PIN Transaction Security v3.0, 2016 requirements. TKE is required to manage Host Crypto Module domains in imprint and compliant mode.

  • Set clock: With TKE 9.0, you now have the ability to set the host crypto module's clock. The clock must be set before a domain can be placed in imprint mode.
  • Domain-specific Host Crypto Module Audit Log management: Domains in imprint mode or compliant mode on a Crypto Express6S maintain a domain-specific module audit log. The TKE provides a feature for downloading the audit records so they can be viewed.
  • Domain-specific roles and authorities: Domains in imprint mode or compliant mode on a Crypto Express6S must be managed using domain-specific roles and authorities. The TKE provides new management features for the domain-specific roles and authorities. The roles are subject to forced dual control policies which prevent roles from being able to both issue and cosign a command. See the TKE User's Guide for detailed information on how to manage imprint and compliant mode domains.
  • Setup PCI Environment Wizard: To help simplify the management of a PCI compliant domain, the TKE now provides a setup wizard that will create a minimum set of required dual control roles and authorities needed to manage a PCI compliant domain. See the TKE User's Guide for detailed information on how to manage imprint and compliant mode domains.
FICON Express16S+

With the introduction of FICON Express16S+ on the IBM z14, you now have additional growth opportunities for your storage area network (SAN).

FICON Express16S+ supports a link data rate of 16 gigabits per second (Gbps) and autonegotiation to 4 or 8 Gbps for synergy with existing switches, directors, and storage devices. With support for native FICON, High Performance FICON for z Systems (zHPF), and Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP), the IBM z14 server enables you to position your SAN for even higher performance -- helping you to prepare for an end-to-end 16 Gbps infrastructure to meet the lower latency and increased bandwidth demands of your applications.

The new FICON Express16S+ adapter will work with your existing fiber optic cabling environment, both single mode and multimode optical cables. The FICON Express16S+ feature running at end-to-end 16 Gbps link speeds will provide reduced latency for large read/write operations and increased bandwidth compared to the FICON Express8S feature.

Increased throughput for the zHPF protocol: In laboratory measurements using FICON Express16S+ in a z14 with the zHPF protocol and small data transfer I/O operations, FICON Express16S+ operating at 16 Gbps achieved a maximum of 300,000 IOs/sec. In laboratory measurements, using FICON Express16S+ in a z14 with the zHPF protocol and a mix of large sequential read and write data transfer I/O operations, FICON Express16S+ operating at 16 Gbps achieved a maximum throughput of 3200 MB/sec (reads + writes) compared to a maximum of 2560 MB/sec (reads + writes) achieved with FICON Express16S operating at 16 Gbps. This performance data was measured in a controlled environment running an I/O driver program under z/OS. The actual throughput or performance that any user will experience will vary depending upon considerations such as the amount of multiprogramming in the user's job stream, the I/O configuration, the storage configuration, and the workload processed.

Increased throughput for the FCP protocol: A FICON Express16S+ feature, when defined as CHPID type FCP, conforms to the Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) standard to support attachment of SCSI devices, to complement the classical storage attachment supported by FICON and zHPF channels. In laboratory measurements, using FICON Express16S+ in an IBM z14 with the FCP protocol for small data transfer I/O operations, FICON Express16S+ operating at 16 Gbps achieved a maximum of 380,000 IOs/sec, compared to the maximum of 110,000 IOs/sec achieved with FICON Express16S operating at 16 Gbps. In laboratory measurements, using FICON Express16S+ in an IBM z14 with the FCP protocol and FICON Express16S+ operating at 16 Gbps, FICON Express16S+ achieved a maximum throughput of 3200 MB/sec (reads + writes). This represents approximately a 25% increase in throughput. The actual throughput or performance that any user will experience will vary depending upon considerations such as the amount of multiprogramming in the user's job stream, the I/O configuration, the storage configuration, and the workload processed.

The FCP protocol is supported by z/VM, z/VSE®, KVM, and Linux on IBM z Systems™. See the Software requirements section.

Cleaning discipline for FICON Express16S fiber optic cabling: With the introduction of 16 Gbps link data rates, it is even more critical to ensure your fiber optic cabling infrastructure performs as expected. Proper fiber optic cleaning and maintenance is required to help ensure that the "data gets through." With 16 Gbps link data rates over multimode fiber optic cabling, link loss budgets and distances are reduced. Single-mode fiber optic cabling is more "reflection sensitive." With high link data rates and single-mode fiber optic cabling there is also less margin for error. The cabling is no longer scratch-tolerant and contaminants such as dust and oil can present a problem. To keep the data flowing, proper handling of fiber trunks and jumper cables is critical as well as thorough cleaning of fiber optic connectors. Work with your data center personnel or IBM personnel to ensure you have fiber optic cleaning procedures in place.

Channel subsystem (CSS) scalability: The IBM z14 server, like the IBM z13 server, has support for six logical channel subsystems (LCSSs) which are required to support the 85 LPARs for IBM z14, and four subchannel sets.

OSA-Express6S - an Ethernet technology refresh

A new generation of Ethernet features is being introduced for use in the PCIe I/O drawer and continues to be supported by the 16 GBps PCIe Gen3 host bus. This is an introduction of the full family of features -- 1000BASE-T Ethernet for copper environments, in addition to 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) for single-mode and multimode fiber optic environments. The performance characteristics are comparable to the OSA-Express5S features. They also retain the same form factor and port granularity -- two ports per feature for the 1000BASE-T Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet features, and one port per feature for the 10 Gigabit Ethernet features.

The OSA-Express6S family of features (#0422, #0423, #0424, #0425, #0426) is exclusive to the z14. They are supported by z/OS, z/VM, z/VSE, z/TPF, Linux on z Systems, and KVM hypervisor. See the Software requirements section.

IBM Virtual Flash Memory

IBM Virtual Flash Memory (VFM) is the replacement for the Flash Express features (#0402, #0403) which were available on the IBM zEC12 and IBM z13. No application changes are required to change from IBM Flash Express to VFM.

IBM Virtual Flash Memory is designed to help improve availability and handling of paging workload spikes when running z/OS V2.3, V2.2, or V2.1, or on z/OS V1.13*. With this support, z/OS is designed to help improve system availability and responsiveness by using VFM across transitional workload events such as market openings, and diagnostic data collection. z/OS is designed to help improve processor performance by supporting middleware exploitation of pageable large (1 MB) pages.

