Manage MIPS to Control Mainframe Costs
A booming economy is fueling application growth that demands more and more computing capacity. At the same time, IT departments are faced with increasing compute demands while being asked to reduce expenditures. This simply isn’t working. Even with IBM® making architectural changes to its System Z to reduce the amount of general processor MIPS required to run existing applications, it is not enough to meet the demand.
Read this paper to learn about tools IT can use to understand how existing MIPS capacity is being used and where it can make adjustments to enable application and transaction growth without having to purchase more MIPS.
