NewsFactor Network writes, "In a move that extends its affinity for open source computing to mainframe servers, IBM has unveiled two Linux-only servers aimed at moving mainframes into the mainstream for small and mid-size business. IBM said the dedicated Linux servers, a zSeries mainframe and a mid-range iSeries server, can consolidate from 20 to hundreds of servers from Sun Microsystems or Intel. The new servers also can bring together as many as 15 stand-alone Linux and Windows servers on one machine, according to the company."