Using VFM 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. VFM can also be used in Coupling Facility images to provide extended capacity and availability for workloads making use of WebSphere® MQ Shared Queues structures.

VFM can therefore help organizations meet their most demanding service level agreements and compete more effectively. VFM is designed to be easy to configure, and to provide rapid time to value.

* z/OS V1.13 has additional requirements. See the Software requirements section.

IBM zHyperLink Express

IBM zHyperLink Express is a direct connect short distance, IBM Z I/O adapter offering extremely low latency connectivity to FICON storage systems. Working in conjunction with your existing FICON SAN infrastructure, zHyperLink fosters a new I/O paradigm for IBM mainframes. zHyperLink improves application response time, cutting I/O sensitive workload response time by up to 50% without requiring application changes. zHyperLink Express is a 2 port adapter which resides in the PCIe I/O drawer and supports direct connectivity to FICON storage systems at distances up to 150 m.

Note: This response time estimate is based on IBM internal measurements and projections that assume 75% or more of the workload response time is associated with read DASD I/O and the storage system random read cache hit ratio is above 80%. The actual performance that any user will experience may vary.

Dynamic Partition Manager (DPM)

Dynamic Partition Manager (DPM) provides simplified hardware and virtual infrastructure management, including partition lifecycle and integrated dynamic I/O management for Linux running in an LPAR, under KVM on z, and under z/VM 6.4. Using DPM, an environment can be created, provisioned, and modified without disrupting running workloads, and monitored for troubleshooting. Currently, DPM supports FCP storage. Enhancements to DPM simplify the installation of the Linux operating system, and support additional hardware adapters. These enhancements include:

  • Support for autoconfiguration of devices to simplify Linux operating system installation, where Linux distribution installers exploit function
  • Secure FTP through HMC for booting and installing an operating system via FTP
  • Support for OSA-Express 6S, FICON Express 16S+, Crypto Express6S, and RoCE Express2 adapters

A CPC can be configured in either the Dynamic Partition Manager mode or PR/SM™ mode. The mode is enabled prior to the CPC power-on reset (POR).

Dynamic Partition Manager mode requires two OSA-Express 1000BASE-T Ethernet features for primary and backup connectivity (OSA-Express6S 1000BASE-T Ethernet, #0426 or OSA-Express5S 1000BASE-T Ethernet, #0417), along with associated cabling (HW for DPM, #0016).

The IBM Secure Service Container

The IBM Secure Service Container is a framework for securely deploying software appliances on IBM Z and LinuxONE. Currently, there are three offerings that exploit the Secure Service Container:

  • IBM Blockchain High Security Business Network
  • IBM Operations Analytics for z Systems - zAware
  • IBM z/VSE Network Appliance

The Secure Service Container consists of both a firmware framework and a software framework.

The following is an enhancement to the z14 IBM Secure Service Container firmware framework:

  • Simplification - Dynamic Partition Manager support for dynamic resource management and creation of Secure Service Container LPARs without needing to re-IML.

The following are enhancements that have recently been made to the IBM Secure Service Container software framework:

  • Security
    • Enable secure boot of appliance via system unique key smart card access such that the Secure Service Container or system administrator cannot utilize privileged credentials to see or access the key.
    • Runtime and tamper protection via BTRFS Filesystems for root and data volumes.
  • Appliance management
    • Support the addition of FCP (and ECKD™) storage to different disk pools via the appliance UI.
    • Support network configurations managed by IPv4, IPv6, and VLAN configurations from the appliance UI.
    • Enable appliance updates including import from a prior, saved and exported configuration -- avoid losing configuration data (going back to a "Factory Install"-like state); particularly useful for Blockchain, which typically utilizes many concurrently running instances.
    • Support different users and groups via Local LDAP server and UI management.
    • Support starting appliance installer from a running appliance without having to interface with the HMC.
  • Usability
    • Avoid appliance spoofs by ensuring that a trusted and uniquely signed instance of an appliance is booted only in one LPAR, not multiple LPARs.

z/Architecture mode

As announced on January 14, 2015 with Hardware Announcement 115-001, dated January 14, 2015, beginning with IBM z14, all IBM Z systems will only support operating systems running in z/Architecture mode. This applies to operating systems running native on PR/SM as well as operating systems running as second-level guests. IBM operating systems that run in ESA/390 mode are either no longer in service or only currently available with extended service contracts, and they are not usable on systems beginning with IBM z14. However, IBM z14 does provide ESA/390-compatibility mode, an environment supporting a subset of DAT-off ESA/390 applications in a hybrid architectural mode.

All 24-bit and 31-bit problem state application programs originally written to run on the ESA/390 architecture will be unaffected by this change.

z/OS support for the IBM z14

New functions in z/OS continue to enhance the role of IBM Z, with support for the IBM z14 and its role in helping you provide solutions for a trusted digital economy. Capabilities designed to optimize high availability, performance, security, and operational flexibility can help organizations grow and secure their most critical transaction environments.

In addition to base processor support, z/OS provides the support for these IBM z™ 14 functions and features as described in IBM Sofware Announcement 217-246, dated July 17, 2017, IBM z/OS Version 2 Release 3 -- Engine for digital transformation, dated July 17, 2017:

  • Improved cryptographic capabilities that can be leveraged to begin implementation of IBM's pervasive data encryption strategy.
  • The IBM zHyperLink Express feature (also, see the IBM zHyperLink Express section of this announcement).

Container Pricing for IBM Z

IBM is introducing Container Pricing for IBM Z for qualified solutions running on IBM z13 and z14 servers. Container Pricing will provide simplified software pricing for qualified solutions, combining flexible deployment options with competitive economics that are directly relevant to those solutions.

Container Pricing can scale from collocated solutions within existing LPARs, through to separate LPARs, up to multiple-LPAR solutions, without directly impacting the cost of unrelated workloads.

Additionally, Container Pricing will simplify pricing and billing on the IBM Z platform, by superseding a number of existing price offerings and by fully automating the billing process.

