Mantissa Product Families

zEnterprise VirtualizationzConsolidation

The goal of Mantissa’s z86VM™ product is to provide a simple, more secure and resilient virtual x86 server and virtual desktop solution at lower cost than competitors. Businesses are replacing technology rapidly at great cost and inefficiency when spread across a large number of devices. z86VM, running on the IBM zEnterprise class servers, can dramatically reduce the number of system footprints while at the same time improving security and business resilience. Most important, it can be binary compatible with existing x86 implementations which can simplify migration and speed deployment.

Consolidation, Integration, Security, Resilience and Cost Savings

Buseinsses running existing zEnterprise servers can quickly leverage the best of both System z and x86 architectures under a single hardware platform. In doing so, they can leverage the commodity desktop and server infrastructure of x86 and the value of transaction processing and database serving of System z.

For businesses with a large volume of x86 instances, z86VM can provide a valuable deployment alternative that helps the business reduce capital and operations costs, simplify the operational environment and improve the security and resilience of their operations.
