Why buy a LinuxONE?


Presentation

In this session you will hear about how the worlds of open source and mission critical computing are colliding as more clients look to deploy open source tools and applications on platforms built for performance, scalability and more importantly security.  This session will cover how clients are deploying IBM technology to underpin workloads such as Blockchain, Know Your Customer big data projects as well as core banking and payments. This high level session will cover the business challenges and how these are addressed by deploying LinuxONE technology to address the non-functional requirements posed by the applications and higher level business drivers.