IBM initially announces three solutions that will be enabled with Container Pricing:

  • The New Application Solution will provide a highly competitive stand-alone priced offering for new z/OS applications, such as CICS® TS or WebSphere applications. The New Application Solution is the strategic replacement for the current zCAP and IWP priced offerings.
  • The Application Development and Test Solution will provide highly competitive stand-alone pricing for z/OS based development and test workloads. Modern DevOps tooling can be optionally added at uniquely discounted prices.
  • The Payments Solution will provide a "per payment" pricing option for IBM Financial Transaction Manager for z/OS deployments. This new offering directly ties operational cost to business value by basing the price on the number of payments processed, rather than capacity used to process them.

Container Pricing for IBM Z is planned to be available by year end 2017 and enabled in z/OS V2.2 and z/OS V2.3 with the PTFs for APARs associated with fix category IBM.Function.PricingInfrastructure. z/OS will enhance both the Workload Manager capability of z/OS (z/OS WLM) and the Sub-Capacity Reporting Tool (SCRT) to support Container Pricing. This includes:

  • The introduction of a new Tenant Resource Group capability within z/OS WLM to allow the metering and optional capping of workloads, along with the ability to map those workloads directly to Container Pricing.
  • Enhancements to SCRT to capture eligible Container Pricing workloads, allowing for the billing of those solutions independently of traditional Sub-Capacity pricing.

z/VM support for the IBM z14

With the PTF for APAR VM65942, planned to be available August 25, 2017, z/VM V6.3 and V6.4 provide support that will enable guests to exploit function supported by z/VM on IBM z14, which includes:

  • z/Architecture support: The z/VM Stand-Alone Program Loader (SAPL) utility, DASD Dump Restore (DDR), and the Stand-Alone Dump utility have been enhanced to run entirely in z/Architecture mode. z/Architecture support for these utilities is in the base of z/VM V6.4 and provided for z/VM V6.3 with the available PTF for APAR VM65856. z/Architecture support for the Stand-Alone Dump utility is in the base of z/VM V6.4 and provided for z/VM V6.3 with the available PTFs for APARs VM65921 and VM65922.
  • New hardware facilities: z/VM will enable guest use of new instructions and capabilities available on IBM z14.

  • ESA/390-compatibility mode for guests: IBM z14 does not support the full ESA/390 architectural mode. However, IBM z14 does provide ESA/390-compatibility mode, an environment supporting a subset of DAT-off ESA/390 applications in a hybrid architectural mode. z/VM will provide the support necessary for DAT-off guests to run in this new compatibility mode, which allows guests such as CMS, GCS, and those that start in ESA/390 mode briefly before switching to z/Architecture mode to continue to run on IBM z14.

    The available PTF for APAR VM65976 provides infrastructure support for ESA/390 compatibility mode within z/VM V6.2, V6.3, and V6.4, and must be installed on all members of an SSI cluster before any z/VM V6.3 or V6.4 member of the cluster is run on an IBM z14 server.

  • Support for Crypto Express6S: z/VM support for the new Crypto Express6S (CEX6S) adapter is included for both shared and dedicated guest use. As with the prior crypto adapter support, the CEX6S adapter can be configured as an accelerator or as an IBM Common Cryptographic Architecture (CCA) coprocessor for shared or dedicated use by z/Architecture guests. When the CEX6S adapter is configured as an IBM Enterprise Public-Key Cryptography Standards (PKCS) #11 (EP11) coprocessor, the domains on the adapter can be dedicated to z/Architecture guests, but not shared. With Crypto Express6S support and support for the new and enhanced CPACF functions, z/VM V6.3 and V6.4 provide the prerequisite IBM z14 encryption support to enable exploitation by guests in support of pervasive encryption of data in flight and at rest.
  • Dynamic I/O support: Dynamic I/O support is provided for managing the configuration of OSA-Express 6S OSD CHPIDs, FICON Express 16S+ FC and FCP CHPIDs, Regional Crypto Enablement (RCE), zHyperLink Express, and RoCE Express 2 functions. The available PTF for APAR VM65865 provides dynamic I/O support for the Coupling Express LR adapter in z/VM V6.3 and z/VM V6.4, and is applicable to z13, z13s, and z14.
  • RoCE Express2 support: Guest exploitation support for RoCE Express2 allows the adapters to be brought online and attached to supporting guests for exploitation.
  • Improved memory management support: The IBM z14 processor design allows greater concurrency in address translation. This improvement may increase z/VM workloads' performance compared to z13, particularly when z/VM is configured to exploit multithreading.

Installing z/VM on the IBM z14

z/VM V6.3 cannot be installed directly on an IBM z14 server. Instead, z/VM V6.3 must be installed on a prior IBM Z server and the PTFs for APARs VM65942, VM65921, and VM65922 must be applied prior to moving the image to z14. After applying all required service and before IPLing z/VM V6.3 on an IBM z14 server, an updated SAPL must be installed by using the updated SALIPL MODULE provided by the PTF for APAR VM65856. Otherwise, z/VM V6.3 will not successfully IPL on a z14 server. In addition, after applying the PTFs for APARs VM65921 and VM65922, the stand-alone dump program must be re-installed using the updated SDINST utility.

z/VM V6.4 can be installed directly on a z14 server with an image obtained from IBM after August 25, 2017. The PTF for APAR VM65942 must be applied immediately after installing z/VM V6.4.

Guest exploitation support for the Instruction Execution Protection Facility

With the PTF for APAR VM65986, planned to be available December 15, 2017, z/VM V6.4 will provide support for guest exploitation of the IBM z14 Instruction Execution Protection Facility. This facility provides functionality to help improve the security of programs running on IBM Z by allowing virtual memory elements to be identified as containing only data. If an attempt is made to fetch an instruction from an address in such an element or if an address in such an element is the target of an execute-type instruction, a Protection Exception will occur.

Guest exploitation support for pause-less garbage collection

With the PTF for APAR VM65987, planned to be available December 15, 2017, z/VM V6.4 will provide support for guest exploitation of the z14 Guarded Storage Facility. This facility is designed to improve the performance of garbage-collection processing by various languages, in particular Java.

Encrypted paging support

With the PTF for APAR VM65993, planned to be available December 15, 2017, z/VM V6.4 will provide support for encrypted paging, in support of the z14 pervasive encryption philosophy of encrypting data in flight and at rest. Ciphering will occur as data moves between active memory and a paging volume owned by z/VM. Included in the support is the ability to dynamically control whether a running z/VM system is encrypting this data.

