In spring 2001, within only a year of the ﬁrst zSeries introduction, the z900 was given the “best hardware platform” award at Linux World. Who would have guessed in 1995 that a mainframe would walk away with a major open systems prize? zSeries has since been renamed System z, and it has been an incredible success. By 2004, it achieved 9,000 MIPS with a 32 co-processor conﬁguration in the zSeries 990. Reﬂecting a “better, best” product strategy, IBM also introduced at the same time the zSeries 890, a 1,360 MIPS four-processor machine for less computing-intensive applications.
