In 2008, Mantissa announced on the IBMVM discussion list they were creating an Intel-on-z/VM product called z/VOS. The news generated restrained excitement. Intel machines had seriously threatened the mainframe’s existence for decades, so embracing the newly hosted platform wasn’t necessarily attractive. Yet, replacing dozens or hundreds of “squatty little boxes” with virtual machines under z/VM was an exciting concept and could further aid the resurgence of the mainframe, as has Linux on IBM Z.

The goal is to provide a desktop hosting environment ….Ultimately, through use of the z86VM product from Mantissa, a complete reduction in servers necessary to host PCs may be possible. Perhaps 50,000 desktops could be supported across four mainframes instead of 500 virtualized x86 servers.