Sub-capacity pricing terms for z/VM and select z/VM-based programs

Sub-capacity pricing for the z/VM V6 operating environment is available to clients running z/VM Version 6 Release 3 or higher. Software pricing at less than full machine capacity can provide more flexibility and improved cost of computing as a client manages the volatility and growth of new workloads. For more information about Sub-capacity pricing terms for z/VM and z/VM-based programs, see Software Announcement 217-267, dated July 17, 2017.

z/VM continuous delivery philosophy

IBM has adopted a new practice for z/VM, known as the continuous delivery (CD) support model, for delivering new function via PTFs to assist enterprises in receiving function more quickly. IBM will deliver new function via PTFs, while continuing to recognize that base stability is a critical component. Clients will continue to receive the same world-class support and assistance from IBM to which they are accustomed as part of the standard Software Subscription and Support (S&S) offering. The z/VM service page provides details on new z/VM functions that have been or will be provided using this continuous delivery model and allows for subscribing to be alerted when new functions have been made available.

Additional z/VM V6.4 enhancements during 2017

The following enhancements for z/VM V6.4 are planned during 2017:

  • Concurrent I/O support for the IBM XIV® Storage System: With the available PTF for APAR VM65929, the z/VM SCSI container enables multiple I/O requests to be issued concurrently to EDEVICEs backed by IBM XIV Storage System hardware, which may improve performance. This support particularly benefits EDEVICE paging I/O or volumes containing multiple minidisks.
  • Distributed IUCV enhancements: With the available PTF for APAR VM65872, the rules for Distributed IUCV CONNECT in a single system image (SSI) environment are revised. This support allows IUCV CONNECT to work in cases that were originally restricted, primarily because they involved a Multiconfiguration Virtual Machine (IDENTITY) user.

    This support also makes it easier for an administrator to change the Distributed IUCV policy for an SSI cluster. Previously, the Distributed IUCV policy within an active SSI cluster could be changed only by shutting down all members at the same time. As this new support is applied to each system, it will be possible for that member to join the cluster regardless of its Distributed IUCV configuration.

  • NICDEF security control enhancements: With the PTFs for APARs VM65925, VM65926, and VM65931, planned to be available August 4, 2017, the NICDEF directory statement is enhanced to provide a set of new operands referred to as Directory Network Authorization (DNA). With DNA, a system administrator can configure and consolidate a virtual NIC device and its network properties in a centralized location -- z/VM's User Directory. Operational differences between PORTBASED and USERBASED VSwitches have been eliminated with this support. A system administrator has the option to manage a VSwitch by user, by port number, or using a combination of the two methods. While the management of USERBASED and PORTBASED VSwitches is simplified, Live Guest Relocation of a guest connected to a VSwitch still requires the destination system to have a VSwitch with a PORTBASED or USERBASED designation matching that of the source system.
  • RACF® security policy enhancements: With the available PTFs for APARs VM65930 and VM65982, the z/VM RACF Security Server feature supports the following security policy enhancements:
    • Read-Only Auditor (ROAUDIT): This new user role allows many of the common auditing tasks to be performed without the ability to modify settings or manipulate audit logs.
    • XAUTOLOG..ON control: This enhancement introduces new security policy requirements for the ON operand of the CP XAUTOLOG command. This changes default behavior of this operand when an ESM is installed on your system.
    • List the current VMXEVENT profile: This enhancement updates the SETEVENT LIST command to provide an authorized user with the names of the VMXEVENT profiles activated and in use by RACF.

      Note: The PTF for APAR VM65923 provides infrastructure support in z/VM V6.2, V6.3, and V6.4 and must be installed on all the members of an SSI cluster before any V6.4 member is running with the PTF for APAR VM65930.

  • Crypto Express APVIRT support for the z/VM TLS/SSL server and LDAP/VM: With the available PTF for APAR PI72106, the z/VM System SSL cryptographic library is updated to offload cryptographic operations to Crypto Express hardware associated with your IBM Z or LinuxONE hardware, which may improve performance. This support is intended for clear-key RSA operations. To enable this support, add the CRYPTO APVIRTUAL statement to the pertinent service virtual machine entries in the z/VM User Directory.
  • EAV minidisk support: With the PTFs for APARs VM65943 and VM65945, planned to be available August 25, 2017, enhanced EAV support for 3390-A DASD devices supporting 28-bit cylinder addresses is provided. This support will allow non-fullpack minidisks to reside anywhere on the volume, including beyond the current restriction of the 64K cylinder boundary (0-65519), and up to the one terabyte limit currently supported.
  • Dump processing enhancements: With the available PTF for APAR VM65989, the amount of time it takes for z/VM to write a hard abend or snap dump to 3390 DASD may be reduced. The improvements were achieved via changes to the I/O channel program used to write central memory to z/VM spool space located on 3390 DASD. This APAR also provides support for reducing dump size by excluding PGMBKs from snap dumps.
  • Alternate subchannel set dynamic I/O support: With the PTF for APAR VM65942, planned to be available August 25, 2017, z/VM V6.4 provides dynamic I/O commands within the z/VM hypervisor for supporting define, modify, and delete of a device within either the default or alternate subchannel sets. HCD support is currently not available.
z/VSE support for the IBM z14

z/Architecture support: Starting with z/VSE V5.2, z/VSE and its stand-alone utilities run entirely in z/Architecture mode.

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 z14, z13, z13s, zEC12, and zBC12 servers, Coupling Facilities, Server Time Protocol (STP), Parallel Sysplex InfiniBand (PSIFB) 1x and 12x coupling links, and ICA SR and CE LR coupling links, depending on processor type, 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 and 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.

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.

STP enhancements

IBM z14 will introduce an additional stratum level 4 for Server Time Protocol (STP) synchronization. With the additional stratum level, STP can synchronize systems up to 3 steps away from the Current Time Server (CTS). Prior systems allowed synchronization only up to level 3, or up to 2 steps from the CTS. This additional stratum level is not intended for long-term use; rather, it is specifically intended for short-term use during configuration changes for large timing networks, to avoid some of the cost and complexity caused by being constrained to a 3-stratum timing configuration.

IBM z14 will also introduce a new Graphical User Display for the STP network and configuration. The new user interface has been revamped for a quick, intuitive view of the various pieces of the STP relationship network map, including the status of the components of the timing network. The new z14 support allows the new level of HMC to manage older systems using the same new interface.

