IBM unveils powerful new encryption mainframe

IBM Z is the latest in a series of "z" mainframe systems developed by the corporation.

IBM is doing its damnedest to keep the mainframe relevant in a modern context, and believe it or not, there are plenty of monster corporations throughout the world who still use those relics from the earliest days of computing. Each core has hardware accelerated encryption implementing a CP Assist for Cryptographic Function (CPACF). There can be up to 32TB of memory, three times the z13 maximum, and its IO is three times faster as well. We use cookies to improve your browsing experience. The result is a sevenfold increase in cryptographic performance over the z13 mainframe, he said. Mauri said more blockchain centers will be added. When available, these capabilities will include the support of workflow extensions for IBM Cloud Provisioning and Management for z/OS and real-time SMF analytics infrastructure support.

The z13 was launched in 2015.

The pervasive encryption technology may hold additional appeal for companies because of new data governance regulations due to hit next May in the European Union.

Big Blue burbles it can run the world's largest MongoDB instance with 2.5x faster NodeJS performance compared to paltry x86-based platforms.

1 000 concurrent NoSQL databases. In addition, data can be encrypted in bulk given improvements in the silicon dedicated to the cryptographic algorithms. IBM's key management system hardware causes keys to self-destruct in response to intrusions, and they are then reconstituted after the intrusion, the company said. The capability can be extended to other devices such as storage systems and servers in the cloud. Clients can now co-locate applications to optimise qualities of services that are priced competitively with public cloud and on-premises platforms.

To further beef up security, IBM has also encrypted APIs and encryption keys. At the heart of IBM Z is an encryption engine that will encrypt data associated with any application, cloud service or database.

Encrypted APIs. IBM z/OS Connect technologies can make it easy for cloud developers to discover and call any IBM Z application or data from a cloud service, or for IBM Z developers to call any cloud service. Solitaire modeled the cost of running a business on IBM's z14 and compared it with data from thousands of businesses using x86 systems of different sizes to selectively encrypt data.

"The vast majority of stolen or leaked data today is in the open and easy to use because encryption has been very hard and expensive to do at scale", said Ross Mauri, General Manager, IBM Z.

"The pervasive encryption that is built into - and is created to extend beyond - the new IBM Z really makes this the first system with an all-encompassing solution to the security threats and breaches we've been witnessing in the past 24 months", said Peter Rutten, analyst at IDC's Servers and Compute Platforms Group, in a statement.

As for pricing, IBM unveiled three container pricing models. Report author Kat Lind concluded that in IBM Z and x86 systems supporting the same overall level of business performance, the IBM Z encryption system would deliver 18 times the performance for one-twentieth the cost of the selective encryption systems in the x86 systems studied.

The pricing changes are meant to fend off the public cloud as well.

The company expects to ship the mainframe in the third quarter.

Sacconaghi said he has seen a decline in mainframe hardware revenues from a historic $3bn - $4bn a year to $2bn in fiscal 2016, attributable to fewer new workloads or volumes moving to the mainframe, and some potential migration of Linux workloads off the mainframe.
