Hi everybody,

where is the big deal in running Linux on System-z? Hardware-Invests in IFLs and RAM are extremely high (compared to Intel-based ESX's), so that most memory-eating Applicationserver-Workloads seem to be very expensive. Also I cannot see big cost-saving-effects in e.g. Oracle-Licensing - keep in mind that Oracle-Licensing-Factor for intel ist 0.5, for z 1!