Parallel Sysplex enhancements

A number of exciting new enhancements are available for IBM z14 for use within Parallel Sysplex environments.

For long range coupling connectivity, the new Coupling Express Long Reach (CE LR) link (FC #0433) is available with z14. This CE LR link is concurrently being made available on, and is compatible with z13 and z13s systems, which allows for sysplex connectivity back to these systems. Unlike the 1x IFB InfiniBand coupling links, which were plugged into the processor drawer, the CE LR link is plugged within a PCIe I/O drawer slot, taking advantage of more industry-standard I/O technology, such as converged Ethernet. The location inside the PCIe I/O drawer allows users to fan links out across multiple 2-port CE LR cards, up to a maximum of 32 features (64 links maximum) for z14 and z13 servers, and up to a maximum of 16 features (32 links maximum) for z13s servers, in 2 link increments. Compared to the HCAO-3 IFB InfiniBand LR with 4-port and 4-link increments, the CE LR link allows for more granularity when scaling up or completing maintenance. Link performance is similar to the InfiniBand 1x coupling link and uses identical single-mode fiber. The CE LR link provides point-to-point coupling connectivity at distances of 10 km unrepeated and 100 km with a qualified dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) device.

Per prior Statements of Direction, IBM will remove support for both the HCA3-O LR fanout for 1x IFB InfiniBand coupling links and the HCA3-O fanout for the 12x IFB InfiniBand coupling links for future high-end and midrange IBM Z systems. The z14 server will be the last high-end IBM Z server to support HCA3-O LR 1x IFB InfiniBand coupling links or HCA3-O 12x IFB InfiniBand coupling links, while z13s is the last midrange IBM Z server to support the HCA3-O LR 1x IFB InfiniBand coupling links or HCA3-O 12x IFB InfiniBand coupling links.

IBM Z enterprises should plan to migrate off of InfiniBand coupling links.

  • For high-speed short-range coupling connectivity, enterprises should migrate to the Integrated Coupling Adapter (ICA-SR).
  • For long-range coupling connectivity, enterprises should migrate to the new CE LR coupling adapter. For long-range coupling connectivity requiring a DWDM, enterprises will need to determine their desired DWDM vendor's plan to qualify the CE LR. See Hardware Announcement 117-031, dated March 14, 2017.

Coupling Facility (CF) processor scalability: The IBM z14 provides a new level of the Coupling Facility Control Code (CFCC), CFLEVEL 22, which provides new capabilities as described below. Coupling Facility work management and dispatching changes for IBM z14 CFLEVEL 22 allow improved efficiency and scalability for Coupling Facility images. Together, these changes will improve the processor scalability and throughput for a CF image.

  • First, ordered work queues have been eliminated from the CF in favor of first-in / first-out queues, avoiding the overhead of maintaining ordered queues.
  • Second, protocols for system-managed duplexing have been simplified to avoid the potential for latching deadlocks between duplexed structures.
  • Third, the CF image is now able to use its processors in a specialized manner to perform specific work management functions when the number of processors in the CF image exceeds a threshold.

CF list notification enhancements: There are significant enhancements in z14 CFLEVEL 22 to CF notifications that inform users about the status of shared objects within a Coupling Facility. The combination of these notification enhancements provides flexibility to accommodate notification preferences among various CF exploiters, and yields more consistent, timely notifications.

  • First, structure notifications can use a round-robin scheme for delivering immediate and deferred notifications that avoids excessive "shotgun" notifications, reducing notification overhead.
  • Second, there is now an option for delivering "aggressive" notifications, which can drive a notification when new elements are added to a queue, providing initiative to get new work processed in a timely manner.
  • Third, notifications can now be driven when a queue transitions between full and not-full, allowing exploiters to redrive messages that could not previously be written to a full queue.

Coupling link constraint relief: IBM z14 provides additional physical coupling link connectivity compared to z13. The maximum number of physical ICA SR coupling links (ports) is increased from a maximum of 40 per CEC to 80 per CEC. These higher limits on z14 support higher levels of connectivity and physical consolidation using ICA SR, as well as the concurrent use of InfiniBand coupling, ICA SR, and CE LR links, for coupling link technology migration purposes.

CF encryption: z/OS V2.3 provides support for end-to-end encryption for both CF data in flight and data at rest in CF structures (as part of a more pervasive encryption solution). Host-based CPACF encryption is used for high performance and low latency. IBM z14 CFLEVEL 22 CF images are not required, but are recommended in order to simplify some sysplex recovery and reconciliation scenarios involving encrypted CF structures. (Note that the CF image itself never decrypts, nor encrypts, any data.) IBM z14 z/OS images are not required, but are recommended for the improved AES CBC encrypt/decrypt performance that z14 provides.

Hardware Management Console (HMC)

HMC/SE user interface: The z14 Hardware Management Console and Support Element will support only the Tree Style user interface. The Classic Style user interface is no longer supported.

The following enhancements have been made to the Tree Style user interface to aid with new users of Tree Style as well as address pain points of existing users.

  • A new Masthead with Favorites and Search controls will help users quickly find and launch tasks.
  • Tasks will now open in tabs within the user interface (instead of separate browser windows) to make finding and managing running tasks easier.
  • There is also the ability to have the task tab "pop-out" into a separate window, giving users the ability to have a similar parallel task display window as on previous Tree Style controls and allowing the task displays to be viewed on other physical displays.

Manage System Time: The Manage System Time task replaces the System (Sysplex) Time task on HMC. The new Manage System Time task provides a simplified workflow for system time management including:

  • Improved help tools to complement and improve system administrator skills:
    • Inline definition of technical terms.
  • Improved user experience with visual representation of configuration panels:
    • Guidance provided within the workflows.
    • Topology displays of system time networks.
    • Errors surfaced in visualization for easier problem resolution of setup errors.
  • Single point of system time management for multiple systems.

IBM Hardware Management Console (HMC) 2.14.0 security enhancements: New security features in the Hardware Management Console (HMC) 2.14.0 available with IBM z14 include Multifactor Authentication, Enhanced Computing in support of NIST Standard 800-147B, Crypto Compliance Levels, FTP through HMC, SNMP/BCPii API Security Controls, Secure Console to Console Communication Enhancements, Remote Browser IP Address Limiting, and more.

