Once a month we like to pick blog articles from other sources that we feel are interesting enough to talk about on the Planet Mainframe blog. Here are this month’s picks:
New z15 for Multicloud– Cloud-Native– Instant Recovery

Hybrid multicloud: A mouthful, but the right approach
Planet Mainframe friend Craig Mullins is a respected voice in the mainframe community; he’s been writing authoritative books for years now – his DB2 Developer’s Guide is in its 6th edition, and he’s publishing A Guide to Db2 Performance for Application Developers later this year. When Crain writes, people read. So, it’s no surprise that IBM has again posted an article of his on their website. Definitely worth a read.

Well, the z15 is big news in mainframe circles, as well as in big-business IT enterprise circles, so it’s no shock that everyone’s talking about it now. The folks at Mainframe Debate have some interesting things to say about its impact on cloud, security, availability and compression. Worth a read.
