IBM launches new mainframe

Author: JT Smith

From a ComputerWorld story on IBM's launch of its first 64-bit mainframe computer: "The new servers also support a feature that allow users to carve out
virtually thousands of 'virtual servers' within one physical server, or
partitions within a server.

'It means I can have gobs of Linux servers running within one partition,'
said Bill O'Donnell, a senior information technology consultant with the
state of Wisconsin in Madison."