  • Multifactor Authentication: The Hardware Management Console will now offer an optional control of Multifactor Authentication in addition to the userid/password controls provided today. If the Multifactor option is selected for a given user, that user will now be required to enter a second authentication factor using a TOTP (Time-based One-Time Password) defined by RFC 6238. RFC 6238 is implemented by freely available smartphone and web apps utilizing a secret key provided per HMC user.
  • HMC Mobile for Z and LinuxONE: New iOS and Android mobile apps are planned to be available for the HMC 2.14.0 supporting z14, z13, and z13s systems. HMC Mobile will help enable HMC users to securely monitor and manage systems from anywhere. The apps provide system and partition views, status monitoring, hardware messages, operating system messages, and the ability to receive push notifications from the HMC using the existing zRSF (z Systems Remote Support Facility) connection. HMC Mobile is disabled by default and, once enabled, provides a robust set of security controls. Administrators can restrict usage to specific HMC users and IP addresses, require the use of app passwords, enable multifactor authentication, restrict the app to read-only access, and more.
  • Firmware tamper detection: z14 will also offer an enhancement on the Support Element that provides notification if tampering with booting of firmware on the server (CPC) is detected. This enhancement is designed to meet the BIOS Protection Guidelines recommended and published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Special Publication 800-147B. If tampering is detected, the Support Element will issue a customer alert via a warning or a lock of the Support Element, depending on the configuration. If "call home" support is enabled on a z14 Hardware Management Console managing the Support Element, additional analysis of the Support Element will be performed and displayed by IBM Resource Link.

    In addition to this support, the Hardware Management Console also has been enhanced to provide attempted tamper monitoring and reporting. A newly manufactured Hardware Management Console directly ordered with z14, or at a later time, is required for this protection. Any detected events of attempted tampering will be logged and will issue a customer alert via a warning or a lock of the Hardware Management Console, depending on setup configuration. In addition, if "call home" support is enabled on the Hardware Management Console, supplementary analysis of events logged by the Hardware Management Console will be available on IBM Resource Link.

    Although customers can carry forward their Hardware Management Consoles on z14, these tamper protection capabilities will be delivered only on newly manufactured Hardware Management Consoles. The z14 environment can contain both Hardware Management Consoles that have been carried forward and newly manufactured Hardware Management Consoles.

  • IBM Enhanced Remote Support Facility: The IBM Enhanced Remote Support Facility was first introduced on zEC12/zBC12 systems and for those systems and z13/z13s, both the Enhanced and Legacy Remote Support Facility support could be utilized. The Enhanced support provided improved problem data uploads and fix data downloads. z14 processors will no longer connect to the legacy IBM Support Facility.

    • z14 HMCs supporting older z10EC/z10BC - z13 systems will still require connections to the legacy IBM Support Facility.
    • z14 HMCs supporting only z14 systems only require IBM Enhanced Support Facility connections.
    • A connection to the IBM Enhanced Support Facility is required to support z14 HMCs regardless of the CPC they are supporting.

    If you had not previously configured firewalls and proxy support with the ability to connect to the Enhanced Support Facility, this will be required for z14 HMC and CPC connections per above rules.
  • Global OSA/SF: The HMC Global OSA/SF will now provide a global view of all OSA PCHIDs and the monitoring and diagnostic information previously available in the Query Host command.
  • New characters supported for Load parms: Starting with z14 the Load parameter for Load task, Activation Load and Image Profiles will now allow three new characters: @#$. z13/z13s or older systems support a character set of A-Z, 0-9, "." (period) and " " (blanks). z14 systems will support a character set of A-Z, 0-9, "." (period), " " (blanks), "@", "#", and "$".
  • FTP through HMC: To maximize security features, IBM recommends that customers keep their IBM Z on a dedicated network with one HMC network used for that network and the second HMC network used for outward communication (IBM Support Facility, remote browsing, automation). However, for systems prior to z14, this created a security challenge for FTP operations originating from the SE. Customers have to either put their FTP server on the IBM Z dedicated network or put their IBM Z on their intranet network.

    Starting with z14, all FTP operations originating from the SE will be proxied through a managing HMC. This now allows the FTP SE originated operations to follow IBM security recommendations. In addition, all HMC/SE tasks that support FTP will provide three options of FTP: FTP, FTPS, and SFTP.

    • FTPS is SSL based and uses certificates to authenticate servers.
    • SFTP is SSH based and uses SSH keys to authenticate servers.
    • Username and passwords are required for client authentication in all three protocols.

  • Console to console communications: HMC consoles have used anonymous cipher suites for some inter-console communication purposes. These cipher suites, while providing encryption and integrity validation, do not provide cryptographic authentication. Network security scanners can detect this, and anonymous cipher suites may not be acceptable to some customers' security policies. Starting with the IBM z14 HMC/SE, the console to console communications solution, when security is enabled, will no longer use anonymous cipher suites and will begin using an industry standard based password driven cryptography system. This system provides cryptographic encryption, integrity validation, and authentication.
  • SNMP/BCPii API enhancements: Prior to z14, when you enabled SNMP BCPii via controls for the HMC/SE, it was enabled for all LPARs to have equal send and receive command capability. Starting with z14 there are new "BCPii Permission" controls which allow you to have granular LPAR/System BCPii command controls. The HMC/SE can be configured for Enable/disable send capability, Enable/disable receive capability, Enable for all senders, and Enable for list of origin partitions. These controls can be specified for CPC via the System Details task (HMC or SE) or can be specified for Images via the Image profile and Change LPAR Security task (HMC or SE). Some additional changes have been made to improve the performance for z/OS BCPii, for query operations Profiles, LPAR Controls/Security data, and EC/MCL data.
  • Removal of Common Infrastructure Module (CIM) Management Interface: The HMC 2.14.0 will no longer support the Hardware Console Common Infrastructure Module (CIM) Management Interface. The Hardware Management Console Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), and Web Services Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) will continue to be supported.

Enhancements to software pricing Technology Transition Offerings

Complementing the announcement of the z14 server IBM is introducing:

  • A new Technology Transition Offering (TTO) called Technology Update Pricing for the IBM z14.
  • New and revised Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes TTOs for actively coupled Parallel Sysplexes (z/OS), Loosely Coupled Complexes (z/TPF), and Multiplexes (z/OS and z/TPF).

