z/OS Release 9 is Previewed

(Originally posted 2007-02-08.)

See the z/OS Release 9 preview statement if you’re interested in z/OS.

There are lots of interesting Performance items previewed, as well as other line items.

It’s expected to become available in September 2007, following the current pattern of a new release each year (preview in the so-called Spring :-)and release in the Autumn) so expect lots more information on it later this year.

I do wonder how many customers will find today’s LPAR limit of 32 processors (CPs plus zIIPs plus zAAPs) to be a constraint. z/OS R.9 is expected to support 54 in total (CPs + zIIPs + zAAPs).