Technology Update Pricing for the IBM z14 extends the software price/performance provided by AWLC and CMLC for z14 servers. The new and revised Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes offerings provide a transition to Technology Update Pricing for the IBM z14 for customers who have not yet fully migrated to z14 servers. This ensures that aggregation benefits are maintained and also phases in the benefits of Technology Update Pricing for the IBM z14 pricing as customers migrate.

When a z14 server is in an actively coupled Parallel Sysplex or a Loosely Coupled Complex, you may choose either aggregated Advanced Workload License Charges (AWLC) pricing or aggregated Parallel Sysplex License Charges (PSLC) pricing, subject to all applicable terms and conditions.

When a z14 server is part of a Multiplex under Country Multiplex Pricing (CMP) terms, Country Multiplex License Charges (CMLC), Multiplex zNALC (MzNALC), and Flat Workload License Charges (FWLC) are the only pricing metrics available, subject to all applicable terms and conditions.

When a z14 server is running z/VSE, you may choose Mid-Range Workload License Charges (MWLC), subject to all applicable terms and conditions.

For more information about AWLC, CMLC, MzNALC, PSLC, MWLC, or the Technology Update Pricing and Transition Charges for Sysplexes or Multiplexes TTO offerings, see the Software Pricing website.

Machines eligible to participate in Country Multiplex Pricing

The z14 is the first new generation of IBM Z hardware since the introduction of Country Multiplex Pricing (CMP).

At the time a client first implements a Multiplex, machines currently eligible to be included in the new Multiplex cannot be older than two generations prior to the most recently available server. The most recent server at any given point in time will be considered generation N, and the prior two generations as N-1 and N-2 respectively.

IBM Z hardware family generations concurrent with the general availability of the z14:

IBM z14 z14 3906 N
IBM z13 z13 2964 N-1
IBM z13s z13s 2965 N-1
IBM zEnterprise EC12 zEC12 2827 N-2
IBM zEnterprise BC12 zBC12 2828 N-2
IBM zEnterprise 196 z196 2817 N-3
IBM zEnterprise 114 z114 2818 N-3

Concurrent with the general availability of the z14, the z196 and z114 machines will be designated as previously eligible CMP machines.

Clients are not eligible to create a Multiplex until machines running z/OS or z/TPF (along with any associated CBU machines) that are older than generation N-2 are upgraded, or that workload is transferred to eligible machines, or the older ineligible machines are converted to no longer run z/OS nor z/TPF software. Once a client establishes a Multiplex they may keep the machines originally included in their Multiplex indefinitely, including any machines subsequently designated as previously eligible. Going forward, any machine to be added to an existing Multiplex must conform to the machine types that satisfy the generation N, N-1, and N-2 criteria at the time that machine is added.

Upon the general availability of the z14 (generation N), clients who are still using a generation N-3 machine (z196 or z114) will have a 3-month grace period to transition into CMP while including that generation N-3 machine. This means the client's first CMP invoice must happen the month following 90 days from the general availability of the z14 (September 13, 2017) which means any transition into CMP for a client with a z196 or z114 machine running z/OS or z/TPF must occur no later than January 1, 2018.

IT today is experiencing a time of exponential growth in data and transaction volumes driven by digital transformation. Businesses must be able to manage, store, and protect the information, and, most important, use it for competitive advantage. This is creating the demand to apply intelligence and insight to the data to build new services wrapped for a customized user experience. From a user perspective, IT must create an environment where users have confidence that data is protected and available from anywhere and any device. This ability to be fast and flexible in delivery of new services, with insight and security, will differentiate a business. The z14 delivers unique capabilities to help with that differentiation.

At the core of every enterprise lies core business data, assets which if lost or compromised could often cause irreparable damage. Core business data is also often governed by regulatory requirements designed to protect data and safeguard privacy, often with high penalties in the event of loss or inadvertent disclosure. Internal and external pressures to protect customer data have changed the perspective around how core business data should be handled and protected. Establishing a "perimeter" around core data using encryption is one of the most impactful ways to protect data and prevent against loss. The objective is to create a fortified perimeter around core business data, wherever it may physically reside. The IBM z14 platform provides pervasive encryption capabilities designed to enable you to protect data efficiently, and without requiring application changes.

The IBM z14 platform provides the hardware infrastructure, in a balanced system design, with the encryption capabilities that now make it possible to create a fortified perimeter around critical business data. The Central Processor Assist for Cryptographic Function (CPACF) is standard on every z14 core, and is enabled via feature code #3863. The CPACF has both the cryptographic suite and performance characteristics that can enable bulk encryption of sensitive business data that makes it possible to fortify, intrinsically protecting business data using encryption technology. Working with the new Crypto Express6S feature (#0893), the key materials used to create this fortified data perimeter are protected, using the IBM Z® unique protected key CPACF in which the keys used in the encryption process are not visible to the applications and operating system in clear text form.

The IBM Z operating environments, such as z/OS®, are designed to take advantage of the z14 platform imbedding the use of the z14 cryptographic engines within the operating environment to help create an environment where policies can be enforced that govern intrinsic data protection, helping clients build the perimeter around business data. For more information on IBM Z operating environments' use of the hardware capabilities of z14 see Software Announcement 217-246, dated July 17, 2017, IBM z/OS Version 2 Release 3 -- Engine for digital transformation, dated July 17, 2017.

The z14 provides the infrastructure to meet the demands of a digital business. With up to 170 configurable cores, z14 has performance and scaling advantages over prior generations, and more capacity than the z13 141-way. The new FICON® Express 16S+ features (#0427 and 0428) deliver an increase in I/O rates and in link bandwidth, and a reduction in single-stream latency, providing the system the ability to absorb large applications and transaction spikes driven by unpredictable mobile and IoT devices. Next-generation SMT on z14 delivers improved virtualization performance to benefit Linux™. High-speed connectivity out to the data is critical in achieving exceptional levels of transaction throughput. The new IBM zHyperLink Express adapter (#0431) is a direct connect short distance, IBM Z I/O adapter offering extremely low latency connectivity to FICON storage systems.

With up to 32 TB of real memory, z14 can open opportunities such as in-memory data marts, large buffer pools for data access, and in-memory analytics while giving you the necessary room to tune applications for optimal performance. By exploiting the Vector Packed Decimal Facility that allows packed decimal operations to be performed in registers rather than memory, using new fast mathematical computations, compilers, such as Enterprise COBOL for z/OS, V6.2, Enterprise PL/I for z/OS, V5.2, z/OS V2.3 XL C/C++, the COBOL optimizer, Automatic Binary Optimizer for z/OS, V1.3, and Java™, are optimized on z14. These compilers and optimizer are designed to help improve application performance, reduce CPU usage, and reduce operating costs. Java improvements and the use of crypto acceleration will deliver additional improvements in throughput per core, which gives a natural boost to z/OS Connect EE, WebSphere® Liberty in CICS®, Spark for z/OS, and IBM Java for Linux on z Systems™.

To take advantage of new unstructured data, businesses on IBM Z can leverage the use of application programming interfaces (APIs) that can help with the creation and delivery of innovative new services. Linux on z Systems brings additional value to the platform in the form of the co-location advantages in performance and operational efficiency by running Linux side-by-side with z/OS, z/VSE®, or z/TPF, as well as providing a unique Linux platform for any Linux solution requiring high availability, security, or scalability. Linux on z Systems supports a wealth of new IBM, ISV, and open source products. Many are familiar to application developers, such as Go, Python, Scala, Node.js, Docker, Spark, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, and MariaDB. Access to data previously unavailable, without the need for Extract Transform and Load (ETL), will allow development of intelligent transactions and intuitive business processes.

Stabilization of z/VM V6.3 support: IBM z14 is planned to be the last IBM Z® high-end server and z13s is planned to be the last midrange IBM Z server supported by z/VM V6.3 and the last IBM Z servers that will be supported when z/VM V6.3 is running as a guest (second level). z/VM V6.3 will continue to be supported until December 31, 2017, as announced in Withdrawal Announcement 915-025, dated February 03, 2015.

Future z/VM release guest support: z/VM V6.4 will be the last z/VM release supported as a guest of z/VM V6.2 or older releases.

Disk-only support for z/VM dumps: z/VM V6.4 will be the last z/VM release to support tape as a media option for stand-alone, hard abend, and snap dumps. Subsequent releases will support dumps to ECKD™ DASD or FCP SCSI disks only.

IBM z14 will be the last IBM Z high-end server to support FICON Express8S: z14 will be last IBM Z high-end server to support FICON Express8S (#0409 and #0410) channels. Enterprises should begin migrating from FICON Express8S channels to FICON Express16S+ channels (#0427 and #0428). FICON Express8S will not be supported on future high-end IBM Z servers as carry forward on an upgrade.

IBM z14 will be the last IBM Z server to support HCA3-O and HCA3-O LR adapters: z14 will be last IBM Z server to support HCA3-O fanout for 12x IFB (#0171) and HCA3-O LR fanout for 1x IFB (#0170). As announced previously, z13s is the last midrange IBM Z server to support these adapters. Enterprises should begin migrating from HCA3-O and HCA3-O LR adapters to ICA SR and/or Coupling Express Long Reach (CE LR) adapters on z14, z13, and z13s. For high-speed short-range coupling connectivity, enterprises should migrate to the Integrated Coupling Adapter (ICA-SR). For long-range coupling connectivity, enterprises should migrate to the new Coupling Express LR coupling adapter. For long-range coupling connectivity requiring a DWDM, enterprises will need to determine their desired DWDM vendor's plan to qualify the planned replacement long-range coupling link.

OSA-Express6S 1000BASE-T adapters: OSA-Express 6S 1000BASE-T adapters (#0426) will be the last generation of OSA 1000BASE-T adapters to support connections operating at 100 Mb/second link speed. Future OSA-Express 1000BASE-T adapter generations will support operation only at 1000 Mb/second (1Gb/s) link speed.

Dynamic Partition Manager support of ECKD: IBM intends to deliver support for adding and configuring ECKD FICON disks to partitions created in Dynamic Partition Manager (DPM) mode for Linux running in LPAR, under KVM on z, and under z/VM 6.4.

New DB2® Analytics Accelerator deployment option on the IBM Z infrastructure: The DB2 Analytics Accelerator for z/OS extends IBM Z and DB2 for z/OS to form a hybrid environment, which is capable of running both transactional and analytical SQL query workload. This extension is currently delivered via two deployment options: either as an appliance, based on IBM PureData® System for Analytics, or as a hosted cloud environment. In addition to these two form factors, IBM intends to deliver a new DB2 Analytics Accelerator deployment option on the IBM Z infrastructure. This would further extend deployment options available to DB2 Analytics Accelerator clients. This new deployment option would allow for deeper integration with the IBM Z infrastructure. Clients would benefit with the flexibility to deploy the form factor that best suits their requirements to enable unified homogeneity of service, support, and operations and deeper integration with their processes, such as for their disaster recovery.

Hardware requirements

The hardware requirements for the IBM Z® servers, features, and functions are identified. A new driver level is required. HMC (V2.14.0) plus MCLs and the Support Element (V2.14.0) are planned to be available on September 13, 2017.

You should review the PSP buckets for minimum Machine Change Levels (MCLs) and software PTF levels before IPLing operating systems.

HMC system support

The new functions available on the Hardware Management Console (HMC) version 2.14.0, as described, apply exclusively to IBM z14. However, the HMC version 2.14.0 will also support the systems listed in the table below.

Peripheral hardware and device attachments

IBM devices previously attached to IBM z114, z196, zBC12, zEC12, z13s, and z13 servers are supported for attachment to IBM z14 channels, unless otherwise noted. The subject I/O devices must meet the FICON and Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP) architectures to be supported. I/O devices that meet OEMI architecture requirements are supported only using an external converter. Prerequisite Engineering Change Levels may be required. For further detail, contact IBM service personnel.

While the IBM z14 supports devices as described above, IBM does not commit to provide support or service for an IBM device that has reached its End of Service effective date as announced by IBM.

Note: IBM cannot confirm the accuracy of performance, compatibility, or any other claims related to non-IBM products. Questions regarding the capabilities of non-IBM products should be addressed to the suppliers of those products.

Information on switches and directors qualified for IBM Z FICON and FCP channels can be found in the Library section of Resource Link.
